"...Irukandji is a peaceful harmony of sound between the past and present. It has been thought out by musicians who have always been inclined to bend to the acoustic profile of their instruments and therefore are attracted by traditions. They belong to that echelon of up-and-coming young artists dedicated to studying possible alternative sounds and known aesthetics. It is commonplace that emotional intensity and empathy are emotions far from the aesthetics of Scandinavian jazz. In this CD, four young Swedes dedicate their attention to the pulsating core of the earth and point out a possible escape route, by splitting up and redesigning the past, testing and readapting an amalgam between tradition and the avant-garde. A CD with a striking emotional impact and visionary power, it follows tradition: it narrates to excite more than teach." (F. Scoppio)
