“As a teenager, Mikko Singh had a thoroughly reverent approach to pop song production. They should, according to his belief, be recorded in studios with expensive equipment in order to achieve the best result. Back then, he himself could only record his first pieces on a cassette recorder.
A couple of decades later he knows that the lo-fi approach wasn’t so bad after all, for his second album under the name Haleiwa on Morr Music the swede now recorded his instruments on a 4-track and reel-to-reel recorder. Among other things, these were vintage synthesizers that had probably never seen the inside of a high-tech studio before.
Here Singh lays the floating, wafting sounds over dream pop songs, minimal music-like works or a proper punk rock hustle”.
“…This bright music is best enjoyed when Singh surfs the waves, which are not only remotely reminiscent of the Beach Boys”.
