Watch: “What Your Are”
Another great cut from Come hear.Finland., the Finnish Moosic 2006 promotional CD distributed at “MIDEM, The World Music Market’s 40th Edition,” is the rock band Bleak. “Play,” from their CD Burns Inside, showcases a very tight, accomplished band that defies the “debut album” status: they sound like they’re tried and true, and anything but bleak.
Bleak’s first single, “What You Are,” went straight to #2 on the Finnish Charts, so take this as a nudge to investigate this band. You can listen to six cuts on Burns Inside on their site, which I suggest that you do. In fact, you can also watch a video of Bleak, the link is above, and on their myspace site, www.myspace.com/bleakmusic . Bleak and their indie label, The Helinski Music Company, produced a visually interesting, professional-looking video that really fits their music.
What do I like about Bleak? Their lead vocals, their songwriting, their sound, their production, their video, their look ... another Finnish band that has a home on my CD player. Bleak is ready for the rest of the world to hear and see!
The Come hear.Finland promotional CD is a partnership between MOKIA Nseries, Contra, d:centia, and Kuuko, with support from the Finnish Ministries of Trade and Industry, Education, Foreign Affairs, and the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Finnish Performing Music Promotion Centre ESEK, and the Foundation for the Promotion of Finnish Music Luses. I obtained a copy at the Finnish Music Information Centre FIMIC booth.
