FINNISH INDIE POP ARTIST JUTTA RAHMEL RELEASES NEW SINGLE GHOST
New song and debut music video out now
Nordic indie pop newcomer Jutta Rahmel has released her third single on 11 September 2020. Ghost is a modern disco song with a dark undercurrent - it is a story about living in a toxic relationship. The song was born out of a desire to put into words the painful emotions and memories that arise from a controlling and manipulative dynamic, and the healing process of rising above painful experiences. The single is accompanied by Rahmel’s debut music video, directed by Tero Vuorinen.
Rahmel’s music combines modern electronic pop with the organic tones of the Finnish folk instrument the kantele. Her latest release was inspired by contemporary artists such as Empress of and HAIM. The song was co-produced by her artistic collaborator Jussi Liukkonen of Helsinki’s Artlab Studio.
Jutta Rahmel (b. 1991) is an upcoming artist, who has gained wide recognition following her recent performances with chart-topping Finnish pop star Vesala. The singer-songwriter has a background in Finnish folk music and has been a member of the kantele and vocal group Kardemimmit for 20 years. She released her debut single White Smoke in November 2019, followed by the sparkly 80s influenced synth-pop song Oblivious in March 2020.
*Kantele is the national instrument of Finland, a harp-like string instrument that has deep roots in Finnish folk music, it is estimated to be over 2000 years old.
