Tomi and Vera in Tapiola


Haukilahti water tower (1968), designed by Erkko Virkkunen & Ilmari Hyppänen.

Since November is a Helsinki based indie pop band. 

It is 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 is called Star System. It is a song about inability to perceive and reach one another.

The next single and a music video for it (directed by Paola Suhonen / IvanaHelsinki) is already on the way. We hope we can get it done as soon as possible.

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.
