FINLAND: ARTISTS YLE SHOULD CONSIDER FOR #UMK2019, vol.4

Here comes the last set of hits from the Finnish airwaves this summer for now. YLE might be keeping an ear for possible #UMK2019 and Eurovision song contest entrants. Or possibly not....

Ilta is a new Finnish-German artist, who started at the top being the featured artist in megastar Cheek's #1 Sillat. Another featuring followed with some Adele covers before she released her first solo effort Koukkuun that went streaming gold. Let's see if she can make it and battle out off the shadows to spotlight among all these new up and coming female artists....
If Antti Tuisku is the male #1 in most everyone's wish list, Jenni Vartiainen is a true wet dream. When YLE announced they go internal again in 2019 media and chatrooms shouted out for Jenni in unison. She' working on her 4th album at the moment (all previous ones have sold multiplatinum). Meanwhile she has released alresdy four singles off it, this Väärään suuntaan was a radioplay #1, and her latest Voulez vous made it to #1 in download charts... as were the other two: Turvasana and Se oikea. If only.....!!!
Eetu has been in various bands before but is now launching his solo career and Bae is the very first single. And the first song he wrote himself, the melody back in 2010 and the lyrics recently. No way YLE is looking at his direction but that piano arrangement is original and the song's very catchy so worth a note.
Neon2 dominated the Finnish charts in early 1990's with Kemiaa, Polku and Tässä talossa, that was their debut and came 2nd in 1992 Syksyn Sävel contest. They have reunited occasionally a few times in between but now they seem to be back for real with Itseni kaltainen and I was a fan back then and this newest one Ikuisesti aina feels very nostalgic and nicely familiar..... 2014 they participated in a reality series We want more where they wrote and released a new song Kaunis.
