SWITZERLAND : LOVEBUGS – The Highest Heights
Hailing from Basel in Switzerland, five piece outfit Lovebugs have been releasing music since the early 1990s, signed originally to BMG and in later years to Warner Music. The band has enjoyed chart success on their home turf and will represent Switzerland in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with ‘The Highest Heights’ – lifted from their latest album of the same name.
The track itself sounds a little like the band/electro hybrid that Keane’s been experimenting with on their latest long-player – and it works rather well. Competent, polished pOp.
