Finland: Listen to the third song for UMK 2024!

The finnish broadcaster has released the third song competing in UMK 2024, the finnish national final for Eurovision 2024.

The song is Paskana by Sara Siipola and you can listen to it here:

Sara Siipola’s dark and soulful voice has enchanted Finns with such songs as Rohkee sydänSusta tulee tähti and one of her latest, Uusi musta.

Siipola grew up in the Ostrobothnian town of Laihia. In 2016, she graduated with a vocational qualification in business in Vaasa. Shortly thereafter, she began her singing career. Within five years, she had a raft of singles, a debut album and the music programme Tähdet Tähdet under her belt.

“I love writing songs on big topics. I really want people to be able to listen to my songs whenever they want to feel self-confident and connect with others,” says Siipola.

Her UMK entry Paskana (‘I’m a f***ing wreck’) is about a friend who loses their father and the feelings that the loss stirs up. During one evening, Siipola watched how her friend tried to be present at a dinner party after experiencing such a loss. Paskana deals with grief and lets the listener feel heartbroken: why do others go grocery shopping and go on with their lives when my own world has stopped cold? According to Siipola, the power of the song stems from the fact that it doesn’t romanticise the idea of grief, that there will be a happy ending.
