His album isn’t even out yet, and already Jaakko Eino Kalevi finds himself riding along on a big, puffy cloud made of critical acclaim and love from his fans. With his latest release ‘Hush Down’, we have yet another mouthwatering teaser for his self-titled debut album, due for release on June 15th.
The song charms with a funky scaffolding of beats and snazzy synth pop interludes, feeding off the musical influences from the 70s and 80s and creating a genre mix nobody has considered of putting into the musical baking mould before. Or have you ever expected to hear a song which will remind you of both Boney M. and Kraftwerk at the same time? It sounds like it shouldn’t, but somehow Jaakko’s genre mixology just works. Hear for yourself below!
