“Soturin Uni (”Warriors dream/sleep”) was the first song to be composed from the album. It set the tone on what kind of sounds and atmosphere the album would reflect. The lyrics tell of a person who after fighting enough for one lifetime wishes to let go, to move on from this world and finally become part of something greater, a part of nature’s beauty. The song also addresses the theme of the whole album, how thin and fickle the line between dream and reality can be.”
Sielulintu (Soul bird) by Einvigi is a dive to dreamworld themed with nature and Finnish mythology. In July 2020 the band signed with Inverse Records to publish their debut album Sielulintu. The feel of the songs flow through traditional instrumental rock and all the way to the atmospheres of black metal. Einvigi’s music has been categorized also as blackgaze. A genre pioneered by the French band Alcest.
