Falun, Sweden based psychedelic stoner/doom metal band Gaupa releases a live video for the hauntingly beautiful song »Mjölksyra«, which was recorded at Kulturhuset Falun in April 2020.

The band comments: “Before we hit the studio, here’s a throwback from when we played »Mjölksyra« live at Kulturhuset Falun in 2020! You can watch the full video over on Nuclear Blast Youtube channel.”

Gaupa (lynx in Swedish) is a female fronted rock band from Falun, Sweden. With surreal lyrics, an energetic singer, and a sound of progressive stoner rock with doom/folk/psychedelic influences, they released their debut EP in June 2018 and have already established an international name on the underground scene. »Gaupa« – their self-titled debut EP – was well received and the band did one of their first performances on Scandinavia’s biggest rock festival, Sweden Rock, and have been aired on different radio shows all over the world. Gaupa signed with german label Kozmik Artifactz and released the EP on vinyl in October 2019.

Gaupa had a busy 2018/2019 with playing at different festivals and venues. Critics seemed not only impressed by the studio recordings and diverse arrangements but also by the level of intensity displayed live. The talk in between songs are kept to a minimum and the tension are soon to be broken by another screeching guitar feedback delivered together with hair swung in fanatic synchronisation. Gaupa seem to leave their audiences both in astonishment and with a good sense of ache in their necks.

In April 2020, Gaupa followed up to release their first full-length album »Feberdröm« gaining even more attention both from the underground scene, as well as from Nuclear Blast Records.

The band is entering the studio again in Fall 2021 to work on the second full length album for a 2022 release.

Gaupa is:
Jimmy Hurtig – Drums
Erik Sävström – Bass
Daniel Nygren – Guitars
David Rosberg – Guitars
Emma Näslund – Vocals
