Rubik’s music has always combined a technical approach with a natural sense of melody, ever since its first live shows around Helsinki in 2003. The band was quickly signed by the Finland’s leading independent label Fullsteam; nevertheless they had to wait until 2009 to break beyond the boundaries of the band’s native land. The catalyst was their album “Dada Bandits” with its distinctive pop brilliance. The band can be as withdrawn and thick-headed as the artiest rock group out there and then bust out with a melodic hug potent enough to enclose the globe. Rubik can go from sounding like a well oiled, world-conquering machine to a broken down, cigarette encrusted bar piano.
