The Peppermints—the Italian-San-Marinese quintet that will sing at Junior Eurovision 2014—have revealed a video of their song “Breaking My Heart”. The mid-tempo number talks about heartache and woe—a perennial lunchtime conversation topic for teenage girls all over Europe.
Surely our readers will relate to the topic, but will they relate to the act and the song? We think so. Raffy, Greta, Anita, Arianna, and Sara come off as real teenagers—not fame-obsessed pop stars in training. The video follows them recording their song and playing around in the studio. As for the song, it has a vintage feel that is at once universal and nostalgic. It harks back to the days of “Dirty Dancing” and and “Top Gun”.
Are the Peppermints your favourite after-dinner treat? Or are you not so into sweets? Let us know in the comments box below.
