Russia 2012 - The UPS! - Kiss
Russia's vast list of finalists was finally released yesterday, and while the names of Bilan & Volkova, Buranovskiye Babushki (the folky nans!) and Jet Kids are the headline names, this likely little bunch are the first to have made their song public. And a bouncy little number it is too.
Describing themselves rather sweetly as hooligan-pop, their crazy-legged burlesquey crunch could make quite the stir on the big night, although drawn perilously early in the fourth slot, they might be sadly overlooked when it comes to voting time.
Still, we'll enjoy it while we can - if for nothing else than the guitarist's insane dance shapes!
