Their motto is 'Playing is fun'.

KAKAOKAMKAMI were formed as a four-piece instrumental rock outfit at Helsinki, Finland in 2007. The founding members - Alex 'Lizzie' NUIJA, Dmitri ZHERBIN, Mikhail NOVIKOV and Sasha KRETOVA - could build their experimental-shoegaze-post-rock style up through gigging many times in Russia, Estonia, and Finland. In 2008 they released the first EP '@' on their own, with various instruments used. Although sadly Mikhail left the outfit in May, 2009, a month after they released the second EP 'EP' via a Finnish independent label Jozik Records established by them, they were not disheartened and have continued gigging and recording actively.

In March 2010 KAKAOKAMKAMI released 'Snowballs' EP, in that they displayed more psychedelic, experimental and distorted soundscape.

— First review of this album —
4 stars Thanks to Keishiro-san - he introduced this band to me. What I expected from four Russian musicians, founded post-rock band in Finland? Whatever you want! But after I listened for samples, I was really pleasantly surprised. And at first possibility just tried to find their release to listen more seriously.

First of all, music on this EP can be placed under Post-Rock tag only formally. In fact, they play much wider collection of genres, but all components are perfectly melted in one ( quite hot ) mix. Even in such a short release, as this 6 songs long EP, open ear listener will find plenty of musical sounds and ideas. Starting from very characteristic Nordic dreamy atmospheric post-rock piece (influenced by Sigur Ros, etc), but with some warmer Slavic soul injected sounds in it, this album will show guitar/strings melodic attacks, electronic noices, ambient soundscapes, very melancholic violin sound. And all these - in very fresh and melodic, but never cheese frames.

After very first listening I realize, that I like this vintage keyboards, complex compositions, warm but dynamic strings, freshness of all sound. Very professional musicianship. And only pity thing is I missed their concerts in Tallinn and Helsinki just to see them live. Hope still will have such chance though.

Very recommended as great example of revitalized post-rock.

4 stars We can find KAKAOKAMKAMI developed amazingly - they have got fuzzier and rougher than before. However we are sure they should make definite progress day by day. Their third EP 'Snowballs' says so, with ten noisy freaky launchers (songs).

Please be surprised at the first track Untitled ... effective and impressive noises and heavy fuzzy bluesy guitar sounds can jackknife our brain aggressively. And we hear such a quirky rhythm ensemble and such a depressive, warped, sharp-edged violin solo in Number 9. This massive attacks drenched with intentional tension are very drastic for us. The third, fifth, and seventh Untitled's are something tense too, full of violent noise attacks and eerie quietness. Boot Boot is, despite of the whole tensive air, a song with a spice of loose flood (plus a bulky mass of painful dins). Very fascinating we can hear various sound appearances. Until the last 'secret' Untitled with weird, bubbling, horrible ghost guitar and calm, laidback rhythm ensemble sounds, we can break out with their dogmatic and flexible soundflowergarden.

Sure they be so suitable to be called as a post-post-rock outfit. Good job.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
