Slovenia’s Širom play “imaginary folk or folk from a parallel universe”, mostly, on handmade and global instrumentation. Oscillating between acoustic folk and contemporary post-rock meditation, Širom drift from improvisation to structured composition and back again. Their third album A Universe That Roasts Blossoms For A Horse will be released in September by Glitterbeat’s instrumental music imprint tak:til.
