On the debut album from Helsinki-based Big Wave Riders, the band seems to do everything in its power to put the Nordic stereotypes to bed. There are no slow build-ups to be found, no empty spaces filled by light music or whispered lyrics, and no melancholy stories of youth. It’s all straight-ahead indie rock with washes of psychedelia, garage, and electronic.

“Sunny Season” is from their debut album Life Less Ordinary, which is available in the US through iTunes.
