Cyril Awakens is a Finnish multidisciplinary band producing
forward-thinking electronic pop with dance music influences. Inspired by
the multifaceted realm of Internet, glitched out graphical forms and
everyday life, their music is a mixture of new and old combining drum
machine beats, melancholic melodies and beautiful soundscapes. The
band consists of singer/composer Konsta Koivisto, drummer Lauri
Suutarinen, DJ/percussionist/producer Juho Kavasto and visual
performer Tuomas Alahäivälä.
Cyril Awakens is well known and loved from their energetic and
captivating live performances supported by live-controlled audiovisuals.
This creates an immersive and emotional experience for the audience,
which literally takes over their bodies. Visual art complements Koivisto's
lyrics dealing with the problematics of everyday life increasingly
dominated by digital technologies. Themes like loving an anime
character or personal contemplation of being socially isolated behind a
computer screen are few examples of Cyril Awakens`s audiovisual
Cyril Awakens was formed in 2017 at the Yamamori Tengu club in
Dublin and has toured actively after returning to Finland.
