This was the first song I listened to this year from the 2017 Eurovision shortlist. It’s also turned out to be a real favourite of mine.
The opening prelude hints at something special to come. The taut mystic riff in the opening bars delivers. The gentle but insistent repetition of main melodic idea creates a hypnotic effect.
There’s a hint of menace in there somewhere, making this a sophisticated contribution to the Eurovision running order.
I adore it. But it’s stage presentation lacks impact so it may struggle to win a place in the final.
