Villa Nah, a duo of Juho Paalosmaa and Tomi HyyppÃƒÂ¤, makes pure electronic pop with plenty of emphasis on catchy melodies and meticulously crafted soundscapes reminiscent of the 1980's.
Stylewise, Villa Nah is related to 80's bands like Heaven 17 or New Order, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Once you've heard their debut single, you'll know that Villa Nah is about nothing else but their own style and sound.
The single opener "Ways To Be" is built around a synth bassline, handclaps and the kind of irresistible melody that you can't shake out of your head once you've heard it. "Envelope" is a tad more dark with an uplifting synth melody serving as a hook. "Daytime", in contrast to it's title, evokes a strong sense of night time.
Villa Nah's vocalist Juho Paalosmaa is a very charismatic performer, whose great sense of stage drama brings to mind a young Glenn Gregory or Philip Oakey. Indeed, Villa Nah is not merely a production duo but an actual band with a live show that is not to be missed.
