Penance and Passion (2011)
- Digitally released on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon



The February Stars, based in Finland, brings a sound to the indie rock scene that is a mixture of old schools synthesizers and tape echoes and the modern pop groove of today.

Vocals, harmonies, dynamics and arrangements are the keywords when they create their music which can be heard, not least, on the album Penance and Passion that the band digitally released during June of 2011.

When recording the band as well as producer Jan Hyƶty wanted to create a true-to-life sounding album and did not record anything they couldn't repeat live using only their voices and instruments.

"I can image their songs sounding great live because they have a very full sound, with vocals that can keep up. They also are not afraid to to go slower, and be bold at the same time. They really do have a fresh interpretation on the music scene. I could see this band making more than a splash in the larger picture. "
- Paul Ruth, The Independent Music Scene

The bands music varies from explosive almost post-punkish songs to more ambient soft tunes. Keeping this array of styles as one package is a challenge but The February Stars have always written the sort of songs they want to play. And regardless of the style of a specific song you can always hear The February Stars feel in the arrangements and harmonies.
