KARINA (FI)

BAREN ÅBNER KL. 15.00

The Helsinki/Berlin-based dream pop duo Karina are regarded as one of the most intriguing and well received indie acts in Finland at the moment!

Their music is a combination of soft yet grandiloquent soundscapes that surround their stripped-down, unadorned lyrics. Founded in 2014 by Karin Mäkiranta and Helmi Tikkanen, the two halves of Karina share an exceptional bond of honesty and trust.
Karina kicked off 2020s with two performances at the biggest showcase festival in Europe, the ESNS Eurosonic in Groningen, Netherlands. They will soon embark on an extensive record release tour, starting from Finland in March–April. Karina celebrates the album release with a one-off record release spectacle and their biggest headline show to date at the House of Culture in Helsinki. The release show will be designed by the creative director and designer Laura Väinölä, who is also the Art Director for Marimekko, one of Finland’s most influential fashion brands and a household name.
In 2019 Karina have played more shows than ever before — in a sold out Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, on a long spring tour across Finland, warming up for the American band Beirut in Luxembourg and, for the very first time, performing in Estonia, Norway and the UK.
