Pitkä Kuuma Kesä

2nd time of this summers Pitkä Kuuma Kesä welcomes our friends from deep south, Odd Hugo from Estonia! They have an emotionally touching sound that has been compared to Beirut, Bright Eyes and their fellow Estonians Ewert and the Two Dragons.

Odd Hugo is a band whose imagination comes across as warm and inspiring. It is manifested intrinsically in the vocal and stringful textures of Rando Kruus and Oliver Vare and set in the landscapes created by the drums of Kaarlo Nõmmsalu, coloured delicately with the trumpet of Aigor Post and the trombone of Henri Aruküla. It stands independent and ingenious.

Formed in summer 2012, Odd Hugo is a fresh Estonian act, already internationally acknowledged for its part mellow folkie, part heart-rending poet soundscapes and crowd hypnotic live emotion. For a fresh ear it would feel a bit like Andrew Bird, Jack White and Beirut blended together, but going deeper you’ll find some excellent tunes that people immediately fall in love! With their debut album “Odd Hugo” released in spring of 2013, they have taken their voices, strings and brass across the Baltic states, Germany, Hungary, Finland, Sweden and played among others at Fusion Festival, Positivus, Art Goes Kapakka, Lost In Music Festival and Valoa Festival. ODD HUGO's self-titled album was also nominated for best debut album of 2013 at the Estonian Music Awards 2014. In April the band went on a Germany-Netherlands tour where they played 9 shows including a main stage performance at Hidden Treasures Festival. in 17th of April Odd Hugo won the "Skype Go Cange The World Award 2014"- best act at Tallinn Music Week - chosen by international delegates! Currently they are working on new material and hopefully start to record in the summer.
