FINNISH NATURE-INSPIRED DARK-ACOUSTIC NEOFOLKRead More...
Loitsu (The Spell) was founded by r.kurkijávri between spring 2003 and summer 2006 at the island of Otava in Turku Archipelago, Finland. Loitsu can be described as a nature inspired, melancholic still hopeful acoustic sound of one man.
“Loitsu has been one of my mirrors to see things in my subconscious and bring something from there to this place and time. Most of the music has never been recorded or released and sometimes there is only changing flow of notes or melody and not even song at all.” -artist describes.
Spring 2003 is seen as a time of Loitsu’s birth, because that was the time when first songs of Loitsu were actually recorded. Songs were called Hiljainen Polku (Silent Path), Tuulen Kuiskaus (Whisper of the Wind) and Talven Kutsu (Call of Winter). These three song were never released although third of them, Talven Kutsu, “leaked” to internet as it was uploaded to Finnish social music sharing website Mikseri.net for a little while. And therefore is still occasionally listened somewhere in this planet years after although it was intented to be deleted. During years 2004-2006 first demo for Loitsu was made. Aamujen Auer (The Haze Of Mornings) included three songs which was and is still released free on internet. In fall 2008 Loitsu was developing and growing physically, mentally and spiritually. Juha Kaartinen joined Loitsu and new material was created together. After 4 months there was 6 hours of audio waiting for arrangement. During these jamming-sessions Loitsu developed also quite a lot in musical way. The same spirit was there, but was deeper, wider and more complex.
However, Loitsu has still not founded, time, space and right mind-setting for creating a planned,
asked and waited full lenght album.
