Eurovision 2019 is starting to feel a lot closer following the recent reveals of several internally selected songs. Songs from The Netherlands and Switzerland have made an impact on betting odds, while others like San Marino and Cyprus have been well received by the fandom. One country yet to release is Armenia. Srbuk was the first Eurovision 2019 artist announced but we’ve had to wait for her song. She has now revealed the song will be called “Walking Out”, as well as tantalising us with a teaser.
“Walking Out” teaser — Srbuk
The teaser gives us a taste of the musicality behind “Walking Out”. There is a heavy percussion element in the teaser, suggesting big beats in an upbeat song. While we don’t get to hear Srbuk singing in the teaser, the percussion sounds give us a taste of the direction she could take “Walking Out”. There’s the possibility of a pop banger or a song with heavy drum backing.
The visuals in the teaser are equally exciting. Srbuk is rocking a fierce pose centre stage, backed by a group of men dressed in black, holding transparent red boards over their faces. This imagery could suggest a theatrical effort and gives us a taste of what we might expect to see on stage from Srbuk. This Armenian queen looks in place with her warrior pose and is ready to slay in Tel Aviv.
