Päivää ! If you read my blog posts this month, you can notice that I introduced two very good indie pop rock Finnish bands last week (Satellite Stories, Big Wave Riders). The Finnish music scene and Finnish new bands are quite interesting and promising.
When writing my post about the band Big Wave Riders, I found a live video of them made by the excellent creative collective Stereotype Helsinki. The song 'Cassette 2012' is on their forthcoming album.
Delay Trees is a four-piece band from Helsinki and Hämeenlinna, southern Finland. The frontman is Rami Vierula that you can hear singing on the songs. On their website, you could read below their band name: "Tender pop songs that will melt your ears." TRUE. How ? The last cold, rainy and cloudy days of September in Paris this year perfectly fits to the songs of Delay Trees. I discovered them last week and some of you probably have already heard of them. They self-released their debut EP in March 2009, it's called "Soft Construction" and begins very softly with the first song "Desert Island Song". Each time I listen to it, it makes me feel relaxed and dreamy, perfect before sleeping. It's the slowest song of the EP with the track "Replay". Their songs are the kind of songs you want to listen when staying at home, watching the rain drop outside your window, not that kind of depressing songs, but nostalgic, melancholy and soothing ones. You could easily like this band. Their songs are described as dreamy and mellow indie-pop songs, with a light touch of psychedelia. Delay Trees is one of my new favorite (Finnish) bands and Rami Vierula's voice has something to do with that.
"About Brothers" is the second song of their EP. An indie-pop song with light melodies and xylophone notes. Watch the video here and go at the end of this post, there are surprises for you:
"We played a fun gig at Lahti and someone made a feel-good video out of it accompanied by 'About Brothers' from 'Soft Construction EP'.", Rami Vierola.
