Biography

"Fantastic record" It's a Trap

"White Mountain is an incredibly successful invention. Kiki Pau have branched out and created a scrapbook of their influences, slotting them together to construct White Mountains, seemingly Finland’s best kept secret." The 405 (UK)

"While listening to this album, I have a vivid image in my head of a time where I was not even present… now that’s music. There isn’t a lot of music that I hear today that sounds anything like this." The Painted Man (US)

"This could be any band from the American mid-south. Well, not quite any band as most wouldn’t end up sounding as good as this. This is good, rollicking rock ‘n’ roll." Another Form of Relief (UK)

"Helsinki indie rock group Kiki Pau is a top talked-about artist of the moment." The Independent (UK)

"The Anglo-American musical heritage is still an important part of their output and this time they expand on their expression....This is just an excellent second effort." All Scandinavian (DK)

"An "Old Song" has been floating around for a little bit now and it's a good stompy tune that's crossed the Atlantic now and is destined to sweep across the country on a ray of spring sunshine." The Pop Stereo (US)

"Reminds me of Okkervil.. in a good way!" T s u r u r a d i o

"Kiki Pau return with a fantastic sophomore album." Glue (FIN)

"Kiki Pau may be my favourite unknown discovery of this year." To Die By Your Side (UK)

"Leur premier album mérite d'être entendu audelà des frontières finlandaises pour sa capacité à apporter un rayon de soleil sonore dans votre journée" Mixte (FRA)

"Kiki Pau hail from Helsinki and bridge the gap between the oddball pop of The Spinto Band and the wonkier side of Pavement." Fandango (UK)

"Kiki Pau får mig att vilja dansa på vardagsrumsgolvet på en hemmafest, spilla rödvin i soffan och hångla med värdinnan." Pandamagazine (SWE)

“It is a supremely refreshing record. The band’s party-friendly rock draws from wellsprings as deep as rockabilly and New York punk.� SixDegrees (FIN)

"If good things come to those who want to bring good to others, then there's a bright future for this group" FMQ
