VILLE PIRINEN COMBAT SCHOOL

Ville Pirinen buzzes, howls and crawls on all fours in a circle somewhere in the no-man’s-land between the traditional singer-songwriter-ness and experimental crackle. As tools he uses bass, a pile of effect pedals and human voice. Lyrics make surprisingly lot of sense, and even the riffs are sensible enough; performance and soundscape not so much. The gigs balance on a fuse tightened between extremely touching & severely awkward. File under: Loner Rock
