Home is a song that captures a moment of isolation. It’s like those childhood summers when you forgot which day or what time it was, and you could hide yourself from the world. “We were in the countryside when this song was written, and I started feeling like that again. It’s both soothing and agonizing at the same time”, Maaria, the singer of White Balance, says.
The video of Home is coming out soon too!
White Balance’s upcoming shows
09.11.2016 Elmun Baari, Helsinki / FI
Helsinki-based duo White Balanceoffer up their latest slice of sugar-sweet electro pop in their new single ‘Hunter’, where ‘danceable, pulsating beats meet comforting vocals and dreamy melodies’. The track has already been featured by The 405 and London In Stereo.
A beautifully affirming track about “those lonely nights when you feel like your own thoughts become your worst enemies; when you just want to sleep but your mind won’t leave you alone”, its gentle beats and soporific vocals lend ‘Hunter’ a lullaby quality, with singer Maaria Nuoranne softly repeating that “You’ve got your ghosts, but you’re never alone.”
Set to be accompanied with a video directed by close friend, Juho Länsiharju, the narrative paints a picture of four Finnish men, each one struggling with their own problems and trying to solve them; believing they are the only ones suffering without knowing that they are not alone. The video perfectly flits between scenarios – each of the men in a room bathed in a different unnaturally coloured light and fighting their own demons – in a way that brings a touching depth to the relatable lyrics.
Year 2016 is already in full speed and a lot has happened. We are pleased to announce the first releases for this year.
