Sin Cos Tan are a Finnish electro duo consisting of Jori Hulkkonen and Juho Paalosmaa. The pair released their debut album just two weeks ago which has flown straight to No. 2 on the Finnish iTunes chart.
Sin Cos Tan give off a real ’80s vibe. Their heavy use of synths coupled with sexy, dark vocals (“Trust, an overrated word, this one’s gunna hurt, for more than just a day”) hark back to the Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode but their electronic rooting and trendy sound pulls them back into contemporary cool territory. The debut single, Trust, has proved itself to be a tailor made, fashion-house hit as it’s already been chosen to feature on a trailer for Paris Fashion Week.
The band recently played at London’s Lexington with Norway’s Highasakite.
