Softengine formed in the summer of 2011 with lead singer Topi Latukka. Since then, the band has seen a number of changes, played a number of venues, and achieving success in band competitions throughout Finland; but nothing as accomplished as winning the vote to represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest.

The band completed and recorded their entry Something better days before the deadline of the Finnish national selection Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu 2014 (UMK), where they ultimately won the national final with top marks from both the jury and public voting, securing their spot on the stage in Copenhagen.

The current band members include lead vocalist Topi Latukka, Ossi Mäkelä, Eero Keskinen, Henri Oskár, and Tuomo Alarinta. The group will take the stage on 8 May for the second semi-final to perform their rock-inspired track Something better.

Want to sing-a-long? Well you can! Please find below the lyrics to Something better.

Even human bound, people rolling dice.
Image on the ground, such a novel life, he thought,
while knowing nothing at all.
Every option noted or tendency made,
they will carry on until the perfect date, she said,
while knowing nothing at all.

All the rules well known, they mean nothing to me.
Everything I’m used to seems to be
fine misshapen made up fantasy,
should let go, should let go!

But we found something better,
plain answer however,
for I’ll not surrender.
We found something better.

Vis-à-vis estranged and we got close.
Trust full of lies, sure how it goes, they told,
while knowing nothing at all.
Talking loud ’bout future in our hands.
Exchanging dreams and how they’ll last, no no,
still knowing nothing at all.

But we found something better.
plain answer however,
for I’ll not surrender.
We found something better.

All these words reflected back to me.
All these words, I’m buying, why?
All these words, the lives grand mystery.
All these words a sweet white lie!
All these words she meant to say to me.
All these words against my faith.
All these words, before she passed away.
All these words, will never never never change.

We found something better.
plain answer however,
for I’ll not surrender.
We found something better.
We found!
We found!
We found!
We found, we found, we found, we found! We found!
