Flannelmouth – Forgotten Tapes
Flannelmouth have adorned the Helsinki music scene for some time now with pretty, elegant indie pop as their two outstanding albums testify. Finally back with the first taste of a new album, the band is embracing a more straightforward, guitar-driven sound, leaving behind the extended sound palette of previous recordings. With a catchy chorus, Forgotten Tapes is pretty rocking song but Tuomo Kuusi’s vocals retain their charismatic melancholy to keep the band’s self-imposed label of optimistic drep-pop.
Flannelmouth’s third album is set to be out later in the autumn.
Check out the video directed by Finn Andersson and see the lonely vocalist singing to old tape recorder.
