!Summer festivals!

9 Jun

It has been so sunny and warm in Finland that our time on the computer has been limited.. as you can imagine. Us finns we enjoy the sun probably more than an average western person as the winter here is SO long! We also just moved in to a new house where we are setting up our studio to start songwriting. We are dying to write more songs, this spring has been so busy that we didn´t have time for it! Now we have a very nice amount of summer shows and will have time to hang out at the countryside studio, drink orangejuice (fresh, of course), jam and write music.

ALWAYS ON THE MOVE
Someone just asked me during an interview if we will ever settle down. Seems like we are constantly on the move. Boston, camper, Helsinki (where we have moved in 4 times). Only thing I could answer was, that we are very spontaneous people and always live with the feeling. Also, we dont own so much at the moment so moving is quite painless! In a way its very exiting to be a little bit unsure of the future. You know? Or then we are nuts. Either way, summer is here and we are happy among everyone else!

!SUMMER FESTIVALS!
Lets get to the summer shows. Like I said above, we have nice pace with playing concerts and we are traveling nicely around Finland. As usual, lots of shows will be updated along the summer, but at the moment the schedule looks like this:

SHARING THE STAGES WITH AMAZING BANDS
Most of the gigs we are doing duo or trio (with our drummer), Pori Jazz will be a special full band show! There we are sharing the Kirjurinluoto Areena stage with AMADOU&MARIAM!! A band from Mali we have listened to A LOT. At Provinssirock we are playing same date with BLUR, BASTILLE, MEW and many others. You can follow our summer trip on our facebook page.

With lots of love,
