Teini-Pää also called their Finnish version of ABBA hit shortly, ‘112’
The up-and-coming Finnish band Teini-Pää (which literally means “Tean Head”) has released a music video for their energetic ABBA cover. The video looks as simple as the cover itself, with very low-definition visuals, yet puts a smile on your face.
The band took the translation to Finnish quite literally: the Finnish version of ABBA’s ‘SOS’ got a name ‘112’, which is pretty much the only number any Finn, from young to old, should keep in mind. It’s Finland’s equivalent of American 911: a united phone number of police, ambulance and other emergency services.
The punk cover is predicted to be Finland’s 2020 summer hit. It is featured on Teini-Pää’s B-side of their latest seven-inch release, called Hotelliin (“Into the Hotel”). The single is co-released by Pop Antik Kustannus, Goosebumbs Records and Teinilevyt labels.
