I suddenly wake up in a hot balloon over a valley. Down there, I see these five young guys in their woolen shirts creating a twisted collage with colorful materials and wild imagination. Mountains in the middle of the fog turn into massive walls of echoes and tunes float onwards naturally like a piece of wood in a river. I feel how the afterglow of the sun breaths in a melancholic sound of the trumpet while the shining moon reveals little details which I didn’t recognize a moment ago. Everything is somehow upside down and I can only guess what will happen next. Looks like calmness just waits for the furious storm before it’s time to start over again. I have a strong feeling this is something unique. I call this epic indie rock.
During their few years of existence, Neufvoin have toured all over the Finland and shared the stage with Disco Ensemble, Rubik and Magenta Skycode. Their two releases, Robokop EP (2009) and Fake Musket EP (2010), have been highly praised in Finnish music media and they are also appreciated in the international blogosphere, earning comparisons to Sigur Rós, Broken Social Scene and Efterklang. Right now, the New Music Community based quintet is making a big step forward while the reflection of their debut album gleams on the horizon.
