Even though guitar bands are not necessarily the most sought after thing at the moment, Pimeys have elbowed their way into the limelight with their determination and vision. Founded in 2011, the band gained critical acclaim with their debut album Muut on jo menneet, and this year’s sophomore album Silkkitie turned out to be a hit which conjoined an immaculate musical vision with sublime material. Alternating singers Pekka Nisu and Joel Mäkinen are also responsible of composing their songs. Pimeys are familiar with the tradition of Finnish rock music but instead of living in the past their music features an increasing amount of influences from more contemporary rock artists. You should definitely look more into this band if you’re not already familiar with their music.
