Finland’s producer and now label boss Perttu is shining brightly with his new release “Damage Control.” Having carved out his musical career from his time as a drummer when young, he now counts remixes for the likes of Billie Eilish and just set up Perttu Music Oy.
“Damage Control” is a beautifully put together production, which ebbs and flows with subtle nuances. Dreamy vocals chime in from Dom McAllister, who co-wrote the record, and Perttu says: “We originally decided to write about climate change, though the lyrics seem metaphorically about that. It also relates to the need for time in order to heal and take responsibility. I performed all the instruments on the day we wrote the song and I didn’t re-record or edit anything afterwards. Similarly with the vocals, we were able to capture the moment as it appeared. Hopefully some of the magic transmits to the listener.”
