Dino Mrkalj and Mladen Novaković are Sayana, electro band from Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 2016, after hiatus from their previous band DBAU, they formed Sayana and released the first EP, on Happy Days Records from Serbia. In 2017, Oxid and Hero EP followed. They like to point out, that everything was recorded by themselves, with no additional use of samples.
The main sound of the band – which in the live edition consists of four members – is a combination of synth influenced indie, post-rock, and electro, that finds its roots in the late 80s and 90s. The track In The Sand is a no exception. With a sing-with-me vocal from FatV, the track is mostly followed by a dubby guitar, floaty synths and a strong disco-like rhythm, that slowly transcends the listener. With its seven minutes, it respectfully represents a piece of the past, for the audience right here & now.
