Finnish synth-pop duo Sin Cos Tan is the musical partnership of producer-DJ Jori Hulkkonen (Pet Shop Boys´ Chris Lowe, Jose Conzalez and Tiga) and Juho Paalosmaa, songwriter and vocalist from Villa Nah who released one of the best albums of 2010 ‘Origin’.
Their 2012 self-titled debut album was nominated for ‘Critics Choice of Album of The Year’ at the Finnish Emma-Awards. The boys chose not to rest on their laurels and 10 months later released their successful follow-up album ‘Afterlife’ including hit single Limbo. Since then the band has been playing packed-out festivals across the world.
Since their debut, Juho Paalosmaa and Jori Hulkkonen have established a classic partnership within the duo-format and songwriting. And with two critically acclaimed albums already out and third album on the way, Sin Cos Tan is at the peak of their creative powers. No shortage of drama, intensity nor sheer pop perfection – this duo delivers. Tenfold.
The group’s forthcoming third album BLOWN AWAY is out August 1, 2014 and tells the story of Michael Burana: a middle-aged American man facing a dead-end job and a failed marriage. To turn his life around, Michael decides to take a trip to Mexico, where he soons discovers a new career opportunity – becoming a drug courier between the United States and South America. BLOWN AWAY picks up from the sunny beaches of Mexico, and follows Michael’s journey of newlyfound excess, fast money and hedonism; all the way to the corrupted heart of Colombian cartels. Forever chasing the elusive American Dream, Michael’s tale is the soundtrack of a world like no other.
