The Blanko

The Blanko

With their two albums, Flying Colours and Into the Silence, The Blanko has claimed its place amongst the great Finnish rock trios such as Hurriganes and Kingston Wall. Led by singer and guitarist Pauli Hauta-aho, the band only consists of three members, but their combined passion and ethos creates an illusion of a much more plentiful line-up.

The Blanko plays progressive pop rock that reminds us of Muse, or Placebo under stimulants. Their music is all about tight guitar riffs, great melodies and a fantastic atmosphere. The virtuosity of Hauta-aho's guitar playing is perfectly complemented by the duo responsible for the rhythm section. The audiences are captivated by the band's stage presence, the exhilarating guitar solos and relentless drum beats. The band is often described as one hell of a live act, come and see why!
