Uplifting Finnish Pop/Rock
on 28 January 2014
Got this on Monday, listened a few times and decided it was ok. On Tuesday however, I loved it and have been playing it constantly.
Unlike 2010's more rocked out and orchestrated " A Way Away", this is a gentler and smoother record. The dark gothic imagery is gone and as the album cover shows, light has flooded in. Warm acoustic guitars, strings and glacial pianos complement Jonsu's distinct vocals. In places this is quite beautiful and uplifting. Again we get strong melodies, sometimes odd lyrics and always a faint whiff of Eurovision.
I must admit Indica have always been a bit of a guilty pleasure. You'd turn them down if your mate walked in. I don't usually listen to such blatantly uplifting and sunny music. It took me a few listens to get my head around this but I got rewarded.
Standout tracks for me are: A Mountain Made Of Stone, Uncovered, Hush Now Baby and War Child.
