The music of verões aka Helsinki-based musician Petri Nakari is a perfect fit to this festival, because he is making wonderful cover versions of Finnish indie songs from the early 00s. The originals were a big part of the early days of this music blog and I love listening to his beautifully reimagined versions of these songs that are blissfully stuck in my heart. The festival number for verões is called Fire On the Streets. It was written by ultrasport and their original appeared on their 2005 album Nothing Can Go Wrong. The studio version of this cover by verões can be found from the new self-titled album that is available on Bandcamp.
