Dutch artist and Nordic folk pioneer Kati Rán presents the second single “KÓLGA | 16” for the 2024 release of her long-awaited 13-track full-length album “SÁLA”. The new track features Gaahl on guest vocals and is presented with a beautiful visualizer by Costin Chioreanu.
”KÓLGA | 16 is one of the coldest waves of the nine billow maidens of Rán, one that can take your breath away in an overpowering chokehold of ice water. What we deem the most ‘destructive of powerful forces of nature’ is as well a necessary and powerful catalyst for change, or gain newfound clarity.” Kati Rán portrays.“KÓLGA | 16 also touches upon many female figures that in one way or another made significant sacrifices in their lives, have been sacrificed, betrayed, persecuted or deliberately put in another light in history, in mythology and various folktales across time and culture.” Kati continues.
Kati Rán is known for her collaborative audio work for Netflix’s tv series VIKINGS: VALHALLA, films, and work for videogames, her stage appearances with Wardruna, Myrkur, and Gaahl’s Wyrd to name a few, and her previous releases of the successful album; and Nordic dark folk tracks “Blodbylgje” and Icelandic track “Unnr | Mindbeach”; that run millions of streams and gathered a tightly knit Nordic Folk music loving audience around her.


Kati Rán elaborates: ”Signing to Svart Records was for me the most natural next step to collaborate and release my music with long-standing expertise in bringing out amazing artists and vinyl for true music connoisseurs, and to be able to bring my audience a full experience to enjoy my new Nordic Dark folk album SÁLA (Old Norse for both “sea” and “soul”). My album SÁLA has been tenuously crafted and produced together with Jaani Peuhu (Swallow the Sun, IANAI, Lord of the Lost, Hallatar) and is curated of sorts by my many years of writing, researching and traveling the Northern landscapes; taking on board with me incredible artists, sounds, musicians and producing it together closely with Jaani and also Christopher Juul (Heilung) to breathe the Nordic soul into the heart of this album.”
