Home / Biography / Tiktak


If they were slinging bouncy, Hanson-esque teenager pop or synth-driven indie rock and roll, Tiktak were able to keep their own like a staple of Finnish Best 40 radio in the first 2000s. Made up of six ladies from a music college in Helsinki (Petra, Mimmu, Emppu, Noora, Nea, and Tuuli), the bandmembers had been barely within their teenagers by enough time they got a significant record cope with Common in 1999. Their debut recording, Frendit, premiered in Finland immediately after, and the music group attempted to break right into the U.S. marketplace the following 12 months. Billing themselves at Tik N’ Tak, the group released two English-language singles, “Don’t Appear Back again” and “UGLY,” and re-released their debut beneath the name Friends. Regardless of generating rave evaluations from numerous indie critics, the recording flopped around the U.S. marketplace and Tiktak came back to Finland in 2001. The music group returned to composing tunes in Finnish on the second recording, Jotain Muuta (ANOTHER THING). Three even more albums followed more than another four years, including 2005’s Myrskyn Edella, that was nominated for Greatest Pop Recording at that year’s Emma Honours.
