BIOGRAPHY

A gender- and genre-bending electronic pop duo also deeply rooted in the digital art world, Laikka place equal importance on their musical productions as they do on their visual aesthetic. 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 intensively with the big issues 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.

 After a handful of successful singles played on numerous European radio stations, Laikka presented their album debut “Morning Glow” in autumn 2021, a much-acclaimed electronic pop gem, 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.

“Their 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).

The third Laikka album will be released in early summer 2024.
