Finnish singer/songwriters Tanja Torvikoski and Petri Kuusela circled their shared hometown of Oulu for years before they actually met.
They were both following their own musical paths that seemed to be veering towards session musicianship and/or solo careers. However, from the moment they first sat down together to play, the wish to find out if they could do more together became undeniable. They began writing together and found leverage in the American singer-songwriter tradition to lift up also the heavier topics. A remote cottage in Posio, Lapland, became the lab for their musical experimenting. After a couple of years, it looked as though an entire album was on its way.
The debut album, Ship’s Bell (out March 1st) swirls around the theme of collective, universal loneliness that also herds us closer together. Ship’s Bell is a mix of timeless singer-songwriter moments going up against vast, cinematic dimensions with vocal harmonies, violins and lush guitar textures. Regardless of the melancholic undercurrent, the album bears a strong sense of hope and uplift.
