Place: Streets of Helsinki Center
One morning we logged into our Off The Record email account. There was a short message from Swedish indie band Samling’s representative. He asked if we were interested in organizing a session with them when since the band was about to arrive in Helsinki.
To be honest, none of us had ever heard their music. Their name was somehow familiar but that’s about it.
OK Google, help us out – Samling’s website, YouTube clips and Facebook page. Hey, this sounds pretty cool!
A few phone calls later our team was booked. A couple of emails more and the session was confirmed.
We still don’t know much about Samling.
They are from Sweden and play some sort of psychedelic indie/alternative music.
We assume that you out there don’t know much more either.
We hope that you got our point.
If you are in a band and like Off The Record sessions, do not hesitate to contact us. We will probably reply ”sorry, not interested”. But sometimes you may be as lucky as these Swedish fellows. Of whom we had never heard of earlier. At least they had courage to write a short message. Click. Sent. Confirmed.
