The Candlelights is a four-piece band from Finland that creates a dark sonic web of spiritual-rock blues aimed to liberate the listener from mental chains. The second album »Deathless« is released on September 29th 2023 via Inverse Records. Album cover by Arttu Kantola.
A Dionysian nox rock band from Helsinki, Finland, committed to explore the subterranean and inter-dimensional wavelengths of sound, vision and feeling. We are four friends with extensive experience in street playing and discovering inspiring natural locations for creating our music in the open air through shamanic jams.

The singer-guitarist Tuomas and the bassist Arttu have been friends since childhood and have competed in a friendly way to explore musical regions beyond their home country Finland. Eventually the imaginary adventures evolved into creative experimentations and a drummer was needed to provide a rhythmic background for the songs. Thus Timi was invited into the group, to jam out in an old WWII era wooden house where the group’s musical roots were established. After a sleuth of gigs around Finland, Mikko was invited to play the drums and Timi moved on to keyboards, guitar and backing vocals. Together the group has traveled and played the streets of various European cities and engaged in squat-house jams, protest marches and other shady gatherings from the underbelly of the society.
