Tim: A Finnish guys that we’ve not featured before, largely because, like Alex Järvi last week, the genre isn’t typically something I’d normally listen to. To be honest, most of this song still fits in that category.
Tom: Yep, this isn’t normally the sort of thing that either of us likes, why do– ah, it’s the chorus, isn’t it?
Tim: It’s the chorus, yes indeed. It’s very much of the genre the Sweden was sending to Eurovision 2017 & 2018, which left me with a “yep, I see what you’re doing, not for me thanks” – but Done quite a bit better than either of those. That loud “but SHE KNOWS” sounds really really good, and gets me giving the song enough of a good will factor that I’ll enjoy the rest of the chorus as well.
Tom: Right: it reminds me a lot of the Weeknd’s style.
Tim: In the first chorus it’s not there quite so much, so I’m still not really in there for the second verse, but everything after that gets me really enjoying all the rest. I like it when a song does that – obviously it’d be preferable if it was strong enough from the outset that I enjoyed it immediately, but when a song can build up enough of a momentum from one point to carry me through to another, that’s a good thing.
Tom: Although I am a bit worried that one of the, uh, ‘benefits’ listed is the “ways her legs can bend”. I know what that’s meant to imply, but my brain jumped to some odd alien joint arrangement first.
