WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM FINNISH BAND MEOW PIGLET

Meow Piglet, the emerging indie alt-pop duo hailing from Helsinki, Finland, has unveiled their debut album, “Deeper,” offering a sonic journey through intimate narratives of vulnerability, risk-taking, and profound introspection.

The duo, formed in 2018 during their studies in Amsterdam, brings forth a unique sound that defies easy categorization—a testament to their commitment to creating music that transcends conventional boundaries.

“Deeper” unfolds against the backdrop of the pandemic, and its tracks serve as poignant reflections of the isolation and monumental shifts that defined the era.

The album’s theme revolves around the idea of moving forward. Meow Piglet skillfully navigates the complexities of this theme, questioning whether the impetus to move forward stems from the forced stagnation of the pandemic or the innate fear of confronting oneself. The struggle against an uncertain future is palpable in their lyrics, creating a narrative that is as much about facing fears as it is about acknowledging and embracing change.

The album’s title itself suggests an invitation to plunge into the profound depths of the human psyche—a journey both introspective and cathartic.

Musically, Meow Piglet crafts a unique sonic palette that refuses to be confined to any particular genre. The result is a refreshing blend of indie, alternative, and pop elements, showcasing the duo’s versatility and willingness to experiment. The production quality is commendable, with each track carefully curated to evoke a specific emotional response.

Standout tracks include Sunset, a little too much and for the night Meow Piglet’s vocals seamlessly intertwine with intricate instrumentals, creating a mesmerizing atmosphere. The album’s overall cohesion is one to consider, the album does have a few “fillers” tracks that could have had more time spent on them but that common on a debut record.

In conclusion, “Deeper” by Meow Piglet is fun. They invite listeners to navigate the intricacies of their journey.

Meow Piglet leaves a mark with their debut and we look forward to hearing whats coming next.
