Live Pictures session videos

Last winter, we were processing the thick, empty feeling caused by the postponement of our album release tour. We ended up loading our live gear into a black-walled room for a weekend and recorded a couple of takes just before our album release show was streamed. Here are the three live videos from the session – ‘Picture of a Good Life, ‘Island’ and ‘Wild Birds’. 

Ps. Thanks everyone at sold-out Telakka / Lost In Music last weekend. Plenty of tickets still left for our this week’s Helsinki show: https://bit.ly/3A2OmcU

Jussi Hietala joins NEØV live band

We’re stunned to share the news that Jussi Hietala will be joining NEØV for the live shows. The story goes that we met Jussi at our first ever live show when he was in the headlining band, and over the years we became close friends both musically and otherwise. It’s super exciting to have such an inspiring musician and person on board. On top of that, we’ve learnt a lot from Jussi – and can’t wait to learn more. 

Jussi also makes his own music under the name J.Tala, and his musical history comprises acts such as Underwater Sleeping Society, Rubik and Pariisin Kevät – so his devoted live presence might be familiar to our followers around the world. 

Watch our special Live Pictures show on March 13 (live stream) & see you at the venues as soon as possible.

Recording a new album in Hamburg

We are recording a new album at Clouds Hill in Hamburg. For us, this is as exhilarating as our first holiday trip to Greece in the 1990’s, but without the unfortunate necessity of leaving our back-then gear of a cherry red Tama drum set and a pastel green Stratocaster back home – or at least this feels like something pretty close to that. We are excited to work with Sebastian Muxfeldt, who knows one thing and another of how to get our ideas on tape, since he has worked with artists like Elbow, Albert Hammond Jr. and Teenage Fanclub. And what a studio this is. Feeling happy, lucky and inspired!

No end without a beginning

NEOV-1992.jpg

We’re informing you that Ari is no longer part of NEØV. For past twelve years, there have been a deep friendship and a musical connection between us three, which has made these years wonderful, meaningful, fun, and, on the other hand, intense and comprehensive. We’re going to remain as friends with no hard feelings.

We’re grateful to Ari for owing so much of his time for the band. Ari is now looking for new challenges in his life, and wants to send warm thanks to everyone for the support throughout the years.

There’s no end without a beginning: the next chapter in NEØV’s story will now be written. Anssi and Samuli will continue making music together, and are going to record the next NEØV album at Clouds Hill in Hamburg next month. NEØV will continue touring with a new live lineup that will be announced later.
