Leave a Comment – View’s long awaited debut album Out Now!


View - Leave a Comment cover artView, AKA 25 year old Juuso Ruohonen, proffers a confessional, confident debut album, ‘Leave A Comment’, out today via VILD Recordings.

Following the release of the hard-hitting, ‘Trippin’ Sober’, and softer, more intimate gems ‘Deeper (Bitch Leave a Comment)’ and ‘Say It Again’ which are centered around laid-back vocals by Ronya and Kasmir, View’s debut LP demonstrates the multi-talented artist’s ability to switch up his sound to capture a spectrum of genre and mood. Grime, hip-hop, ballads, dub step; it’s all present and crafted so exquisitely that it triumphs at every hurdle.

In conjunction with the release of ‘Leave A Comment’, a 3-part music video will be released promoting album highlights ‘Do It Again’, ‘Burn Slow’ and ‘Bad Habits’.

View will embark on a 10-date tour across Germany, Australia and Switzerland in February, beginning at One of a Million Festival in Baden, completing dates at Milla in Munich and YUCA in Cologne, before finalizing the tour in Vienna.

With a powerful debut effort under his belt, 2018 looks set to be the year for the breakout Finnish rapper.

Phantom’s first introduction was the beautiful single ‘Scars’, the video for which has now amassed over 175,000 views on Youtube. Their success has continued to blossom since then, leading to them performing at a variety of festivals around Europe, including Flow Festival in their native Finland and Ireland’s Electric Picnic. Their single ‘Kisses’ only furthered the outfit’s reputation, earning the respect of The xx, as well as that of Edith Bowman, who featured the track as the “Blogger’s Choice” on her BBC Radio 1 Review show, saying it made her feel like she’d been “hugged by the sky”.
