They met on the road to Eurovision 2017 and have remained dear friends ever since.

And now Poland’s Kasia Mos and Finland’s Norma John have taken their relationship to another level, releasing a gorgeous music video for their new single and first collaboration “Wild Eyes”.

Released on Tuesday, the video is a celebration of nature — and a reminder that man’s indifference puts the environment and its inhabitants at risk.

Writing in the YouTube description, Kasia nods to naturalist Jane Goodall and asks you to remember the fact nature sustains each of our lives.

“Anyone thinking they’re the centre of the universe forgets one simple truth: when humankind perishes, nature will survive, but when nature is gone — people die with it”.

“We’re an inseparable part of the natural world and yet we still don’t have enough respect towards it. We pursue wealth and happiness, but aren’t these efforts devastating for the environment? Aren’t we trying to wash the guilt away?”

“Every single action matters and can improve our lives – let’s not forget that Earth is the only planet we’ve got so far. As Jane Goodall once said: ‘Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.'”

Writing on their own Instagram account, Norma John — that’s pianist Lasse Piirainen and vocalist Leena Tirronen — re-iterated Kasia’s central message.

“It’s about respecting nature, celebrating and appreciating its diversity. Take a moment of silence and think about how beautiful our mother nature is.”

 

Kasia’s passion for nature and wildlife was a central theme of her tour leading up to Eurovision 2017.

She spoke with me immediately after her performance at the Eurovision Pre-Party Riga 2017, in March, explaining that she wanted her song “Flashlight” to raise awareness about animal cruelty.

“When I was writing the song with the guys I was thinking about animals because animals are very important to me,” she said.

“Their rights will always be my passion. I have five dogs right now and two cats and I cannot believe that in the 21st century in Poland we still have dogs on chains, people wear fur, people hunt for animals — for me this is so terrible, disgusting.”

Are you loving Kasia’s collaboration with Norma John? Do you hope the Polish star and the Finnish duo will produce more music? Let us know in the comments box below. 

Wild Eyes lyrics — Kasia Mos feat. Norma John

Silence, silence
Silence, silence

[Verse 1: Leena]
I’ve been everywhere looking for a reason to stay
Haunted by the fear of never finding my way

[Pre-Chorus 1: Leena & Lasse]
It’s been raining for days now, my darling
I wish I could stop the sky from falling
I’ve been everywhere looking for a reason to stay

[Chorus]
Now we’re standing in silence, silence
Now we’re standing in silence, silence

[Verse 2: Kasia]
Trying to find if there’s still a spark underneath
Burning up like the cigarette between your teeth

[Pre-Chorus 2: Kasia & Lasse]
Never to fall at your feet
And I can barely see you staring at me
Trying to find if there’s still a spark underneath

[Chorus]
Now we’re standing in silence, silence
Now we’re standing in silence, silence

[Bridge]
Come feel wild eyes
Come feel wild eyes
Come feel wild eyes
Come feel wild eyes

[Chorus]
Now we’re standing in silence, silence
Now we’re standing in silence, silence
Now we’re standing in silence, silence
Now we’re standing in silence, silence

(Come feel wild eyes)
(Come feel wild eyes)
(Come feel wild eyes)
(Come feel wild eyes)

[Outro]
Silence, silence
Silence, silence

I love her so much since Eurovision 2017, she has the biggest heart for animals, incredible character and beautiful, powerful voice. This duet is everything. I can’t wait to hear another Kasia’s album I hope it will be possible even this year.
