Sometimes you just want to sit around a campfire and listen to a guitar.
And at Latvia’s first rehearsal at Eurovision 2019, Carousel have converted that aesthetic for the stage.
This feels like an intimate jazz band performance. The band sound fantastic. The song is pleasant.
The performance appears to start at night but then dawn comes into the final moment as the lights warm up.
Certainly, today’s rehearsal had more progression than the performance at Supernova.
But while this is a classy, beautiful performance, it is a quiet moment.
Sometimes you need a change of pace during a semi-final and Carousel offer that.
However, in the first rehearsals we’ve seen so far, this did not have as strong an impact as others.
