The long-awaited 1st 7" EP is released from VOX POPULI! !!
SOLPAATOS HAD A LOVING SOUND OF FINNIISH RAW PUNK WITH A STRONG INFLUENCE FROM 80'S FINNISH HARDCORE PUNK, BUT THIS NEWLY FORMED VANSUUT IS MORE INCLINED TOWARDS 70s/80S FINNISH PUNK ROCK FROM HARDCORE TO PUNK ROCK! The shock of witnessing VANSUUT's first live performance in Tokyo last October is still fresh in my memory, but I was looking forward to the long-awaited new sound source! !! That song that was shibi live! !! I wonder if they will bite the first song after all! !! Yabaize!! I'll do it with a famous song confirmed tune that is sure to make you feel hot from the start! !! The roughness of the demo was good, but this official 1st EP, which shows further growth, is full of impulse, blueness and stubbornness to record, and this is one of the hearts of the meeting that can be said to be the 1st EP! !! FINISH PUNK ROCK sounds full of love with solid squeaking guitars, beats full of momentum and speed, melancholy melodies that are blueish and hot! !! Even if you don't understand the lyrics, you will want to hum it, which is a proof of a famous song! !! The urge to stomp, bounce, and thrust up involuntarily! Punk rock!! This is it!! All four songs are the best without throwing away songs! !! It is a masterpiece that you will want to repeat again and again! !! RATSIA, KOLLAA KESTAA, LOOSE PRICK, VAAVI, KARANTEENI, ETC. ARE STRONGLY INFLUENCED BY FINISH PUNK ROCK, AND THE SOUND IS PURE AND SIMPLE AND MELANCHOLY PUNK ROCK MIXED WITH THE BLOOD OF JAPANESE PUNK ROCK THAT FLOWS TO THEM! !! When we were able to talk a little bit live, I was happy that not only my love for Finland but also the punk essence of Japan was not wrong. The interview with EL ZINE VOL.58 also mentions the name of BLUE HERATS, and if you listen to it based on that, you can feel the essence of the early Blue Hearts! !! Maybe if I sang this in Japanese, it would be Blue Hearts .... Due to the deadline of the manuscript, I couldn't list it as one of EL ZINE's recommendations this year, but if I was in time, I would definitely put it in! !! The atmosphere of the jacket is also good! !! A must-listen for punk rock fans!! Finland meets Japan!! NIIGATA FINNISH PUNK ROCK!!
* As I mentioned in the comments, an interview with EL ZINE VOL.58 is also posted! !!
In 2020, a new PUNK ROCK BAND was born in Niigata. ITS NAME IS VÄNSUT. "Niigata", "dots on A"... If you have a good intuition, PUNKS will have a verse that comes to mind. Right! TWO MEMBERS OF SOLPÄÄTOS STARTED A NEW PUNK BAND. IT IS SIMILAR TO SOLPÄÄTOS IN THAT TAKAHIRO, A FINNISH PUNK FANATIC, TAKES THE HELM, ACTS AS GUITAR VOCALIST, AND PLAYS FINNISH PUNK. SOLPÄÄTOS IS AN 80'S PUNK/HARDCORE STYLE SUCH AS APPENDNX AND POHJASAKKA, WHILE VÄNSUT IS A 70'S PUNK STYLE SUCH AS RATSIA AND VAAVI. THESE TWO SIMILAR STYLES DIFFERENTIATE VÄNSUUT FROM SOLPÄÄTOS!
There is no doubt that the influence of FINNISH PUNK is great, but while they do not crack down the band they respect, they also feel the "innocence" that is FINNISH PUNK's personal charm PURE PUNK ROCK BAND as of 2022 via RAW HARDCORE PUNK.
Is it a coincidence? Is it Finnish consciousness? Is it romantic? 1st EP released at Christmas!
Drag down the old Santa, who is tied to the products of the past! !!
