Belarus’s song for 2017 has an arresting start making you make all sorts of assumptions about what’s to come. Somewhere in the middle of the first verse I put those assumptions to one side, and settled myself into the irresistibly uplifting chorus.
There’s a rawness to the finished product which is makes this song utterly compelling. The stage presentation is inventive without cheapening the song either. I really hope it secures a place in the final.
