Villa Nah – Running On / Ways To Be

NAME: Villa Nah
SINGLE: Running On / Ways To Be
YEAR: 2010 (May 10th)
LABEL: Moshi Moshi
RATING: 4/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: Sincere and elegant electro pop.

LOCATION: Helsinki, Finland

LINE UP: Juho Paalosmaa (vocals) / Tomi Hyyppä (drums & synthesizers )

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Both tracks on this single ooze depth and sophistication. The Finnish duo have captured a sound that brings electro ballads firmly back into the lime-light. ‘Running On’ is exceptional in its aural sound-scape. Chillingly crisp piano and vocals collude to bring about both tragic and invigorating emotions. ‘Ways To Be’ on the other hand instantly makes their influences clear. This could easily have been an album track on Gary Newman’s ‘The Pleasure Principle’, so pronounced is the synth-pop influence. If nothing else, let this pay testament to their ability in their craft.

SOUNDS LIKE: Gary Newman, Krafwerk, Aeroplane, Joe and Will Ask.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: Heart-string tugging synth ballads, coffee table friendly electro-pop, Royksopp .
