The Rasmus team up with Finnish Eurovision entry Blind Channel to cover ‘Dark Side’

Blind Channel's song secured them sixth place in the 2021 Eurovision final

The Rasmus‘ frontman Lauri Ylönen has joined forces with Blind Channel vocalists Niko Vilhelm and Joel Hokka for a cover of the band’s Eurovision entry, ‘Dark Side’.

The Finnish musicians shared their bedroom-recorded re-versioning of the song, which earned Blind Channel the sixth spot on the final of this year’s song contest. Watch it below.

Hokka from Blind Channel said: “Lauri and The Rasmus are hands off – one of the most legendary Finnish rock exports. I remember as a kid watching those black feathers on TV and jammin’ ‘Dead Letters’. When Lauri called me and asked for a collab we couldn’t say no.”
