Forget life’s disappointments, and join the circus! This is the advice from Finland’s convention-defying duo – The Impersonators.
Opposing their rock band past, they channel ‘the bejeweled power pop of The Go-Betweens, the effortless songwriting genius of Matthew Sweet and the immediacy and worldliness of early R.E.M. to deliver timeless alt-pop melodies’.
For The Impersonators, the magic comes in the studio – hence their avoidance of touring or live performances. Of course, how could just two men play all of those instruments at once?! Their music aims to avoid clichés, and instead focus on the gritty truths of real life.
