Finnish Psych-Folk Duo Tuomo & Markus Release Immersive New Song “Anyhow Lane”

American landscape inspired their soundscape

Finnish jazz trumpet virtuoso Verneri Pohjola and critically acclaimed psychedelic indie-folk group Tuomo & Markus have joined forces on new single “Anyhow Lane.” They’ve also recorded an entire collaborative all-instrumental album titled Music For Roads, set to be released worldwide November 1st.

American landscape inspired the soundscape of the upcoming album which is a unique blend of Nordic jazz and psychedelic desert music. “Anyhow Lane” is leaning heavily on cinematic Americana, with its hi-strung acoustic guitars and pedal steel complementing Pohjola’s inspired trumpet delivery.

The upcoming Music For Roads started in their homeland already amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, which shut down the world and made air travel and international touring impossible. Tuomo & Markus guitarist and co-founder Markus Nordenstreng confesses that it felt more natural to compose instrumentals than to write compelling lyrics at the time.

“I remember a recording session very early on when you couldn’t have more than seven people in one room at a given time. There was continuous political turmoil in the news and then at the tail-end of the pandemic the war in Ukraine broke out, less than 1,000 miles away from our hometown. We needed an escape from all the madness. Since it was impossible to make physical roadtrips to America at the time, we decided to create a virtual one,” Markus Nordenstreng says.

Instrumental music and immersive audio tech provided the perfect route to construct Music For Roads.
