I’m From Finland – “Young Love”

(@cascaderecords)
Nicolas Pencolé is a producer from Rennes, France, who makes electronic music under the alias I’m From Finland (IFF, for short). Having connected with Parisian label Cascade Records, he will be releasing a 5-track EP on February 19th. My introduction to this guy was through his title track, called “Young Love”, and it’s such a good, chill song to bump on this Tuesday afternoon.

As one of his 3 vocal songs, we hear IFF‘s warm-toned voice singing a song about the negative emotions that can come with falling in love, such as fighting against self-doubt and over-thinking things (“I wanted to run away, whoa oh // I wanted to run away // But I’m glad I didn’t, no no“). His production is just as soothing and moody as his vocals, as his relatable, struggle-with-love story is propelled by downtempo keys, rhythmic hand claps, and a few distorted vocal loops. I could listen to this on repeat for hours. Give it a listen, and look out for the EP soon!

I’ve got question marks all over the place // It’s like they’re laughing at my face // A ringtone’s like a holy grail // After 2 or 3 days of silence
