OH's music is a combination of epic indie pop songs and post-punk influences. Oskari is known for e.g. from Scandinavian Musicgroup and he has collaborated with e.g. With Ellinoora, Kalevauva and Timo Kämäräinen.

Otto Mikkola is a singer and songwriter from Rovaniemi, who is known e.g. from his bands Autiomaa, Puhelenseksi and Romance. Mikkola, known as an active music maker, has embarked on a solo career and is publishing music for the first time under his own name. Jyväskylä's Harava Records released Mikkola's debut album in the spring and winter of 2023.

Growing up in Rovaniemi, Mikkola's songs are colored by the extremes of northern melancholy - darkness and the midnight sun. Emotional texts are mixed with dark-sounding tunes that draw from Americana, folk and folk.

Hatara retroactively describes the sound world he creates as rhythmic music running at low speeds. The trio conjures creeping and lingering sound passages in their mainly instrumental compositions. There will be an undeniably captivating, slow-paced and bitterly beautiful concert in Papinniemi.
