Soul Tattoo – Malaga

{mosimage}Indie band Soul Tattoo brings some sunlight into the Finnish souls with their new and fresh album.

With not many resources but a lot of illusion and skills, Malaga is one of the nicest surprises in the Finnish music scene during the first months of 2008. Mixing rock, pop and blues, with a certain dark touch, the music works and hits you from the first time you listen to the album. The band of Samuli Laiho and J. Sydänmäki has achieved a rounded work with anthems like Feather Girl or Magic Hat. For some moments the vocal skills remind me of a young Bono like in Let the Light In.

Soul Tattoo shows that indie scene in Finland is healthy, and there is more to explore than just heavy metal.  I am looking forward to seeing them on stage, to check if they sound as good on live as in this outstanding album. A must have for lovers of good music and new experiences.

Rating 5/5.
