Two-time Supernova participant Markus Riva has released his new single “Take Me Away”, an EDM-number to help lengthen the summer and give us light. Part lounge, part dance floor, the video sees Markus pull out his selfie stick to deliver three-and-a-half minutes of Riva-on-the-move-realness. Naturally that includes a few beach shots, Markus shirtless with a hula hoop, and one full-frontal (censored only by his hands). You gotta make the most of the sunshine, right? You’ll recognise snippets from his other videos — including the ones for his recent track “Too Beautiful” and his Supernova entry “Take Me Down”.

Markus Riva Take me away

The 2015 Supernova runner up knows how to bring us a good piece of Baltic pop. When he sings “I’m waiting for the one who will take take me away,” we can’t help but think, “Baby, we’ve booked the tickets!” He has identified his musical sweet spot and this sounds very Markus. His emerging identity as a musical artist has gone down a treat among Eurofans, and it’s no surprise that he is this year’s Latvian entry in the annual OGAE Second Chance Contest.

As lovers of Nordic pop music we are feeling Markus’ new song, so ”Lights on” and ”Take us down”, Mr Riva…

“Take Me Away” video

Score: 4/5

Lyrics Markus Riva – “Take me away”

A wise man told me: slow it down
All you’ve been searching for is right around
You need to take
All your chances and all your opportunities

Every king has a golden crown
Greeting people with a marching band
My goal is you
Sky’s the limit and all the possibilities

Another day after day all my all my reasons are gray
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

Another day after day all my all my reasons are grey
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

Grab my hand and then turn it to song
I wanna learn how to feel that joy
While we are young
All we need is somebody to love

Rock and roll, it is time to see the rivers flow
Stone by stone, got anywhere to go
I need to wait
And be patient to meet my goal

Another day after day all my all my reasons are grey
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

Another day after day all my all my reasons are grey
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

Mu-mu-ma-hey-ah-hey x 15

Another day after day all my all my reasons are grey
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

Another day after day all my all my reasons are grey
And till this moment I am waiting for the one who will take
Take me away
Take me away

who the heck assigned the 4/5?
this is dull, and reminds me of Robyn’s Hang with me, it’s basically a copy pasted video and I admit she wasn’t even the original kickstarter for those montages embedded in videos.
I prefer Take me down! that’s some quality sheez

@ Davve Ok dude…Cool to let us know.. But 4 me the only real news would be if Sanna was chosen by SVT to either be the hostess of Melodifestivalen 2016 or EuroVision 2016…Just one of these 2.. I did not even know about this swedish music festival until this summer.. All these music live festivals are non significant & it doesn’t matter which one will present/host them but only the name of the acts that will gonna sing live being in the line up of them.. It would be bigger & more worthy news if Sanna Nielsen was about… Read more »
