Mo’s Eurovision Countdown 2022 – Part 14 – France

Alvan & Ahez – Fulenn

The song tackles the Breton legend of a young woman who emancipates herself from societal norms by dancing at night bathed in the light from a bonfire. As you do.

It’s certainly a change of pace for La France and rather different to most anything else on offer at this year’s contest. Alvan is a very tall man and appears to be having the time of his demonic life. Ahez, meanwhile look like they run a pop-up artisan hummus stall in Boulogne sur mer.

They seem lovely but it’s the musical equivalent of eating vegetables you’ve grown yourself and pretending to like them.

I know it shouldn’t, but it puts me in mind of those awful drum-based things Bulgaria used to like sending, with a sprinkle of Ruslana. That awful brand of joyless music that’s meant to be good for you, like bran cereal.

I believe this is known as World Music and whilst it’s likely to have its fans. I am not one.

Mo’s Score.  0 Points
