Cankun is back on Hands In The Dark (LP) and Not Not Fun (CS/DL) with Only The Sun Is Full Of Gold, his 3rd full length album follow-up to the brilliant and unanimously acclaimed 2013’s Culture of Pink.

This time, Frenchman Vincent Caylet is inviting us to a two part journey: Side A sets Cankun’s new tempo, taking the listener to darker spheres compared to his previous works, moving from a tropical beach to the middle of a dense, uncanny and unpredictable jungle, where the sun never reaches. The second side immerses us into new, unexplored territories, either the deepest or highest layers of our planet – you choose.

If the previous album was marked by a net improvement in the texture and sound, this new instrumental opus shows a step-up in writing. Caylet’s work is mutating into a more mature and to the point loop based, psyche-dub, lo-fi music, that is flirting at times with prog, post rock and ambient electro.

Most bands copy and paste their magic formula from one album to the other, however in Cankun’s case, the uncompromised evolution sounds refreshingly natural. It will take quite some time to digest the complexity of this album but we are already looking forward to listen to Cankun’s next move!
