A power duo from south coast of Finland, Jarse has been preparing for a psychedelic revolution since 2009, drawing inspiration from the psychedelic music from all decades, from dark prehistorical age to the distant future. In 2011 first official Jarse release, 7" single Alas (Fonal Records) saw daylight. It holds a record of being one of the fastest productions in the history of Fonal records, process from composing to the test pressings took less than two weeks. As the single was cut live at the tiny bedroom in eastern Helsinki with 13 session musicians, it also holds the record of being physically the tightest session in history of audio recording. To celebrate these achievements in summer 2011 Jarse played 6 week long European tour through central Europe, Scandinavia and even Iceland. Performances in pitch dark venues with a custom built flicker machine producing hallucinogenic vibrations left astonished audiences behind. While Jarse was forced to do this tour with a one member lineup, currently Jarse will manifesting their jaw-dropping version of modern day psychedelia as a two piece unit. The history of members of Jarse contains many notable bands such as Shogun Kunitoki, Rauhan Orkesteri, Kiila, Pymathon etc. Year 2012 will see the release of first Jarse full length album that has been perfected slowly since early 2010 in their remote cottage studio in Lapland, just under the arctic circle.
