Kauriinmetsästäjät (FIN)


It's hard to come up with a band more fitting than Kauriinmetsästäjät to take the stage as the summer night closes in at Laulurinne. Heikki Petrell and Tuomas Kaitanen have previously made name for themselves playing guitar infused indierock, but now they dive into the pool of cool electronic pop music. This duo shows you how simple elements, modern synth sounds, and house beats are turned into grandiose and outstanding pop songs that hit your party nerve.

The music of Kauriinmetsästäjät reminds us what it is like to be young, wild, and free. It's about daydreaming, escapism, and celebration, tinged with longing. Their newest single Revi mua, made in collaboration with Vesta, reveals a more melancholic side of Kauriinmetsästäjät. It's all in the youth!

It seems that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg of their productiveness. All signs imply that these two will become future hit song machine. The buzz around Kauriinmetsästäjät is just starting!
