New Music: Illuusio

If you’re wondering what language this sublime piece of dream-pop is sung in, it’s Finnish. Finland itself has long been a hotbed of pop talent, but rarely do songs get the traction they deserve when they aren’t performed in English.

Somehow though I have a feeling that Illuusio could change that. Despite not understanding the lyrics, this song has such a powerful emotive flow that it’s easy to feel moved by what you hear.

“The Finnish lyrics tell a sweet story about the euphoric feeling of falling in love overnight, and the bitterness of a heartbreak.”
