Studio Killers (UK)

Studio Killers

For the first time ever, the hugely popular hit song machine known as Studio Killers takes the stage! The group of mystery members behind the animated digital characters will play their first two live gigs in Finland this July. One of these gigs will be on Saturday at Ilosaarirock Festival, where you can finally see, hear, and experience the music and the visual universe of this electro music super group.

From the very beginning, Studio Killers have shrouded themselves in mystery. Their debut single Ode To The Bouncer was an instant success, and the song conquered top ten lists across Europe. Their second single Eros and Apollo took the social media and radio playlists by storm. It was, however, the third single release Jenny that finalized their victorious hat-trick. The song was one of the most played hits in Finland last year, and Studio Killers' debut album reached the peak place not only in Finland, but on the iTunes dance list in Canada and the United States, as well. Before their first live performances, the band will release a new single called Grande Finale in May.

The band's animated characters are the vocalist and the leading lady Cherry, and the dj-producers Goldie Foxx and Dyna Mink. Their music combines electronic computer-elements with flirty melodies and peculiar, witty lyrics. In addition to the music, Studio Killers is known for their visuality, created by a Finnish artist Eliza Jäppinen. Despite having fans around the world trying to guess the true identities of the artists behind the band, their mystery is intact.
