If you don’t participate in the grand festival of international pop that is Eurovision national final season, you’ll only just have become aware of Finland’s wonderful Saara Alto, who is currently battling the forces of evil on the UK X Factor (is that what happens on X Factor? I don’t watch it myself)
We’ve already featured some great Finnish music on Listen Outside, but for the rest of the week, I’ll be keeping it Suomi.
First up is Sanni – she’s one of a new wave of exciting Finnish-language pop singer songwriters. Her thing seems to be challenging, shifting beats that slightly distort the form of her pop songs. She’s already on her third album – she released the latest one, SANNI earlier this month.
