Through cinematic indie-folk, Kieli’s debut EP “Tick Tick Talk” raises personal and societal questions about time, purpose and identity. Tick Tick Talk is nostalgic and worried at times, but also playful and empowering with a vivid determination to stay present and create a better future for all beings.


“I decided to record the music myself, and that’s when Tick Tick Talk really started to unfold. You would find me sitting on the floor in my family home at 4AM, scratching the old wooden floor gently, experiencing and enjoying every little detail of sound that somehow captures the essence of my childhood, uniting it with the feeling of growing up, and with who I was becoming in that specific moment.” -Kieli


Kieli is the solo-project of Swedish/Finnish singer and multi-instrumentalist Elin Pöllänen. With roots in Nordic and Finno-Ugric folk music and influences such as Radiohead, Sigur ros and Björk, Kieli composes cinematic indie-folk that invites the listener to hear the versatility of instruments that can be found in an old wooden house: glockenspiel, harmonium, violin, piano, guitar, and the different sounds of wooden floors and sticks.

Kieli’s music embodies her commitment to human and animal rights, and sustainability. With an honest and personal voice, she wants to resonate with empathy and empowerment, and challenge the status quo.

シネマティックなインディー・フォーク音楽が収録されたKieliのデビューEP『Tick Tick Talk』では、音楽を通して、時間や目的やアイデンティティ等、人や社会の問題を投げ掛ける。ノスタルジックであり哀愁が漂う雰囲気も時折見せるTick Tick Talkは、生きるもの全ての現在と明るい未来を願う遊び心に満ちた作品である。


「自分のために音楽を録音しようと決めたときには、既にTick Tick Talkに向けての準備が進んでいたのかもしれない。早朝4時の実家にて、私は床に座って、古い板張りの床を軽く引っかいたり、子供の頃を想い出す音をひとつひとつ楽しみながら、大人になった今の感情と重ね合わせ、新しい自分に気づく特別な時間を過ごせた。」 – Kieli


Kieliは、スウェーデン/フィンランド出身の歌手でありマルチ・インストゥルメンタリストElin Pöllänenのソロプロジェクト。北欧とフィン・ウゴル語派のフォーク・ミュージックの音楽的背景と、レディオヘッド、シガー・ロス、ビョーク等からの音楽的影響を併せ持つKieliが創り出すシネマティックなインディー・フォーク音楽からは、古い木造家屋の中で見つけた様々な音色(グロッケンシュピール、ハーモニウム、バイオリン、ピアノ、ギター、そして木床や小枝から出る色々な音)が聴こえてくる。 Kieliは、全ての生けるものの権利や持続可能性への約束を音楽を使って具現化している。自分の真っ直ぐな声を、共感や活力とともに響かせ、現状をよりよいものにしたいと願っている。
