songwriting, gigs and promo shoot

Hi <3

During the last few weeks we've been writing songs all day and night, as some of you might know. It's been great and we have a lot of great new songs coming up! We can't wait for you to hear them! (Especially the love songs ;)) Great songwriters say that you're always one hit away from success, and now we're spending all our time trying to write that one super hit. It's not easy but we're getting closer song by song..

Writing is fun but the best feeling when finishing a new song is the thought of playing that song live for thousands of fans… I guess that's why we're a band and not a songwriting team ;)

As we've done nearly nothing else than songwriting during the last weeks we were super excited when someone called from a great gig venue in Turku and wanted us to come and play a gig there! Especially because of the way the gig was organized: Some of our lovely fans had been requesting us so many times that the venue decided to call us. That's really awesome, thanks girls!!! We had the gig on friday and it was sooo cool to finally play without an age limit, and in Turku! Some fans got there all the way from Eastern Finland and that's really heartwarming. Thank you for all the support!! <3 <3 <3

Krippe, me and some fans in an elevator in Turku after the gig :D

One thing we've noticed is how you fans are starting to team up, you're adding each other on facebook, tweeting to each other and some rumors say you even meet each other outside our gigs! Keep doing that <3 If our band somehow makes people meet and become friends, what more can we ask for?

For all you fans out there: remember to send us mail, questions or photos from our gigs! You mean the world to us! Without you Popsters there wouldn't be a Satin Circus!

We also played a gig in Loviisa on Saturday, we played 3 songs at a mega event for all kinds of artists and theaters and stuff. Great gig once again. People can't help smiling when they watch and hear the Satin Circus love that is bouncing off the stage! The age or gender doesn't matter, happiness works for everyone!

If there's one thing in Loviisa that you don't have anywhere else in the world, it's "Pitaperunat" at Pirjon Grilli, probably the best fast food I've ever had. (even better than the Döner in Berlin!) You should try it if you ever get the chance!

Yesterday we took new promo pictures. We tried a different approach this time: Instead of planning every picture we just had a lot of fun and fooled around in different kinds of places and had the London-based photographer Niko take pictures of us doing what we do best: having fun. In the end it's all about that, whether we're on stage or off stage, in the studio or on a road trip. The best part in being a band instead of a solo artist is that though we might be stuck inside the studio for weeks, we still have each other. Not that we don't have fights and stuff, but we always get over them and just laugh at each others bad jokes! :P

Here's some phone photos while we're waiting for the real ones!

Just wait til you see the photos, you're gonna love them!! Views over the city skyline, a beautiful lake, a road trip, a cozy summer cottage... And thanks to our lovely extras, you were amazing. And super cute<3

Sony Music decides which photos will be used so let's just wait and see!

And now for some great news!! We'll be playing a gig in Jyväskylä on the 9th of December with Robin. Hope to see you all there!
