Finnish newcomers Pastel Stereø are stepping into the alternative scene with their new single “Disappear,” a genre-fluid showstopper that captures the uncertainties we face when we go through change. Influenced by singer Eemeli’s own experiences moving from Northern Finland to Helsinki when he was 16, “Disappear” is a smoothly-burning jam where the band meditate on the past as the new starts replacing the old. It’s a slick anthem that buoys you with a bittersweet euphoria:
In their own words, the track is about “change and having to leave things behind. It’s about the sacrifices made when chasing a dream, moving far away from home and the scary realisation of your old friends becoming a distant part of your memory.”
Comprised of singer Eemeli, guitarist Mikael, bassist Leo, and drummer Jimi, Pastel Stereø caught the attention of producer and songwriter Colin Brittain (5SOS, All Time Low, Avicci) with their demos. The band flew to LA to hone their sound along with the help of Colin and other writers including Chris Greatti (Poppy, Yungluds) and Elijah Noll (American Teeth). Keep them under your radar for more music from the band this year.
