Okay, so I know that I said this week I would be sharing some songs from artists that blew me away this past weekend at NXNE. But for today, I am straying and when you listen to these songs, you’ll understand why. I couldn’t pick just one, so here’s the two for one special.
They’re called Villa Nah, and they are from Helsinki, Finland. The first time you listen to these songs, don’t be surprised if no matter where you are – at work, on the subway, on the treadmill – you, for a moment, close your eyes and let the music wash over you like sun-soaked waves of rhapsody. The duo says their influences are drawn from childhood; from the late 70s and early 80s when they were babies. There was so much great music then, and even though Villa Nah’s music is a freshly squeezed delight, it is spiked with nostalgia for this era. NME says that Villa Nah is “reigniting electro pop’s romantic flame.” I sure feel the love, do you?
