"Maanpako" begins in a state of gentle nostalgia, erupts into a post-rock storm punctuated by blackened screams, then settles back into the calm where it began. The song, like all of Kauan's work, paints vivid pictures that range from the melancholy to the rapturous. As a recent Stereogum review puts it, “Serene guitars give way to crashing devastation and back again... Kauan seems to exist just out of reach on the edge of a dream, where equal parts hope, wonder, and despair are all possible.”

Ice Fleet, Kauan’s eighth full-length, is based on the true story of an unidentified fleet of ships discovered in 1930 in northernmost Russia, completely frozen under the permafrost with crew and passengers' bodies grotesquely preserved.
