Musiqq might have not had much success at Eurovision 2011 , when they represented Latvia with “Angel In Disguise“. But their angel appears to have unmasked herself and is now helping them reach their full potential. Last year Marats and Emils released their second album “Vel viena muzika” and their singles “Sekundes” and “Dari ka es” have achieved millions of views on YouTube. Fly, baby, fly…
Now the duo is taking a new turn. This week they released “Silta Sirds” (Warm Heart) — the lead single from their third album. The song – and the album – is totally acoustic, which marks a daring and surprisingly effective departure from their uptempo hits.
Emils and Marats told Latvian site tvnet.lv that “the song is a true and sentimental story about how every one of us is capable of making the world better and can make their loved one’s, relatives’, friends’ and colleagues’ day better with a smile and positive emotions”.
Along with the new album, Musiqq will tour Latvia in December. They’ll play their old hits with the new acoustic songs. Maybe they will even include their Eurovision entry “Angel in Disguise” to the set list as well?
