KUUPUU / LIVE / Téléconfinement
Kuupuu is the solo-project of Finnish visual artist and musician Jonna Karanka. Her records have been released on such labels as EM Records (Japan), Time-Lag Records (USA) and Dekorder (Germany). She has performed in KRAAK Festival (Brussels), ISSUE Project Room (NYC), Flow Festival (Helsinki), Fylkingen (Stockholm), Museo do Chiado (Lisbon) etc. Kuupuu was born in the early 2000s when four trackers started to be in fashion again and the inspiring spirits of Tampere underground (Avarus, The Anaksimandros, Islaja and Kemialliset Ystävät, to name a few) were labouring magical tunes next door. Almost 20 years later Kuupuu is still swimming in the lake of muddy dream-pop, found sounds, loops and electro-acoustic hiss & bliss. Her latest album Plz tell me is a self-released (now sold-out) tape and digital release. The Belgian record label KRAAK will re-issue the record (with few new tracks) as a vinyl album in November 2020.
