„Laikka’s latest album Bleach, is the latest example of the potential of their musically inventiveness. Visionary sonics and dazzling vocals combine in the masterful work, with deft production and powerful narratives flowing throughout the 13-pronged album.” (Wonderland Magazine, UK)
A gender- and genre-bending electronic pop duo also deeply rooted in the digital art world, Laikka places equal importance on their visual aesthetics and musical productions. With experimental sounds, dreamy vocals and driving electronic beats, Laikka are increasingly pushing into the international spotlight.
Founded at the beginning of 2020, Laikka deal intensely and unflinchingly with the big topics and trends of our time – musically, lyrically and visually. Their music is characterised by a deep, melancholic look inwards, strong emotions, the feeling of loneliness or diffuse fears in the digital age, often juxtaposed with their own big dreams. Coincidentally, the band’s name is reminiscent of the first creature to make space history – and yet is somehow also programmatic.
After successful singles that received airplay on numerous European radio stations, Laikka unveiled their album debut, the much-acclaimed electronic pop gem „Morning Glow,“ in the fall of 2021. Compelling and fascinating how the duo thereby mixes dreamy pop, experimental electronics and dark techno into a unity. followed by a techno-concept EP called „Red“, on which they pursued their preference for contemporary club culture. Summer 2023 saw the release of „Bleach“, their energetic second studio album, on which Laikka once again impressively underlined why they are one of the most exciting and innovative bands and live acts in the country.
A new single „Echo“ is the first prelude to the third Laikka album, which will be released in early summer 2024.
