Yotto Warms Up To Winter Vibes on 'North': Premiere

Miro Kalliola


Outside is cold and harsh, but here inside your Finnish cabin, you are cozy and warm.

Okay, you might not be experiencing such simple pleasures, but Yotto was when he wrote his single "North," a joyous and expansive tune that mirrors the winter wonderland of his surroundings while capturing the snuggliness of not actually standing in the cold. It's beautiful and powerful, but not overwhelming.

"I wrote ''North' last winter when I had a few days off touring and was able to come home and enjoy my sanctuary in the snow," Yotto tells Billboard. "I always felt like it conveyed some darkness with a warm sense of nostalgia. The track worked really well in my sets, and I decided to build a full EP around it. It's all crafted during calm periods of time in the solitude of my studio at home, away from the road. The EP has a slightly broader palette than most of my previous releases and proceeds from cold and dramatic to warm and fuzzy." 

Sounds like this forthcoming EP is perfect, now that summer is on its way out. "North" is released on Yotto's favorite musical home Anjunadeep. Cuddle up with a cup of hot cocoa and press play below.
