New album out + Mika Tyyskä with Troy Grady – Live stream

Night Overdrive, Mika Tyyskä’s debut solo album is here! Pure musical joy with melodic guitars, 80’s style synth and odd machine beats. Kind of like Synthwave with heavy guitar, but different! Inspired by John Carpenter, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Seagul… action movies! From hard rocking bad ass tracks to soothing night time atmospheres. Incredibly crunchy sound. All music was recorded on 4-track and 8-track tape. That’s right, c-cassettes!!!
