"I mørke, tunge skyer er det ofte mye innhold"

Finlands Hi-Horse er en powertrio selv om det påstås at de kun består av Jani Kämppi (git/vok) og Karin Creutz (bass/vok). Men for å si det slik; dette bandet hadde ikke hatt allverdens å bidra med om ikke det hadde vært for trommis Pexi Parviainen. Og i studio er det jobbet frem et mer vidstrakt lydbilde med effektmaker Jon Fullers mange involveringer.

Dette bandet gaper generelt over for mye. ”Concrete Clouds” blandes av mange rocka stilarter, og den ofte har problemer med å kombinere gotiske inspirasjoner med harmonisk pop/rock, det mørke med det lyse, om du vil. Det blir en for rastløs miks av tungrodd, flerrende bassgitarspill og døsige gitarriff.

Det finnes partier på albumet der det går så mye bedre. Devil In Disguise er en frodig, dog seigtflytende duett, og singelen Ma Chanson er en utmerket sak der Creutz gjør refrengene på forfriskende fransk. Avslutningen Other Floors er likeså, catchy vers, velskapte hooks og klagende gitarer som bæres oppe av et driv det faktisk gnistrer litt fra.

I all hovedsak blir platen for mye av det gode, hektisk og floket. Der Smashing Pumpkins og Placebo er vitale lyder Hi-Horse mer som et noe overmodig alternativ til Helsinki-naboene sine i HIM.

Bio

The 2007 founded Helsinki-based rock duo Hi-Horse creates its own road trip with steady hoofs! The colourful sound world of the talented duo is painted by basist-vocalist Karin Creutz and guitarist-vocalist Jani Kämppi. The duo gets completed by skillful drummer Pexi Parviainen.

Respecting the musical legacies but following new twisted paths and doing their very own thing, this bronco moves its audiences into a world of cartoons. The magical straws in this stack consist psychedelic yet ambient, sexy pop rock melodies with the brilliant symbiosis of the outstanding harmonies of Karin’s and Jani’s vocals.

The sound of this open minded duo reflects the spectra of different spheres: a powerful train, loaded with distortion, is roaring through vibrant soundscapes. The musical journey of Hi-Horse starts from the unexplored forests of Finland through every landing-place imaginable, stopping by different styles and eras, to pay tribute to the pioneers and legends of lifethirsty storytelling. Though the destination of this journey is unknown…

Hi-Horse has released two sold out EP´s (Straight From The Mouth in 2008 and Devil In Disguise in 2009) and with over 50 gigs under their belt, the band rocks any audience with their joyful performance and is hungry for more. The debut album Concrete Clouds will be released on October 13th by Terra Recordings/Playground Music in Scandinavia. Concrete Clouds is a shimmering pearl full of stories, melodies and energy including guest appearances by Finnish blues wizard Esa Kuloniemi (Honey B And The T-Bones), multi-talented Jon Fuller (Helmet) and Italian violin virtuoso Chiara Pierobon.

Put your chaps on and join this hell of a ride!
