Band: Pop duo – Jonas Ursin and Roope Hakkarainen – playing
pop music with its heart in folk. They gained a lot of praises
with their 2016 debut LP These Days.
New album: WHERE FROM HERE
Released: 24 September 2021
“Musically and story-wise, the theme of the new album is change.
The album goes through awkward but joyfully liberating stages in
front of a new beginning. Stylistically, it still relies on familiar pop
folk, but influences are heard from country and more beating indie
and rock music.”
Turn Up The Volume: As our wounded world breathes a sigh of relief
now that the Covid-19 crisis seems to be under control, twinkling and
sparkling pop records of change and hope and restarting again ring like
bells announcing a new beginning. Which happens right here. Although
the songs have a melancholic and reflective touch – are we there yet? –
better times are ahead of us.
Rich orchestrations, tingling melodiousness, feel-good arrangements,
and wistful vocality, it’s all there to please your ears.
Here we go…
