When I think of Cascada, I think of three words: party, glamour, and bass. With the premier of their new song “Blink”, that trend continues. This song features slick beats, juiced up production, and, of course, Natalie’s infectious charm and powerhouse vocals. And yes: she CAN sing. The hate towards her live performance in Malmö was totally unwarranted.

After a few full listens to take everything in, it’s clear that this is Cascada “by the numbers”. However, there are a few interesting twists added to the mix that really elevate the song. As always, Cascada brings the heavy bass beats (my laptop was literally vibrating, y’all!). The infectious backing track makes for another dance-floor staple. It has real oomph.

cascada deutschland lyrics eurovision gloriousDuring the instrumental part of the chorus, there is a semi-faint “oh woah oh oh” choral sample, similar to the one in “Till The World Ends” by the legendary Miss Britney Spears. This gives the song a bit of an anthem-like quality.  Natalie’s vocals come into focus right before the chorus, and that really adds to the build-up of the first “BOOM”.

The lyrics are fairly simple, but with the production of the song it would be odd if they were overly sophisticated. This ain’t no poem inside of a song, nor should it be. The message is relatable: there are some moments in life that are so nice yet so sudden that they can be gone in the blink of an eye. (For me that feeling was Nina Badric, who should have gotten to perform that masterpiece twice at ESC ’12… no accounting for taste I guess….)

All in all, this is slick, dance-able, and 110 percent Cascada. Given how addictive their repertoire is, you don’t really want it any other way.

Rating: 9.5/10

Dear Easpag. “Hate” is not warranted anywhere, especially not in Eurovision.

The fact is… If it weren’t for the fact that she was sick on the night of the contest, the vocals would have been top notch. @Easpag

Natalie put in a great performance at Malmo. She has a excellent voice. Glorious was the most exciting, high energy song in the Grand Final.

Can’t stand this type of music. Dancey with meaningless lyrics. And that’s basically everything Cascada releases.

I generally don’t like this sort of fizzy dance pop music, but this isn’t a bad effort.

And I’m sorry, but the hate towards her performance in Malmo was completely warranted. Her vocals were awful that night.
