Approved: Maarja Nuut & Ruum

Maarja Nuut & Ruum

Already successful solo artists in their own right, Estonia musicians Maarja Nuut and Hendrik Kaljujarv, aka Ruum, are set to release their first album together, ‘Muunduja’, next month. Produced by Howie B, the record sees them bring together their individual styles, while also challenging their usual ways of working.

Tracks like the currently available ‘Kuud Kuulama’ and ‘Haned Kadunud’ have a highly defined mood and atmosphere, onto which Nuut places violin and vocals, while Kaljujarv fills out the space with synths. The finally balanced finished recordings build worlds that can be claustrophobic, or vast and open, depending on how you choose to take them.

With the album released through FatCat’s 130701 imprint on 5 Oct, the duo will be in the UK for live performances in December. Kicking off at The Lexington in London on 2 Dec, they’ll then play The Sage in Gateshead on 3 Dec and Norwich Arts Centre on 4 Dec.
