Here’s a tune and a half that has been doing The Business in Finland for the past few weeks. Janna and her new single and video ‘Läpinäkyvä’.
It’s an electro ballad with a busy industrial production and a fantastically heartwrenching melody for its chorus. We don’t speak Finnish, so we’ve let Janna’s dramatic delivery of the melody to the talking talking, oh. And it’s tearing us to shreds with its delicateness, sadness, and amazingnessness. Let’s be honest here – Finnish isn’t the most “tender” of languages when it comes to popular song. So it’s a credit to ‘Läpinäkyvä’ that the song touches the listener so easily. And they seem to be aware of where the strength in the track lies – as the chorus is repeated quite a lot throughout the close of the song.
We first wrote about Janna late last year when she came out with the pretty brill ‘Sä Et Ole Hullu’. We reckon that this new one is even better though.
Here’s the video;
