New single ”Ruska (Autumn Colors)” by Martin Söderbacka & Eevalotta Matikainen available on all streaming services March 3rd!
I wrote this song in the fall when nature displays beautiful colors in Finland. The name ruska refers to autumn foliage which is extremely beautiful here where frost hits the trees in September – October. However this is the melody and vibe I got from gazing at the colorful spectrum outside my workspace window.
The song is performed by Martin Söderbacka & Eevalotta Matikainen aka. Söderbacka-Matikainen Duo. We recorded this track in our home studio and I did a few overlays of soundscape guitars to give the song the right autumn feel. This song was actually recorded at the same time we did the tracks for the album ”Christmas” which was released on CD late 2022. Hope you enjoy the music!
