Karoshi Lovers


With their first album „Revolution Is Over“ the Karoshi Lovers from Helsinki/FIN rocketed themselves from zero to one of the most appreciated acts of the Finnish indie-scene.

With their first album „Revolution Is Over“ the Karoshi Lovers from Helsinki/FIN rocketed themselves from zero to one of the most appreciated acts of the Finnish indie-scene. A threepiece performing in a quite unusual line-up (drums, piano, guitar), fronted by female singer/pianoplayer Ms Stress, managed already then to combine catchy pop-melodies with a remarkable dark element and a theatrical stage-appearance. An apparent thing has been from the very beginning their flirting with the term "Karoshi" - Japanese for "sudden death from overwork". Not to surprising to find a coverversion of the Godfather's „Birth School Work Death“.

And a great one if we may say so. For their second album „Death Pop“ they sharpened their sound by adding more of the rocking elements that so far were mostly a trademark of their live-shows. A smart move. The songs on „Death Pop“ are a simply brillant blend of hard rocking guitars, bubblegum melodies, gloomy atmosphere and dancable beats, held together by singer Ms Stress' vocal presence. There is not to many bands this can be compared with.

One might find elements of early Blondie or some bits of PJ Harvey all accompanied by a touch of 80s pop in there but at the end of the day it's an all original thing this nordic pop-outfit delivers.
