In the beginning of March, Finnish youth Jaakko Eino Kalevi, whose dreamy electropop draws parallels with artists such as Ariel Pink and James Ferraro. He was also introduced to the broader public as a guest on David Byrne’s American Utopia.
He used to drive a tram, today he drives dreams. That’s one way of succinctly summing up the story of Finnish multi-talent Jaakko Eino Kalevi. His music is often hazy and strange in the same way that dreams can be hazy and strange, weaving through soft rock, nostalgically electronic pop and saxophone-driven disco melancholia. His carefree attitude to life and unusual adventures place him firmly alongside his idol Ariel Pink, who once even spent the night in his bed.
On his fifth album Out Of Touch, released in 2018, the musician, who also appeared on the latest record by the legendary David Byrne, tackles the constant connectivity of the modern world. His escapism leads him into an essential, blissed-out state of opulent melodies and lucid lyrics, which he’ll bring to Ljubljana in March.
The music of Sofie Winterson, the sister of members of My Baby and Blue Crime, creates a cinematic world through atmospheric key sounds, electronic drums, reverbed guitars and her powerful, beautiful voice. Since her first releases in 2014, she’s continued to garner the support of a growing fan base with encouraging nods from the likes of Gorilla vs. Bear, The 405 and Clash Magazine and is a RBMA Montreal Class of 2016 graduate. Her second album Sophia Electric was released at the end of 2018 via Excelsior Recordings.
