Alternative, Ambient, Experimental, Jazz

Helsinki-based VIRTA are known for their immersive live shows and the extraordinary electroacoustic music they create. The way the band mixes ambient electronica with Nordic jazz, post-rock and psychedelia is unique. Founded in 2011 by childhood friends Erik Fräki, Antti Hevosmaa and Heikki Selamo, VIRTA has released two critically acclaimed albums, Tales from the Deep Waters (Tourist Information, 2012) and Hurmos (Svart Records, 2016). After undergoing a metamorphosis over the past few years, the trio released their long-awaited third album, Horros, via Svart Records. With the new album, VIRTA dives even deeper into the twilight zone.
