What might Norway have to offer the Eurovision 2017 competition?
They’ll no doubt be hoping to sail through the second semi final on May 11 and into the Grand Final two nights later.
But will the combination of Norwegian producer Jowst and vocalist Aleksander Walmann be strong enough?
They’re performing a track with a title that just screams “song competition”… ‘Grab The Moment’.
Aleksander has a whole Jason Mraz vibe going on… what with his cool, soft vocals and quasi-rap. Jowst, meantime, provides the up-to-the-minute electronic production that provides the bed.
That kinda of electronic production that everyone’s seemingly doing these days… chopped, sampled vocals, beefy beats… it’s right up to the minute style-wise. But it’s a style that’s not especially groundbreaking.
Whether ‘Grab The Moment’ will progress through the semi final phase… we’re not sure.
It’s a decent enough song. But it’d have been more groundbreaking 12 months ago.
