An experimental band barely out of their teens, The Scenes are from Oulu, Northern Finland and are a band that represent something between art pop, hardcore punk and progressive rock. Although they themselves would describe their sound simply as ‘rock’, the oblique song structures, angular rhythms and contorted lyrics, combined with their powerful showmanship mastery makes for something altogether more special.
No strangers to the live circuit, in May 2014 The Scenes toured the UK earning a reputation for their lights-out mayhem live performances, playing festival slots at The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Live At Leeds and Dot to Dot, as well as supporting Bo Ningen on their club tour. Their sets are characterised by neurotic bursts - serene then suddenly lively to the point where it’s almost certain that something will break - be it equipment or bones.
After their debut album “Images Of Animals Crying In Public” in 2013, second album ‘Beige’ will come out in October, on the Sound of Finland imprint.
