Passed — the Hungarian group that met online in 2014 — stormed into the final of A Dal last spring with their very first song “Mesmerize”. They emerged as favourites to win it all with the funky track, which merged soul and sexual tension with….a harp. Even though the jury ultimately gave them zero points, the sisters Dorottya and Fanni Nizalowski and bandmate Levente Szabó have kept on moving. Armed with a new band member Áron Farkas, they’ve just released a new video for their latest single “On the Grind” — and no, it’s not about Grindr.

Then again, it is rather steamy. As they sing: “Outside it’s hot, our drinks are cool, won’t let anything ruin our mood. …There’s no need to worry, my friends aren’t in a hurry, we’re gonna smoke until we get crowned, make love when the sun is down.”

The accompanying video is fresh and stylish — a further testament that they represent a new wave in Hungarian music. (They are Passed, not passé). Among other things they sing in a shoe store and dance while wearing digital facepaint.

If “On The Grind” isn’t for you, we’re sure you can find something passable on their EP 1919.

The A Dal of Hungary was one of the best NFs Grand Prix this year on our pre contest season 🙂

Pity that Kati Wolf did not have a stronger better song on her hands that would claim her the victory & get her to Vienna..

Their song *Mesmerise* was nice…From the best songs in the bunch of A Dal 2015..
At least they deserve to get points in the final and even qualify to the super final of 4..
They just got unlucky that it didn’t work out 4 them..
Hopefully 4 them they will get more lucky in a future A Dal edition & who knows..Maybe they will win the whole thing & will go to the Vision 🙂

By the way,the 2 guys in the group band are hot babes <3 Both of them are very f**kable <3 😉
