Acclaimed Helsinki Film/TV Composer And Classical Thereminist Kepa Lehtinen Releases New Single “It Gets Dark” July 27th 2022

Dark Nocturne for Piano, Theremin, and Double Bass

Noted Helsinki-based film and television composer Kepa Lehtinen is pleased to announce the release of his new single “It Gets Dark” on July 27th, 2022.

The piece is a stark, minimalist instrumental featuring only piano, double bass, and theremin that blends classical elements with genre-less atmospheres that will send you high into the nighttime sky. Kepa has developed his own creative voice with these three instruments and is able to convey complex emotions with just a few notes and some open space. He plays the piano and theremin parts himself, leaving the upright bass work to his brother Ari Lehtinen. “It Gets Dark” will be available on all of the major music platforms immediately upon release.

Kepa Lehtinen is a 51-year-old composer, studio owner, skateboarder, husband, father, and theremin player workingin Helsinki, Finland. His career has been mostly in music for film, television, and commercials. He has also created a sizable body of solo releases including the EPs It’s OK to Be Sad and Dark, Playing Theremin, and Face Plant.

Originally a pianist, Lehtinen was drawn to the theremin, a touch-less, electronic instrument of Russian origins, and was surprised how well his recordings with it were received. Since then, he has evolved a signature sound built around piano themes, shifting theremin harmonies, and supportive double bass. He’s one of Europe’s most compelling and original modern composers who only writes the music he feels most deeply.

Ashley Puckett Holds Nothing Back on “Tequila”

A woozy, dazed quality emerges on Ashley Puckett’s yearning “Tequila”. From the slide guitar to the gritty storytelling it all works. She manages to make this rather captivating world one that feels doubly refreshing. Everything about her delivery adds to the inherent beauty of the piece. Rhythms go for a looseness ensuring that every single detail gets accentuated with percussion that works on an emotional level. Best of all the riffs have a dreamy disposition for there is this sense of pure longing that defines the work.

She holds nothing back and right from the beginning it has its own sense of purpose. A groove has an unsteadiness to it, perfectly embodying what a lot of tequila might do to a person. This, on top of the lustful glances that she brings into the fray, further adds to the romantic quality of the work. Volume adds to this for the piece virtually works itself into an outright crescendo. Many different parts of the group makes sure to intermingle creating this vast expanse of territory, the kind of thing that feels quite potent. For the final stretch of the mix the song seemingly tapers off, allowing for a gradual letdown of that kinetic energy, with her voice continuing to lead the way all until the very final moments.

“Tequila” has a tenderness to it, for Ashley Puckett makes sure to touch upon the very essence of what it means to truly want.
