Since winning the Czech Republic’s ESCZ last December, We Are Domi have been steadily making preparations for Eurovision 2022. The latest step on this journey is the release of the music video for their entry “Lights Off”.
We Are Domi coordinated the release of the music video so that it happened exactly at the same time as sundown in Prague – when the light went out.

The “Lights Off” music video is set in a world where people are controlled by ear pieces. Any action that goes against the flow – including dancing and kissing – is not allowed and guards are on hand to bring everyone back into line. This ties in nicely with the song’s lyric “once again I’m left without control”.
However, We Are Domi’s vocalist, Dominika Hašková, begins to become conscious about everything that’s happening. She’s able to take her ear piece off and breathe freely for the first time whilst singing about the power she has an induvial: “I’ll ring thе changes, make a plan / I’m small but mighty, yes I can”.
The guards eventually catch up with Dominika. But help is on hand thanks to the electro-pop group’s instrumentalists Casper Hatlestad and Benjamin Rekstad – they’ve been leading a resistance against the controllers and deactivate everyone else’s ear pieces as well.
The music video includes the newly revamped version of “Lights Off”. There hasn’t been a massive overhaul, but there are a few small changes.
The main noticeable difference comes during the second pre-chorus. After Dominika sings “so I turn the lights off”, a pause has been added in the song. It is likely that We Are Domi plan on having a “Lights Off” moment during their performance at Eurovision in Turin. We saw a similar thing when the Czech-Norwegian group performed the revamped version for the first time at the grand final of Romania’s Selecția Națională 2022.
Otherwise, there are some minor alterations to the production of the final chorus that help give it an extra kick.
