Finnish solo artists Jaakko Eino Kalevi and Long-Sam release their second album together, ‘Orbit’. Now working under the name Man Duo, they will release the record on 18 Aug.

“Man Duo sounds more like a band instead of just two individuals”, says Sami Toroi, aka Long-Sam. “We used to go by the name Jaakko Eino Kalevi & Long-Sam – now it’s easier to see this as a unit of its own without confusing it with our solo careers”.

“We’re more professional now”, adds Kalevi. “But still have the spirit of amateurs”.

The first single from the album, ‘What If It Falls’, is out now. The song “deals with events of an almost catastrophic nature”, explains Kalevi. It also features the deadpan hook of “push-ups, shaving, moisturiser”, that will be rattling around your head for days to come.
