On Volcano - The Explorer (Live at YLE)

Here's again a Finnish indie band, not from Helsinki, Oulu or Kuopio, but from Tampere. On Volcano is a four-piece band with a young woman as lead singer.

After releasing an EP called "My Sleep Was Filled With Dreams" in 2008, they just released last week their 4-tracks EP "New Blood". Their songs are clearly post-rock and shoegaze genre and are on average at least 6 minutes long. Not many lyrics, but beautiful ballads, smooth melodies, sweet and gentle voice, great electric guitar and drums arrangements. I had the impression to almost hear the wind and autumn leaves falling on the grass... Better for waking up softly in the morning than before sleeping.
