Lake Malawi have taken the Instagram-theme from their music video to the next level. During their first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019 they stood inside a series of frames that mirrored the Instagram Stories frame. They’re performing in real time and it really shows.
But this wasn’t a static performance. They also jumped out of the frames, rocked on with their guitars in and out of the frames, and used them as a background to tell a very modern and timeless story: boy loves girl, boy and girl grow up, boy and girl grow distance.
Albert’s stage presence is undeniable. His connection with the audience is palpable and he seemed to stare straight through the camera and into viewers’ eyes. His dancing is awkward — no doubt. But it actually fits perfectly with the performance and the spirit of an indie band. This is quality and it will sail into the final.
