What’s this? Finnish pop icon Erika Vikman is back today with a brand-new single and video. ‘Syntisten Pöytä’.
What dat mean? The Table of Sinners. Would you like to take a seat?
Having heard ‘Cicciolina’, I will say yes without hesitating. And this new single proves that ‘Cicciolina’ was no fluke. It features a bit of synthpop, a splash of disco and a dash of schlager. It’s fuelled by drama throughout, and staggers towards the finish line by turning into an all-out ABBA song, utterly shamelessly. It’s absolutely brilliant.
Written by? Janne Rintala, Kaisa Korhonen and Mika Laakkonen.
More from Erika Vikman? Eurovision 2021, if the great people of Finland have any sense!
