Nordic playlist 4/2015

Helsinki, 10 degrees




One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Lately, I've been really impressed by the Nordic music that I've heard! It's no secret that my current favorite Finnish music artist is Kasmir, whose gig I went to about three weeks ago (as seen on my Instagram account - the photo above). He sings in Finnish though, so in this blog post I also wanted to present a Finnish band that sings in English, Satin Circus that is. They actually tried to represent Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest as well, but unfortunately, didn't make it to the actual song contest. They were, actually, my favorite among the alternatives. In this blog post, I also wanted to present Swedish and Norwegian songs that I like right now.

Viime aikoina olen ollut erittäin tyytyväinen Pohjoismaiden musiikkitarjontaan! Jos seuraat minua Instagramissa, tiedät varmasti jo, että Kasmir on tällä hetkellä suosikkilaulajani mitä tulee kotimaisiin artisteihin. Noin kolme viikkoa sitten kävin hänen keikalla Helsingin Korjaamolla, ja huikea keikka oli kyllä! Tässä blogikirjoituksessa halusin myös tuoda esiin Satin Circuksen, joka oli suosikkiehdokkaani Euroviisuihin, sekä yhden ruotsalaisen ja norjalaisen biisin, joka tällä hetkellä kuuluu lempibiiseihini.

Finland
Kasmir - Iholla



and/or in English:

Finland
Satin Circus - Crossroads




Sweden
Seinabo Sey - Younger




Norway
Kygo - Stole the show


What are your favorite songs right now? What kind of music do you like?

Mitkä ovat sinun suosikkikappaleet tällä hetkellä? Minkälaista musiikkia kuuntelet?

  2. Oh no, it didn't make to the Eurovision, this is bad, cause I loved the song! I am so glad you showed these songs here - I didn't know about Satin Circus and I simply loved the band! That's the kind of beat I like to listen to, but I also like classical music a lot. I still remember when Lordi Eurovision award, a Finnish band!

    1. Yeah, it's a great song! :) Yes, all of us Finns remember Lordi forever since it's the only Finnish band to ever win the Eurovision :)
