Plain Fade


Plain Fade is a Finnish band whose music combines a trademark Northern European sense of melancholy with urban feeling of detachment. The band, founded in 1997 in Tampere, Finland, evokes a strong sense of drama in their compositions, using their trademark intuitive way of making music to create their uncompromising dynamic soundscapes. The music presents the listener with a rich world of sharp contrasts, where slow dynamic build-ups erupt into majestic chaos, letting delicate melodies collide with bombastic codas.

Plain Fade is a Finnish band whose music combines a trademark Northern European sense of melancholy with urban feeling of detachment. The band, founded in 1997 in Tampere, Finland, evokes a strong sense of drama in their compositions, using their trademark intuitive way of making music to create their uncompromising dynamic soundscapes. The music presents the listener with a rich world of sharp contrasts, where slow dynamic build-ups erupt into majestic chaos, letting delicate melodies collide with bombastic codas. In addition to using traditional rock band instruments like guitars, drums and keyboards, the band also utilises a variety of other instruments such as cellos, harp and samplers.

The musicians are constantly seeking to create new moods and atmospheres with their expression. Plain Fade’s music in 2010 is a mixture of colossal melodies, pompous grandeur, delicate minimalism, Slavic sense of melancholy and North European nature. Influences range from ambient to hc punk rock and from medieval to minimalism. After the 2003-single “Datura”, Punos Sound released Plain Fade’s first full-length album, “Lies, Sanctions and Cruise Missiles” in March 2005. The album won huge critical acclaim and the band did various shows with some respected alternative music acts (such as Cult of Luna (SWE), Pedigree (EST), Callisto, Magyar Posse, Kuusumun Profeetta. Improvisation-based, more experimental second album, “Aure”, was released in November 2006. After some hiatus in 2007-2008, the band returned in 2009 with so-far-the-most-megalomaniac project: Anthropogonia is a piece that features a collaboration with the Helsinki-based choir WiOL.

The band did two concerts with this 50-voice mixed choir in Helsinki (Nosturi and Stoa the Cultural Centre of Eastern Helsinki) in November 2009. Anthropogonia – Plain Fade with WiOL album will be released through Verdura Records in autumn 2010. The music of the Anthropogonia-album is arranged for the choir by Juho Koivuaho and Jussi Lehtinen. The text – Anthropogonia – the genesis of the new humanity – is written in Ancient Greek by Ilmari Kavén. The choir is conducted by Jutta Seppinen.
