Time to mellow out this Sunday. Right now the best way to do that is to listen to the Heartbeat Band from Vaasa. A band that plays “melancholic music from the cold north”.
Their new song is called Hands That Built and the music video seems to honor the seaside heritage of their hometown on the Finnish west coast. I guess the music does too, remembering harsh times and working conditions in the prior centuries.
Honor it does as these guys sound great, and a special thumbs up goes out to the female vocalist Felicia Eriksson, whose voice is both controlled and relaxed. She brings a great feeling to the music of this great band.
Hopefully we’ll hear more from them soon.
EDIT: I just read that the video was recorded in Kaskinen/Kaskö, a very small town a bit south from Vaasa, so let’s just go with “the seaside heritage of the Ostrobothnian coast”, ok?
