‘Spineless’ is by the band Selma Juudit Alessandra. Helsinki based. Extraordinarily modern, unique, and uncompromisingly definitive. The song is the 2nd single from the band’s upcoming album.
Avant-gard, but never over burdening, technically ‘Spineless’ doesn’t demonstrate any guitars. But you don’t notice it. You don’t notice that it’s not here, imposing its 6 string offerings.
And you’re fine with that. More than fine, really.
Selma Juudit Alessandra is a project that is an artist’s dream. It is irreverent when it wants to be. It is dynamic in perpetuity. It is a sight for sore eyes (of the heart) when it tell you when you can.
It’s a tease of reluctance, that is gorgeous and enthralling.
‘Spineless’ is about toxicity of another, bringing the urgency and un-necessary angst to a relationship. Then you finally understanding that exact fact.
The song is fantastically mixed, bringing the song to its essence, then amplifying with that tornado like oomph. The band’s vocalist Selma Savolainen’s baritone vocal presence is delicious in every way, maintaining with an earnest fire that just bubbles underneath.
The band is rounded out with Artturi Rönkä, Joonas Tuuri, and Jesse Ojajärvi.
