Finland: Interview with Cyan Kicks | The right time for Eurovision and “Hurricane”! (Video)

Following their selection for this year’s national final in Finland, Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2022, Cyan Kicks talk exclusively to EurovisionFun, Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Cyan Kicks are among the seven finalists in Finland‘s national final for Eurovision 2022, and will try to represent their country with the song “Hurricane”.

We had been thinking about participating in UMK for four years but we never felt confident about it. This year we felt stronger since we have already released several songs. We have long wanted to write a song that would push us far as a band and as individuals and that’s how Hurricane came about. It happened completely naturally. We are very proud of it.

Regarding the stage presentation of the song in the national final, they state that:

We can’t say much. All we can say is that something very special and magical is going to happen that you are definitely not expecting. Something you don’t expect to see from a rock band. It will be a surprise!

Even though they like all the songs from UMK 2022, they like more the ones by Bess and Isaac Sene.

Their favourite Finnish entry is that of Lordi (2006), while from the competition in general they single out Loreen (Sweden 2012) and ABBA (Sweden 1974).

Just before the end of the interview, Cyan Kicks shared with us an acapella part of their participation.
