He’s the adorable Austrian who was running on air at Eurovision 2017…before running straight into the Grand Final.
And on Friday it was clear that the delectable Nathan Trent has landed safely on the ground, delivering his funky new track “Good Vibes”.
His first song since “Running on Air”, this number gets the head bobbing with a chilled out beat. Melding an electric RnB sound with a bit of reggaeton and his instantly recognisable vocals, Trent sings of irrepressible affection for his lover and how her looks and aura give him those ‘good vibes.’ Can we just say: he’s giving them to us too.
Contemporary and radio-friendly, this ear worm comes with an equally bright and cheery video that helps pulls summer into October. Staged in Vienna’s iconic Prater amusement park, he proves a triple threat, breaking into some seriously amazing shapes as he busts a move. Riding bumper cars, eating cotton candy, teasing his Miss — Nathan does it all with charisma, charm and that adorable smile. Feel dem vibes!
The Austrian sensation, who finished as runner-up on wiwibloggs’ Eurovision 2017 best dressed list, has not stopped running since Eurovision, performing at Prime Amsterdam in August and the Life Ball in Vienna.
In September, Trent hit the sunny shores of Setúbal alongside Denmark’s Anja Nissen and Switzerland’s Timebelle for the Eurovision Live Concert, showing his love for the song contest by covering winning songs from Lena and Måns Zelmerlöw. He also earned a rousing standing ovation for his cover of Salvador Sobral’s “Amar Pelos Dois” in Portuguese. Is there anything this man can’t do?!

In Setúbal, Trent took some time out to share a laugh with wiwiblogger Deban, giving us an exclusive preview of his latest track.
The contest has come and gone, but he still listens to Timebelle’s “Apollo” and Blanche’s “City Lights”. Releasing “Running on Air” in Italian and Spanish, he also said that he still loves to sing his Eurovision track, almost as much as we love listening to it on repeat.
He also told us of his plans to perform on stage in West Side Story in Innsbruck at the end of the year.
