Neljänsuora is a Finnish pop band originally from Lohja.

Formed in 1998, it showcased the vocals of Antti Ketonen, earlier of the band Alvarn. Neljänsuora original band (made up of Antti Ketonen, Juha Mäki, Esko Mäki, Mikko Hägerström and Urho Sevón) was greatly effected by metal music.

In later years, band line-up changed with Urho Sevón leaving in 2005 and Esko Mäki more recently in 2011.

New members were admitted like Jarkko Pietilä and Jussi Välimaa (2005-2006) and they turned into a pop band. After long-standing member Esko Mäki left as drummer in 2011, he was replaced by Johan Murtojärvi.

The band is signed to WEA / Warner Music label.
