Sounds From The Other City

Mikko Joensuu >>> Stage 1 >>> Curated by Hey! Manchester


Although celebrated cult Finnish shoegaze revivalists Joensuu 1685 went quiet around 2010, their frontman, Mikko Joensuu, has shown no signs of slowing down. Tapping into the American folk music tradition, shoegaze, drone-rock and psychedelia, his trinity of ‘Amen’ albums showcased a distinctive and deeply personal song-writing style that favours lengthy, raw incursions full of cracked and parched beauty. A welcome respite for when your soul needs a bit of soothing during the madness that is Sounds From the Other City.
