From cold, beautiful Helsinki arrives a surprisingly warm breeze as these twentysomething Finnish lads treat us with sunny guitar pop melodies and catchy-as-hell tunes, combining jangly guitars with nostalgic lyrics while adding a unique Nordic touch of their own.

While yet unsigned in their home country, this extraordinarely promising group turned many heads with their hit single "Runaway" last summer and have already signed a record deal in Japan (for Japan territory only but still).
Now they are back with their brand new single "Tell Me", which again proves their undeniable talent for writing songs with choruses that will bounce around your head for weeks.

After being just over a year together as a group, the band has already gained the status of the next of just a few bands EVER from Finland to gain global success and possibly take on larger stages and audiences across Europe.

The band members Joonas Jalonen (vocals, rhythm guitar), Pete Puustinen (lead guitar), Ilmo Cantell (bass guitar) and Niilo Suihko (drums and percussion, backing vocals) have a wide range of musical taste, but in their songs there can definitely be heard their common love for British guitar pop from the 80's until this day.

Roan wants to lure you onto sunny side streets, into a young dreamer's romantic reveries where warm melodies charm you like those sultry Parisiennes in the Montmartre night.
