Ivan and Gabriel Broggini, the brothers better known to Eurovision fans as Sinplus, narrowly missed a spot in the Eurovision final in 2012. And then Lys Assia had the nerve to tell us on camera that she would have fared better. Way to kick the boys when they’re down…

In any event, Sinplus have risen from the ashes (created, no doubt, in the Land of Fire). They tell us that repeatedly in their new single “Phoenix from the Ashes”, which appears on their forthcoming album Up to Me. It drops on January 17. If this single is any indicator, then it will include plenty of inspirational lyrics. This song is all about picking yourself up and dusting yourself off, and putting your teeth into the fight.

They may seem like two cool cats—watch our video interview here—but they’ve had some serious drama in their lives, y’all. Here’s what they told us in a separate phone interview after winning the Swiss national:

The message is, ‘Don’t let life events get you down.’ You have to try to fight them and come out stronger. For me and my brother there’s also a personal meaning with the song. We played so much and made so much music, but the chances to share our music weren’t really there because we are in a small, small country where music is not so followed. We feel a little unbreakable.

You can watch the lyrics video below. What do you think of the song?

Phoenix from the Ashes Lyrics:

Tonight
I’m gonna bet on me
Because I feel like a phoenix from the ashes
Because I feel like a phoenix from the ashes

I’m a believer, can’t stop the riot
I’m a believer, up from the fire
I’m not afraid to die
No nothing can stop this war

No ashes to ashes
No dust to dust
No nothing can stop this war
Beacause I feel like a phoenix from the ashes
Because I feel like a phoenix from the ashes

And I don’t think, think about tomorrow
Ohhhh ohh
So rise with me like a phoenix from the ashes
So rise with me…

Are you ready to fight?
Are you ready to fight
No nothing can stop this now
Stop this now
Stop me now

Tonight
I’ll bet on me
And now I feel like a phoenix from the ashes
And now I feel now I feel like a phoenix from the ashes

So rise with me
So rise with me
So rise with me
So rise with me

Rise with me
Phoenix from the ashes
Are you ready to fight
Phoneix from the ashes
Are you ready to fight?

So rise with me
Rise with me
Rise with me

Yeah…

I friggin’ love this tune. Their diction has also improved loads. They remind me of a Canadian band here called The Midway State & a bit of Snow Patrol.. those sort of influences 🙂
