Timshel from Vassa in Finland is the indie-dance sextet of Markus Bergfors (Vocals / Guitar), Patrick Stenbacka (Bass), Olli Nousiainen (Guitar), Petter Erikslund (Drums), Daniel Ventus (Keys) and Sebastian Jacobson (Multi-instrumentalist).
Skipping around the room like a Spring Lamb I find myself in enthral of Timshel, who are able to harness the multifarious angles of projection to a cohesion which just leaves the brain freshly showered. Folk, pop and rock combine into the soundscape that the sextet offer to the ears.
A lightness of touch gives the music an uplight, whilst songs of consternation gives the tracks a sonorous intensity that captivates the mind and Timshel is able to deliver tracks which offer a subtlety of touch which belies the number in the line-up. Rather than using the dexterity to produce volume, they use it to deliver flecks of colour which intoxicate the mind.
The compositions are smartly packaged, but on taking time to unwrap the glossy paper the listener is able to find music which has a heart and soul.
With a decent catalogue behind them, the most recent single – Halfway To Anywhere, which came out on the 17th a adds another fine touch to the library of sounds.
Halfway To Anywhere – Single – Timshel is available on iTunes.*
