It was early 2011 when couple of bands gathered together to talk about the status quo of the Finnish rock-scene. There were lots of good bands but no-one was working together. There was no feel of a community which seemed to flourish, for example, among the Finnish rap-artists. We came up with an idea of a loose collective and a compilation album – made by the bands themselves – which we could use to help each other to find a broader audience.
Although the required two songs each were put together in no time, the actual process of releasing an album was buried under other projects and because we felt that we needed something more to help audience to find it. In the end, when the whole project was about to be forgotten, we came up with a name “Rock in Finglish” and an idea of a competition where a young Finnish band singing in English would get a spot in the album as well as an opportunity to record the songs in Atomic Spa Studios. The winner was Dawn and the roster for the album was ready.
You can find the album behind any of the following links:
Otso’s succesful appearance in popular Tartu Mikkiin -show can still be seen in Yle Areena for couple of weeks. There’s also one more rerun left next thursday 11.4 on YLE TV2 at 15:10. Otso is accompanied by other UMK-artists Diandra, Mikael Saari and, of course, the winner Krista Siegfrids. So it’s worth seeing, if you missed it first time.
Also there is only 10 days left until the release of much anticipated Rock in Finglish -compilation featuring two previously unreleased songs from Lucy Was Driving: Metamorphosis and I Don’t Want To Save The World.
Big thanks to all the voters in the UMK-finals. Though Lucy didn’t win, we would like to congratulate Krista Siegfrids for the victory – we have a great song & artist representing Finland this year in the Eurovision Song Contest! We would also like to thank other UMK-artists for solidarity and team spirit back stage. It was an honour sharing the stage with such a great artists.
However, Lucy won’t remain still. We have two new songs featured in the Rock In Finglish -compilation to be release later this spring. As the name states, the compilation includes bunch of great Finnish bands singing in English. We have some gigs coming up, as well. Lots of good stuff on it’s way then!
