Hailing from the capital city of Finland, Artur U & the New City Limits is a fresh addition to the alternative music scene of Scandinavia.
Together with his group, the 23-year old steel guitarist – who’s already shared recording and performing credits in New York with the likes of Bill Laswell and James Chance – is performing intense, alternative-spirited fusion of rock and pop.
Musical influences are drawn from the likes of Lou Reed, Wire and Iggy Pop all the way to the steel guitar extravaganza of the Campbell Brothers and Robert Randolph. The songs themselves tend to deal with moody, introspective thoughts, and the music itself has an intense, personal feeling.
