Nina Sublatti – powerful, independent, oximated. These are the traits we know and love her for, and she displayed all of them perfectly during her Eurovision 2015 campaign. But listening to her new single “Locked Box”, I’m struggling to access those qualities I love. It’s almost as if the Nina Sublatti we know isn’t singing this song.

Nina Sublatti – “Locked Box”

What does this locked box hide inside? Perhaps it hides her crisp voice and sense of rhythm. Nina might be experimenting, but this ambient trap/techno mishmosh ain’t right for her, y’all! It lacks the direction and drive of Eurovision entry “Warrior”.

Nina told us that “Warrior” was written in the middle of the night in a flash of inspiration. “Locked Box” might have been conceived in the same way, but while “Warrior” was a vivid dream, this was just a haze. Simply put, it’s an avant-garde effort that needs to be forgotten.

I like it (I think) but it seems more of an album track than a single. I can hear some Bjork elements in it and it is kind of dark. It might grow on me!

I pretty much agree, there’s no chorus, just babbling and a generic beat.

I’ve loved pretty much every song she’s released, including this. This is actually probably one of my favourite releases by her.

For some reason it sounds really dated even though I’m sure she was going for an avant garde new vibe. Not for me. Then again, Warrior was too much of a jibberish screamfest for me.

She didn’t pick her best songs for her first EP imo (I prefer Dream, Sleep and Down by far). But I still like her last few ones, the style is very particular and unique, and I kinda like it.

Just because it’s not “very eurovision” doesn’t mean it need sto be forgotten. Broaden your mind to other genres and styles of music.
Music is an independent voice. So let her speak.

If you’re going to hate on a new song by a Eurovision star, hate on Ani Lorak’s new release.
