Pearly Drops is Sandra Tervonen and Juuso Malin, who also run the Helsinki-based FEF Corp. record label. Having worked with ALMA, Nightwave, and Inga Copeland in the past, with Choke they take centre stage in their own right.

The tight percussion keeps the more ethereal elements of the track grounded much of the time. Tervonen’s vocals are a source of wonder and reverie, whilst the lush synths and swirling guitar chime in, wave after wave, to induce the listener to ignore reality for a few moments and explore the intricately-woven world of this precious, powerful sound.
