The Scenes 2014

THE SCENES are an experimental outfit from Oulu, Finland, that plays something between art pop, hardcore punk and progressive rock. They possess a seemingly peculiar collective character yet it’s impossible to deny their powerful songwriting and showmanship mastery. Although THE SCENES would describe their sound simply as ‘rock’, the oblique song structures, angular rhythms and contorted lyrics allow for only absurdist comparisons to reveal anything about their style. We somehow think of SEX PISTOLS playing ERIK SATIE, or MARS VOLTA doing THE HIVES. After their debut album Images Of Animals Crying In Public was released in April 2013, the band’s second album Beige comes out on October 27th on the Sound of Finland imprint.

Now NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION premieres THE SCENES‘ new video City of White Blankets, taken from Beige. Enjoy!
