Returning with a sonic masterpiece that showcases the duo's remarkable production prowess, is Finish duo Pihka Is My Name. This synth-driven composition seamlessly marries disco and drum and bass influences, resulting in a track that's a playground of intricate soundscapes.
Henna Helasvuo, the talented composer-pianist, and Lasse Turunen, the skilled producer-sound designer, form a dynamic musical partnership that shines through in every beat and note. Their fusion of analog synthesizers, mesmerizing piano motifs, and textured drum machines creates a sonic tapestry that's both immersive and electrifying.
"Exponential Potential" serves as a testament to their love for DIY synth sound design. The track's inspiration from Zelda games, particularly the piano themes by Manaka Kataoka in "Breath of the Wild," is evident in its organic piano hook. The use of an acoustic piano adds a unique warmth and authenticity to the electronic composition.
With this single, Pihka Is My Name teases the potential for innovation and creativity in their upcoming second full-length album, "Caller Unknown." Beyond the studio, their live performances are a testament to their production finesse, offering audiences a visual and auditory feast.
