After coming through the pop music factory at Rytmus and spending some time in the band Tiny Little Shoes, Sophia Valencé Carrhage made her debut as a solo artist with the single Doubt Me, and later the EP Leaves Again this summer. On that EP, she established her style as thumping electro-pop, built around her rich, dramatic voice, and you can hear it live this weekend when she plays Dramatenbaren.

GIG: JAAKKO EINO KALEVI
Finish pop auteur Jaakko Eino Kalevi has been absent from the solo album game since 2015’s self-titled record, but now he’s finally back. He made his return in August with Emotions In Motion, a brisk, slick synth-pop track, and followed it up with People In The Centre Of The City. His new album Out Of Touch, out in October, takes themes like internet-immersement and urban fatigue and pushes them through Jaakko’s pop music via Soviet disco filter. It comes to Fasching in late November.
