Risto

 

Risto

Risto is a four-strong band hailing from Tampere. And that's the end of matters of course in respect of this combo. Sorry.

Some may think that Risto's savagely gyrating rhythms are too acid for them, but others – like the voters of almost any reader poll in the Finnish music media in 2006, when the band's debut album came out – just cannot resist the vocalist Risto Ylihärsilä's twistedly nihilistic moods, where feelings run from one extremity to another like a ladder in a pretty girl's tights. Risto's appreciation of the importance of being earnest is at its most heart-felt onstage when the band's energy jumps and strains like a wild horse on the first day of spring. Pretty soon the audience starts to feel equally frenzied, and the only cure to that condition is to dance, dance, dance until the new morning breaks outside and somebody steals the mirror ball.
