We Are Domi – Lights Off
This has all the hallmarks of a perfectly competent studio track that just won’t work on the HUGE Eurovision stage. It’s the latest in a long line of Czech under-performers – and much in the vein of Belgian under-achievers Hooverphonic. That said, there is also a strong whiff of ‘council-funded community musical outreach project’.
The downbeat verse truly drags, and the mid-tempo chorus doesn’t rescue things. There’s a huge amount of multi-tracked vocals for the lead singer, who might struggle to fill the stage.
Overall, she performs with all the sense of fun of somebody conducting a fire drill for a bunch of people who aren’t listening.
I could play this in the background and not notice – which isn’t going to have the housewives and husbands of Europe voting in their millions.
