In Juankoski, the nights are either very, very long. Or very, very short. Right here in the middle of Finland’s vastness, surrounded by a thousand lakes and impenetrable woods, life has an altogether different rhythm. NEØV pick it up, add their heartbeat and carve pure music out of it. Music that bears the magic of Finnish nature and yet resonates with the pulse in the United States, in France, in Germany or in Australia. This unique melange makes NEØV one of the most exciting Indie Pop discoveries Finland has to offer – and their new record “Volant” a true game changer. For Finland, but also for NEØV.
Discovering new worlds, that’s what this band is all about for the two brothers Anssi and Samuli Neuvonen. And not only for them: Also Ari Autio, third part of the trio, is eternally aiming for new horizons. After quite some years as a quintet, “Volant” is their first step as a trio. And a big step it will be. Diverse, layered, fascinating and brim-full with that very special bittersweet aura present in every piece of Eastern Finnish folklore: NEØV are indeed delivering a unique brand of Indie Pop. Precious arrangements, fragile guitar work, enticing loops and beats, echoing piano… a game changer, we said it before and we say it again.
