IRENE crafts raw, minimalistic, misty, sensual and emotionally naked nordic pop tunes. Having grown up in a small Finnish town near the Arctic Circle, IRENE is no stranger to extremes.
Her music emerges from the silence of wilderness, holding the space with her light-filled melancholia.
IRENE released her debut single “KEEP ON WALKING” in November 2017 along with a haunting music video that embodies a fiery metaphor of the relationship with her abusive piano teacher.
The Nordic Spotify playlists gave her debut single a warm welcome, and it emerged on the list of Finland’s 50 most viral tracks. YleX, a national radio channel part of Finnish Broadcasting Company, acclaimed the song “eery, ethereal, moody and lingering”, praising IRENE’s unique voice and original sound color.
IRENE sat down on the piano at age five and instantly felt at home in the realm of keys. She took singing lessons in secret and daydreamed of expressing herself but concentrated on Chopin and biting her tongue. She ended up a trained pianist who knew she had a voice. And the day came when she knew it was time to reclaim it.
Through various detours and after living in Paris and Amsterdam, IRENE moved back to her Nordic roots and teamed up with producer Noah Rosanes in Copenhagen. It was time to send the old piano up in flames and announce a whole new era.
IRENE's full-length debut album SLOW BLOOM releases in 2020.
