Tomi and Espoo
Since November is a Helsinki based indie pop band. It's been a solo project of Tomi Mäkilä, who earlier played in bands like The Crash, Magenta Skycode and Montevideo. Tomi has been working on a space theme for quite some years already, struggling to find and gather the escaping shards together. 

Now, with the help of Jukka-Pekka Flander (drums & rhythm programming), the ensemble is taking its form. 

The first single, Star System, was released in 2017. It is a song about inability to perceive and reach one another.

The 2nd single, First Final Frontier, and a music video for it (directed by Paola Suhonen / IvanaHelsinki) was released on 1st of Feb 2019. 

The band has started to work on the 3rd single. It's going to be called Airplane Astronaut. As the title suggests, it's about a right man in the wrong place. 

Stay tuned for more space stories!

Maybe the two Fading Stars are just alienating lovers, Lift Offs might cause (or be the consequence of) resignation when Landings give you short-term comfort and may sound temporarily quite warm and secure. Space is the best word to describe loneliness.
