"The February Stars"

The February Stars are a rock band with a real new wave feel. They are from Pohjanmaa Finland. 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. The fans can tell they are a hard working band.

Songs I like are "British Inventions," and "My Heart In Your Hands." -


Penance & Passion (2009)



In 2005 Simon picked up the song writing he had left behind him a few years earlier. He played the songs he had written for some of his friends who encouraged him to continue writing. As he felt somewhat lonely as a singer/songwriter he started to scout for a band. The first, and most natural, choice was his old friend Martin who he had played with before in different constellations. Simon, formerly being a drummer had some difficulties finding a drummer for the new band. Walking home one night after being refused from the theatres ticket office he walked past a house in the centre of Vasa from where he heard some good rhythms.
It turned out Toni was renting a rehearsal local and was practicing at just that moment. With some hesitation Simon knocked at the door, introduced himself and found that he had encountered a drummer of his taste. A few nights later Toni played a gig with a band called Pulu at a club in town. After the show Simon was convinced and invited Toni into the band.
Due to geographical issues Simon and Matias hadn't spoken in years, but they had know each other since they were about ten years old. In the fall of 2005 Matias moved up to Vasa to study. Simon then first met Matias in a queue to one of the local bars and asked him if would be interested in playing the bass in a new band. After that The February Stars was formed.
Late 2007 Simon's brother Daniel joined the band playing keyboards and piano bringing a new edge and more depth to the bands sound. In the spring of 2008 The February Stars teamed up with producer/engineer Anders Höglund at Midas Studios and recorded four new songs.
During the spring of 2009 The February Stars recorded their first full-lenght CD. Join our facebook group for updated info.
