Tom: Suggested by an anonymous reader, this track’s in from Finland. It’s a couple of months old now, but I’m running with it anyway because first: it’s a builder, and second: I bet you’re surprised by the direction it builds in.
Tim: Hmm – mildly unexpected, I’ll grudgingly admit.
Tom: I was expecting a four-on-the-floor club banger, and what I got was something a bit more interesting: it’s up-and-down like a roller coaster, with more euphoric builds than should rightly fit into four minutes. I was surprised, actually: I thought it’d outstay its welcome, but I enjoyed it to the end.
Tim: As did I – there’s no real opportunity to get bored, what with the regular up and downing. I particularly enjoyed the video – I see quite a bit of myself in his often ridiculous dancing, and I appreciate it when that happens.
Tom: Finnish is a difficult language to translate, but one lyric stood out: “Have mercy on me now, do not play with my emotions”. He’s asking his partner to either stay or go — but just make their mind up either way. Not typical fodder for a dance track, that.
Tim: No, I guess not. Good work all round, then.
