“Shine 2009 embrace the easy, midtempo shake of clubby 1990s pop, evoking the atmosphere of dark discotheques rather than the beaches of Ibiza” – Pitchfork Music acts as a time machine. A melody can transport you back to your youth, unlock memories, take you to the future and beyond. Finnish duo Shine 2009 has harnessed that ability to mess up your perception of time. Edgy beats coupled with hazy atmospherics conjure up basement clubs in concrete jungles; melancholic vocals and lyrics evoke lost weekends shot through with a sense of yearning; that twenty-something limbo when you’re trying to make sense of new experiences and emotions. A distortion of timelines is at the heart of their music. 2009 was the year of their inception – and their name would appear to acknowledge that. Mikko Pykäri and Sami Suova are not concerned about anchoring themselves to a specific era since what excites them is the notion that music can remain pertinent and loved
in 2019 or even 2059 – and that its relationship to a bygone year will inevitably change. United in a shared vision and with an unrelenting eye for detail, Mikko and Sami work in tandem as Shine 2009 to create evocative, timeless and confident pop music.
