In our ever bustling, busy and overwhelming lives, it’s often the quiet, minimalist moments that gives us a sense of calm and sure perspective. In this regard the debut album from STINAKO, Ikussuus, is the perfect escape - a place to reflect and draw breath from the daily hurly burly. With universal themes of loneliness, otherness, leading a hermit life whilst celebrating the beauty of life and nature - Ikussuus revels in a natural honesty that puts voice and song - combined with spare instrumentation - first and foremost. STINAKO is the alter-ego of Stina Koistinen, celebrated songwriter and performer with the Helsinki based duo Color Dolor. Ikussuus shows us a new raw and uncompromising side to Stina’s music - aesthetically she has never sounded this stripped back or this vulnerable. Ikussuus is an almost complete solo expression, all songs written and all instruments and voices performed by Stina. The album was produced by Stina and Joonas Saikkonen, who also engineered and mixed the record. Linda Fredriksson brings saxophone to ‘Kohtaaminen’ while Joonas Saikkonen plays guitar on ‘Kuu Nousaee Tänäkin Yönä’
