Sin Cos Tan
Synth-pop duo Sin Cos Tan have three albums, a host of packed-out festival appearances and a big dose of musical experience. From their self-titled debut album in 2012 onwards, Juho Paalosmaa and Jori Hulkkonen have established a classic partnership within the duo-format and songwriting.

Death Hawks is a timeless band. Its references, or at least the most obvious ones, come from a variety of sources from the blues to psychedelia, and early heavy metal to krautrock. They have released two albums, Death & Decay and Death Hawks.
