Listen to Gea and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
Electro-folk / artpop act GEA’s sound is described to be light and airy, full of magic and mystery.
The songs are based on piano/keyboard led instrumentations combined with minimalistic electronic arrangements giving room to the authenticity and rawness of emotions and vocals. There are also some traditional Finnish folk instruments used in a modern context, creating an interesting atmosphere, and giving new life to some almost forgotten instruments.
GEA released her debut album Butterflies on September 11th 2017 in New York followed by a series of live performances in US and Mexico, where she performed at Festival Ajusco. The album is based on GEA’s songwriting and Mikko H Haapoja’s production.
GEA's music video Alone won Hollywood Intl Golden Film Award 2017 for best editing.
“What makes Butterflies most interesting from an electronic standpoint is how the group uses traditional, almost folk-adjacent beat structures in many of their tracks like “Followers” and “Real You and Me” but turns them into ambient electronic beats, adding a modern context but also a deeper layer than both the average indie pop and the average ambient. It also very much re-affirms what Bjork and some others say about electronic music indeed being ancient and tribal, no matter what compositional medium is used. In GEA’s case it’s a mix of analog and electronic media, and the result is stark and gorgeous.” Layla Marino, Your EDM.
