Far up in the north of Europe Finland has become famous for its export of epic goth rock and symphonic metal acts. Everyone knows bands as Nightwish, Apocalyptica, HIM or why not the band which opened people’s eyes for Finnish music, Hanoi Rocks. However, in the shadow of the metal scene it’s also a country that has produced lots of high quality indie pop and indie rock. At Messed!Up we have been huge fans of bands as French Films, The Crash and Satellite Stories (please restart!), and last year we just happened to came across shoegazing kraut-punk seven-piece, including four guitarists (at times even five), Teksti-TV 666.
The band describes themselves as “As Neu! playing The Ramones” and have already toured with Kvelertak across Scandinavia, and have released three EP’s and the amazing mini-album “Aidattu Tulevaisuus”. Today, they’re one of the most in-demand live acts at home turf, and performances abroad have caused a bit of a storm, earning them quite a well-deserved live reputation.
When they play Gothenburg at the end of January, Messed!Up will sit down with the band and chat about their future plans of conquering Europe.
