All Scandinavian

Review on All Scandinavian:

Not knowing better it would be easy to place quartet Kiki Pau in Great Britain. They are, however, Finnish - and probably good at it. As they are good at creating guitar based indierock with impeccable pop qualities and a minor feeling.

Following a trilogy of self-released EP’s they recently released this full length debut, and apart from the album title (just one “Yeah!” away from being all bad) and the lame boogie blues intro to album opener ‘Pit Bull’ (my immediate reaction: “You’ve got to be kidding!?”) it is grand.

Sounding like Dirty Pretty Things’ prettier cousins they build on the heritage of legendary The Smiths throwing in bits of contemporary British acts like the scrawny guitars of Franz Ferdinand and the melodic aptitude of Razorlight. “Build” is the keyword, because although the references are clear the Fins have put their very own spin on the whole thing, thus becoming more than mere copycats.

With ‘Let’s Rock’ and its string of good poprock songs coated in a suitably scruffy production Kiki Pau have made an album you’ll find yourself return to whether you’re in dancing mode or the exact opposite.

Kiki Pau - Let's Rock
9/10

"Kiki Pau are an elusive beast. I hear elements of "London calling"-era Clash, especially the appreciation of old-school ska and reggae, and the Kooks' songwriting in "Bobby Marley"; rockabilly and indie frameworks ensnarl themselves around angular, playful guitar work akin to that of Franz Ferdinand in "Your bedroom"; the opening of "Poses" reminds me of The Smiths' "Rusholme ruffians", only to evoke much more contemporary British references in the verse and chorus; the break in "Chronic puberty" pays skillful homage to the Beach Boys; and "Berlin" brings to mind Razorlight and Longwave. Pair this ability to freely, mischievously wheel all through the indie rock (80s, 90s, and contemporary), swing, and rockabilly genres (just to name a few) with strong, clever vocals, references to Steinbeck (in a song titled "Bukowski"), and you have a fantastic record that's made all the stronger by its complicated relationship with both melancholy and summery pop, seemingly unable to deal with one without the other.
- Lars Garvey Laing-Peterson"

"Leur premier album mérite d'être entendu audelà des frontières finlandaises pour sa capacité à apporter un rayon de soleil sonore dans votre journée"

"Kiki Pau on yksi Suomen tämän hetken kuumimpia indiepop-tulokkaita. Joka kuuntelulla kasvava albumi on ehdottomasti yksi vuoden parhaita omassa genressään Suomessa vuonna 2008. Kiki Paun debyyttialbumia voi helposti verrata esim. Vampire Weekend -yhtyeen debyyttiin." -Stupido

Bandcamping

We're back from the "bandcamp". This years camp was held in a secret location where no man has ever been before. Idea was to create new songs but in the end we just found our selves playing psychedelic noise. It feels weird now to be back in the city after spending a week in the forest.. But don't worry. We're fine, actually more than just fine. "Let's Rock" will hit the stores in September!!

We'll start working on video for the next single soon. It will be presented here as soon as it's ready.

Meanwhile you can enjoy some footage from the camp....

A BUNCH OF CUNTZ (STUDIO SESSIONS VOL 1)


First recording session took place in Mango studios. 10 days of music, eating bad food, playing football, coming up with conspiracy theories and having a good time. We are currently doing some overdubbing back in Helsinki with Nick Triani. Some video footage will be presented here later... If everything goes well the album will be ready in September. Probably with 10 to 12 songs or something. It's gonna be grrrrrreeeat!















Check out the latest Mixte magazine. There is some stuff about Helsinki music scene (which is not a big scene) with some great Helsinki acts. I haven't even seen the mag yet so I don't know how it looks like or if there even is anything abour Kiki Pau. Anyway it's a good mag so check it out!

Have a nice weekend.
