Back in October, Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG announced that boyband Highway would represent the Balkan nation in Stockholm this year. We’ve had hints as to what we can expect from these boys as they take on the first semi-final in 2016, but finally RTCG has given an official date for the song reveal: March 4th.
The band recently shot a music video for their song. Speaking to Eurovision.TV, director Julian Wood revealed that the concept of the video would be similar to the staging concept the band will use in Stockholm.
Highway member Marko Pesic said, “We want to show all the energy we have as a band. That’s what this video is supposed to show, including some effects, which fit well with the format of our song.”
As a trio, the group got their big break on X-Factor Adria in 2015. They were known for their pop-rock styles, which continued with the trio’s debut single, “Sam”.
Highway are now a foursome, joined by Bojan Jovovic, who represented Serbia and Montenegro in 2005 as part of the Balkan boyband No Name.
With Highway bringing a rock sound to Stockholm, will they be joining the likes of Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz from Georgia and Minus One from Cyprus in making 2016 the year of the Eurovision Rock Contest? We’ll find out what they have to offer on March 4!
