The Spyro - Teleport My Heart

Well, this is perhaps the closest I am ever going to get to featuring a Eurovision track on the blog (sorry, Waldo's People)

"Teleport My Heart" by 5-piece The Spyro is one of the 40 tracks in contention to be Finland's entry in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, although given that the track is very much out of step with what you might expect from a Eurovision entry, I'm not sure whether they will receive the nomination (even though this is the same country that gave us Lordi).

Still, "Teleport My Heart" is an endearing indie-rock track, which takes in influences from Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, and countless other Anglo-American indie based bands, with one eye trained on the dance floors, and the other as the soundtrack for summer-themed teen comedies.
