Bio:

Formed in 2013, LEAFLET is a four-piece hard rock band from Turku, Finland. Their music can be described as metal-infused American-style hard rock and while you might hear echoes of bands like Alter Bridge or Shinedown they have their own unique Nordic flavour. “Our musical cocktail is a blend of many things. Although we love the 80s, we are trying to keep our hard rock fresh and not follow the retro route”, the band says.The band has performed on Finnish festivals such as Kuopiorock and Saaristo Open Air along with touring across their home country to support their debut album. They also spent time on the road in the Baltics with Willie & the Goodsouls in 2018 again playing clubs and festivals.In 2019, LEAFLET released “Johnny Two-Face” as a single through VR Label Finland followed by an ambitious music video shot in both Turku, Finland, and Tokyo, Japan. After a couple of years of silence due to the pandemic, the band is now back with their second album “Something Beyond” to be released by Rockshots Records in January 2023, sounding stronger than ever.

Album:

“Something Beyond” is the second album from Finland’s LEAFLET, a young band showing that true rock music is alive and pumping. The album is full of catchy metal / hard rock tunes that would fit perfectly in your classic rock collection, updated in sound & production.This four-piece infuse to their music an American style modern hard rock sound with Scandinavian nuances. It’s often a challenge to take influences from the past to remain relevant in an ever-evolving music market – these gentlemen sprinkle in guitar-driven material with the right soulful, passionate vocal melodies/harmonies that keep people moving along, taking the energy of the 80’s/early 90’s into the current century.The electricity pulsating from the main chord progressions and complementary clean/aggressive transitions of Jaakko Leaflet and Antti Kallio sends immediate earworms to the brain on first exposure for “Earth” or the heads down, dirty rocker “Shades of Black”. The steady rhythm section duties of bassist Fabian Korsström and drummer Pekka Jokela fill the foundation as steady as necessary – throwing down little fills or additional hooks to make “Gonna Do It” and the groovy “Someone Somewhere” intoxicating toe-tappers.Stronger background vocal support from the band allows for deeper chorus affiliations – traversing the sleaze/modern hard rock angles on the commercial-oriented “Resonate” while possessing a bit of that Scandinavian touch on the thoughtful, bouncy “Johnny Two-Face”.The versatility of tracks is an ideal selling point, brought home by the magnetic voice of Jaakko as the main vocalist – he can be smooth or restrained as in the opening verse for “Alone-Alive” while executing a primal, psychedelic-driven aura on the already talked about “Shades of Black”.Closer “Something Beyond” could be a difference maker – the cultural, Celtic-oriented harmonies plus acoustic to electric riffs possess a bit of that Finnish melancholy, Jaakko giving his all in engaging melodies while the lead breaks set ears to stun mode.Together at this point for a decade, Leaflet may seem on the surface to be a very basic heavy/hard rock-oriented band – yet ”Something Beyond” has that extra depth of multi-generational appeal through dynamic compositions, solid focus, and that alluring vocal harmony component.
A hidden little gem waiting for more consumers to join the brigade.
