Jann Wilde & Rose Avenue - Lover Lover Lover

“Lover, lover, lover, lover, lover... I want you!"

There are some bands where I can listen to maybe ten to twenty seconds of their stuff and I'm already an instant fan. I don't know how I didn't discover Jann Wilde & Rose Avenue sooner. Perhaps it's because they're from Finland, and I (quite unjustly) often forget about Finland because of all the snooze inducing "death" rock that they churn out. Mr. Wilde couldn't be further from that genre. Instead, he's inspired directly by the glam rock of my favorite band, The Ark. Strutting around the stage completely made up like a peacock, he's got charisma to spare and it shows in his songwriting. He's like Ola Salo's little brother or something (and check out this meeting [click on Jann Wilde tapasi suosikkinsa, The Ark-yhtyeen Ola Salon] of the two for a very father-son sort of vibe). The band competed in Finland's version of Melodifestivalen with the wonderful Rock'n'Roll Dreams, but ultimately didn't make it to the end. It's a shame. Lover Lover Lover is even better. Sure, it's only got a few lyrics, but it is so instant and catchy that you'll hardly notice. Expect an album review soon.
