Finnish indie pop stalwarts Jessika Rapo (vocalist for Le Futur Pompiste) and Henry Ojala (drummer for Pet cats burning) teamed up to create the shambly, synthy duo Burning up Hearts in 2004. Sounding something similar to a warm, wispy mixture of Le Futur Pompiste and Pet cats on Fire, Burning up Hearts fit ideal along with Shelflife Information’ early-2000s roster, which at that time included famous brands Times, the Ruling Course, and the air Dept. Burning up Hearts’ debut full-length, Aboa Sleeping, premiered on Shelflife in early 2009. Rapo and Ojala adopted in the album’s launch having a passel of concert events, including their 1st U.S. appearance in the Wedding cake Shop in NEW YORK. After liberating two singles this year 2010 (“Night time Pet” and a cover of Arthur Russell’s “The Notice”), the duo decamped towards the Finnish countryside and documented a four track EP, In to the Wilderness, that was released by Shelflife in June of 2011. The duo came back in early 2012 using their second recording, Extinctions, a darker function colored by loss of life and tragedy.
