Ira Losco triumphed at MESC back in January with “Chameleon (Invincible)”, and last night she shed her musical skin altogether, debuting her new entry “Walk On Water“. Co-written by two-time #Melfest star Molly Pettersson Hammar, the entry has received a strong reaction from fans. Some say it’s a masterpiece that and that Malta might finally be on track for a long overdue victory. Others say meh, I preferred “Chameleon”.
The songs are at totally opposite ends of the spectrum. “Chameleon” radiates fierce electropop darkness, pulsing with the kind of musical electricity that made Ira’s victory in Malta inevitable. With “Walk on Water” Ira embraces soul, drum ‘n bass and gospel.
