For several days Estonia‘s ERR has been flooding us with news about Eesti Laul 2016. They’re building hype — and we’re cool with that. In fact, it’s inspired us to have a listen to the first three songs to compete in Estonia’s selection, which clearly sees itself as the Melodifestivalen of the Baltics! From experimental pop to mellow balladry, the key word here is ecclectic.
I Wear* Experiment – “Patience”
First up is the somewhat mysterious song “Patience” from the (unforuntately named) group I Wear* Experiment. It has an amazing instrumental part that is touching my soul and helping my mind fly away. The lead singer says that her feet are on fire. Are you feeling the heat?
The Jingles – “Love a Little Bit”
The Jingles hope to make your heart ring with their soul guitar ballad “Love a Little Bit”. It has a sleepy, laidback vibe, but it’s clear the singers are trying to deliver a story straight from their heart. Do you love it….even a little bit?
Zebra Island – How Many Times
And now the first club mix of the year from Estonia! The curiously named Zebra Island are giving us a disco feel. Just close your eyes, chillax and let your body shake! If we ever end up on an island of zebras, we are headed straight to the club!
