Finland in Tel Aviv will be represented by Darude and Sebastian Rejman, whose performance of the song “Look away” won the national competion UMK19.
Darude is a Finnish DJ and record producer from Eura, Finland. His first single “Sandstorm”, released in 1999, was an instant success. Another well-known single is “Feel the beat”, which reached number one on the singles charts in Finland for 2 weeks and number five on the UK singles chart.
Both tracks were included in Darude’s debut album “Before the storm” in 2000.
A few years later, the techno artist released his second album “Rush” followed by “Label this!” (2007) and “Moments” (2015).
Darude is not the only one we will see on stage. He will bring his friend Sebastian Rejman, a Finnish singer, actor, and television host.
Rejman is known as singer and guitarist of the band The Giant Leap.
Written by the artists themselves, “Look away” is a catchy dance track. The music video was directed by Jaakko Manninen, who also directed the previous two music videos for UMK19 competing songs “Release me” and “Superman”.

Lyrics:

There is something you should know
I can’t sing a love song anymore
There’s something going on
And I can’t turn my back on it anymore

How can we go to sleep at night
And lay there in our beds?
When we know what’s going on
With the world today

Is it in my head?
Am I the only one?
Is it in my head?
When the war has just began

We look away, look away, look away, look away
Look away, look away, look away, look away
Is it in my head?
Is it in my head?
Look away, look away, no

There’s something in the air at night
That feels so different
And I don’t understand
I didn’t see this one coming

How can we go to sleep at night
And lay there in our beds?
When we know what’s going on
With the world today

Is it in my head?
Am I the only one?
Is it in my head?
When the war has just began

We look away, look away, look away, look away
Look away, look away, look away, look away
Is it in my head?
Am I the only the one?
Is it in my head?
When the war has just began
We look away, look away, look away, look away
Look away, look away, look away, look away, no
