Joel Sarakula

Joel Sarakula is one hell of a passionate guy who brings us the perfect soundtrack for 70s and 80s pop music. Referencing Elvis Costello's backing band, Joel Sarakula named his new record “The Imposters”. This just shows the ironic offhandedness of Joel Sarakula's music. On the album cover he poses as a nerdy spy wearing an old-school trenchcoat and a heavy pair of headphones listening in on something or someone.

Joel Sarakula is one hell of a passionate guy who brings us the perfect soundtrack for 70s and 80s pop music. Referencing Elvis Costello's backing band, Joel Sarakula named his new record “The Imposters”. This just shows the ironic offhandedness of Joel Sarakula's music. On the album cover he poses as a nerdy spy wearing an old-school trenchcoat and a heavy pair of headphones listening in on something or someone. He could also be a semi-professional ornithologist scouring the world for bird songs. That's what makes him so funny. Originally coming from Australia, he now lives in London, where he likes walking around wearing heavily brimmed glasses alongside an interesting hairdo which looks more like something your nanny would have rather than the Beatles. After his much celebrated first record “The Golden Age” (2012), his new record “The Imposter” is his second European release. “At times psychedelic, but always soulfoul retro indiepop,” Joel Sarakula describes his music. Add a hint of folk or anti-folk respectively you'll get the perfect mix. The single “Northern Soul” was featured on the British movie by the same name, telling the story of two long-haired teenagers discovering American Soul. When you see Joel Sarakula playing live he looks as if he jumped directly out of the 70s himself. Each time he hits the stage he gives everything he's got. May he be playing in a Norwegian fishing village or in an American underground club, it'll be fireworks including some very danceable dance parts. “Fortunately, I can live off my music and my live shows, my little humble life,” he smiles joyfully, looking forward to be playing many more venues across the world.
