Biography

Helsinki, Finland

Lau Nau’s abstract folk is a mosaic of a myriad of instruments that fall where they may, with free open structures, balancing on a thin wire of logical evolution, with surprising harmonies. Still, the songs have strong backbones. Melody is suggested through the contours of a wandering and warm voice. Lau Nau’s debut album is released by the Chicago-based label Locust and is an amazing slice of outdoor sounds, multi-instrumentation, surreal and lush vocals. “The music, compared to reading literature, is a book with the leaves spread in the order of a tree. You get a three-dimensional picture, like nature’s sounds from a human soul.”

Lau Nau is Laura Naukkarinen and her wonderly wonderful friends. So far these helpers have been: Jonna Karanka, Merja Kokkonen, Pekko Käppi, Michael Northam, Tomas Regan and Antti Tolvi, who have performed on the records or in the live shows.

Lau Nau is from Helsinki, Finland.

    me too. but it really is kind of cute once someone with this kind of favorite music really wants to judge stuff like that. or: why does he want to, at all?

    I love Lau Nau, but ScepSpec made me laugh.

    I don't want your heed anyway. This finnish barn-hang-dance music just makes me cringe...

    ScepSpec's top artist is Rebelution, pay him no heed

    This is crap, too... For some odd reason most finnish music doesn't appeal to me or outright pisses me off because these guys do such a bad job at pretending they're weird

    Sounds great, but maybe it would sound better in the cold scandinavian winter.

    'Kuoleman tappajan kuolema' shocked me a little bit.

    Oh, that's good. I don't like having to murder. I don't like Facebook either, but it's still good news :)

    @NamesAreBStupid It is very true as she confirmed it on facebook. Also does anyone know where I can find a link or copy of Ebony & Ivory?

    VVV This had better be true. If it's not I will go on a murderous rampage. No one likes murder, so let's just have the album, yeah?
