On December 20, 2012 at 20:12, friends Arttu and Jere waited for the end of the world at their mutual friend’s place. The evening changed to night, and then to the next day. At least the end of the world didn't come, so the two decided to set up a band. Initially, they would play cover songs from hip-hop to schlager, from pop to rock, and perform some gigs to study the art of playing together.
Suddenly it became clear that they would like to make their own music. The band's name was changed, bass players rotated, and the band's sound began to form. The current line-up stabilized at the beginning of 2019, with 10 written pieces in the pile. Segmentia relaesed their first song ‘Silver Lining’ in April followed quickly by ‘No Resistance’.
“The band is like a family. We share joys and sorrows together. These things are also meant to be shared with other people through music. We enjoy playing music, but also the friendship that we have formed. We believe that we will be able to convey our energy and our closeness through our music. Therefore, with our music, we want to give listeners a unique experience not only in terms of voice, but also visually. We hope that they can feel themselves to be part of our music.
We all stand 100.7% behind our band in composition, arrangement, production, and of course, performance. We've given it all, and we've noticed that all of us learn and share our experiences with our environments. Suitably, we are selfish and we live in a so-called “bubble” where this is the most important thing in our lives right now. We can best use our time to develop in each of our instruments and thus, develop as a band. That is why we have no limits on what kind of music we can do. Based on the tracks, the music could be described as a combination of seven musical styles/segments (pop, rock, punk, metal, soul, disco, hip-hop), but in short, it may be some symphonic, alternative pop rock flavored with electronic sounds. Everyone can call this pop metal. We sound differently from other bands so that we have our own, self-created sound that we call the “7egment” sound. It is present in our every song in larger or smaller ways so that the sound is like salt and pepper in food. And as food is a prerequisite for life, we cannot live without music.”
