Open Stage: Socks and Ballerinas

Open Stage: Socks and Ballerinas

Socks and Ballerinas is an experimental power looping duo based in Helsinki, who make weird sounds and wacky rhythms. They create an unpredictable mix of danceable instrumental live looping, offbeats and unusual structures with colourful sounds; an excuse to give silly names to their songs. Through lots of work and sweat, they developed their own style: a two-person band sounding like a 5-man unit through a multitude of off the wall blasts and pedals tap dancing. Last year, Socks and Ballerinas released their SOAP! album, which is recorded live, self-published and infused with love. After a year of gigs, the band is now working on some shiny new material.
