Bad Sauna “Haluun pois”

Finland’s Bad Sauna are preparing to release their debut album Olen rikas sillä minulla on teidät on December 4th. The lead single from the album is “Haluun pois.” I don’t speak Finnish so I have no idea what is being said in the song but the driving drums, indie rock guitars, and slack rock vocals cross the language gap. Lead singer/guitarist Felix Lybeck illuminates the content of the track for us, saying they “deal with escaping reality through partying and intoxicants. Sometimes it can be so hard to cope with certain things that it’s easier just to drown your sorrows, until you find out you’ve drowned yourself completely.” It’s nice to know that ennui is a cross-culture emotion.
