Back in February, a few days before Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät‘s victory at the Finnish national final, their lead singer Kari Aalto sat down with Finland’s 2012 Eurovision representative Krista Siegfrids to get to know her and see if the “Marry Me” singer had any advice.
Kari gets down to business with Krista, discussing her musical influences, relationships (she shows off her brand new engagement ring), his love of “Thai massage thingies” and motorbikes.
Kari has a wicked sense of humour and Krista shares some laughs with him. He asks if her musical idols are Madonna and saucy ’80s pop divas Sabrina and Samantha Fox, which makes us wonder if this crusty old punk is secretly a fan of ’80s HI-NRG pop.
It’s a really sweet interview, and like Krista did in Malmö in 2013, Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät is sure to give a memorable performance in Vienna. They are much more than a backstory, y’all.
