Underwater Sleeping Society – The Dead Vegas

{mosimage}The band from Helsinki is aspiring to be the “indie pop band” of Finland. Will they achieve it? 

Indie pop seems to be living a golden age in Finland parallel to the heavy metal craziness. Underwater Sleeping Society, the band led by Okko Nieminen comes into scene with a fresh new CD full of good ideas. Starting from the artwork of the cover and the CD disc itself, that reminds in the design of an old vinyl disc, and continuing with their catchy bittersweet tunes, mixing happiness and sadness like in Saw You at my Funeral, the danceable Hurry or Worry or the introspective and semi-psychedelic Body Blues. A good effort by the Finnish boys that count with the support of one of the strongest record companies in Finland: Backstage Alliance.

USS will be touring quite extensively during the next couple of months in Finland, so you can have an easy chance to see their performance live. For the moment, they leave a good taste with this The Dead Vegas that surely will find a good bunch of fans easily.  

Rating 4/5.
