Finnish psych-pop dreamboat Jaakko Eino Kalevi drives his Helsinki tram to De Nieuwe Anita, Amsterdam. Picked up by Domino imprint Weird World, Jaakko’s debut Dreamzone EP is out now.
Moonlighting as a tram driver for Helsinki City Transport, Finnish dreamboat Jaakko Eino Kalevi has been a cult hero in the city he’s called home since 2006. Drawing from the meditative clamor of his tram as it chugs along those Nordic tracks at the crack of dawn, Jaakko’s soothing psychedelic pop mimics a blissful morning stupor, one soundtracked by a sultry sax, colourful synths and a dubby groove. Well-versed in pop oddities – Peaking Lights, How To Dress Well and Salvia Plath to name but a few – Domino subsidiary Weird World have snapped the multi-instrumentalist Finn for his four song DreamzoneEP, out this December.
