Aki-Pekka Sinikoski, WÖYH!, Dwzyrek, working in Iceland

Last week was ”something else” for me and and my Superkasi fellow Jussi Karjalainen. We had some epic moments while working in Iceland for WÖYH!’s forthcoming album. During last week I shot all the album art works, promo photos and even the music video for them. –O’boy, the Icelandic weather was quite something: rain, heavy snowstorms, and the hardest wind I have ever experienced. And YES, we still managed to shoot in all of those weather conditions.

I would definitely like to thank WÖYH!’s band members Jussi Hyyrynen (YUP) and Antti ”Hyrde” Hyyrynen (Stam1na) for their super high work ethic. They didn’t complain even when we were shooting on the shore line when it was raining iced water while the wind was blowing more than 22 meter/second and the windflaws reached 37 meter/second. In that weather there was such strong emotions in the air that probably even Joukko Turkka would have been proud of us.

We can start with the cover photos I took for the WÖYH!’s next album (Dwzyrek) and to their first single (Kamppailu merellä). The ”Hemingwayish” making of photo is taken by Jussi. More stuff coming soon, so stay tuned.

I wish you a lot of sunshine, a mug full of good coffee and a super good day!

I made the album art works for the new the Scenes album called Beige. My starting point for Beige’s art work with the concept of digital errors was a quote by David Foster Wallace: ”Pay close attention to the most tedious thing you can find (tax returns, televised golf) and. In waves. A boredom like you’ve never known will wash over you and just about kill you. Ride these out. And it’s like stepping from black and white into color.”

My First Band: Corazon is out NOW. Play it loud! Play it proud!

Corazon is totally pop but still weard enough that it has found its route straight to my heart. I’m so proud to say that I have taken photos for this wonderful album. I honestly think this is The Finnish Record of the Year.

Cheers, Aki

My First Band

My First Band

A friend of mine asked me if I have heard any good Finnish bands lately. I told her that there is one that I’m really excited about: My First Band. And now you heard that as well.

My First Band just got a record deal with Sony Music Finland and Sony Music Germany. They will be the opening band on the forthcoming Sunrise Avenue concerts in Europe – that will gather more than 100 000 people in a couple of weeks. If I would need to place a bet, my prediction is that they are the next BIG BAND from Finland.

The first single Don’t Break My Corazon hints that the band is “duran duranish new age modern talking” kind of pop but that’s not the whole picture. When you hear the whole forthcoming Corazon album you’ll find a superb combination of super artsy stuff wrapped in big, bold, and shameless pop tunes. – Briliant stuff!
