Finnish producer Perttu has teamed up with childhood friend and vocalist Alexandra for his debut single Waves, and has now released the official summer-tinged music video, available to stream via Vevo. Waves is out now on Universal and is available to purchase via all digital retailers.
Billboard USA –”Though Perttu’s new to the scene, his approach to electronic music is bound to make him stand out in an endless sea of Soundcloud producers. Perttu’s work is largely his own; he records a lot of his samples himself, crafting a totally unique sound”
Waves is a true testament to the scope of Perttu’s musical vision, demonstrating both his production and compositional ability as he deftly positions Alexandra’s husky, luxurious tones within a diverse aural landscape. From lush synths to crisp percussion, Perttu utilises a colourful sonic palette to craft a crystal clear ocean of distinctive summer sensibility. This strong sense of summer catharsis is exuded throughout the music video, showing Perttu enjoying a sunny day with Alexandra and their friends aboard a sun-kissed sailing boat. Perfectly encapsulating the radiance of the track itself, the youthful atmosphere at the heart of the video emanates a sense of optimism and escape that is sure to strike a chord with listeners around the world.

Hailing from the small Finnish island of Suomenlinna, 25-year-old Perttu Kurttila (known simply as Perttu) draws from a wide breadth of musical influences from funk all the way to punk. As a multi-instrumentalist, Perttu’s previous musical ventures were focused around extensive European tours with a host of metal bands. Now operating out of Berlins Bauteil3 studios, Perttu has embraced his penchant for producing top-quality electronic pop and allowed his musical direction to organically drift away from metal and towards his dance music destiny. Still, a passionate performance artist, the talented producer is working on expanding the live aspect of his shows, which you’ll stay up to date with by visiting his socials on Facebook
