The blood moon is rising! Poland has finally announced their entry for Eurovision this year, revealing singer Luna is heading to Malmö with her song “The Tower”.

Poland 2024: Luna – “The Tower”

“The Tower” is a solid electropop song, combining a hypnotic electronic sound with polished production to take the audience to a completely new cosmic music dimension, at the same time maintaining the unexpected impression of peace, harmony and authenticity. It’s art, personified, and its a great building block for what will no doubt be a stunning performance at Eurovision.

The song was made in the UK in collaboration with Fyfe and Max Cooke, specifically for the Eurovision Song Contest. Fyfe has previously written for Belgian singer Alice On The Roof.

Luna was an internal selection by the Polish broadcaster, TVP.

It’s a safe radio-friendly song that will probably do alright. I still don’t think it’s competitive enough to win though. The vibe of the music video and the sound of the song don’t really match well to me either

I actually love this. It surely is pretty standard but Luna’s vocals are beautiful and the melody itself is sweet and a bit melancholic. It has great staging potential. Definitely much better than I expected

This is a decent good-vibes bop…it does need a little adjustment…add a few Polish language lyrics somewhere and William is right the bridge needs more of a lift. A vast improvement over the basic sing-song of last year’s ‘Solo’.

It’s a safe choice, it slots nicely into the pack. It has been interesting seeing the publicity surrounding the songs which were allegedly submitted for Poland’s selection – there are so many exceptional choices, but with quite a lot of risk attached to them. It does make me think that this is the dilemma that most internal selections face and probably why we end up with so many middle-of-the-road entries at Eurovision. No-one wants to make a mistake and be laughed at. I would very much love to see more risk-taking in the competition though, it would be better off… Read more »

It’s a nice, easy-listen, radio-friendly song but considering the madness we have this year, it could get left behind. Then again the Polish diaspora could help it sneak through to the final.

Aww, that’s a cute video. Bravo.
It’s a really simple song that has a nice Chorus working up those 6ths in the melody, probably to represent to height of the “tower”. It’s a really nice musical thought. I don’t think it’s impactful enough to win ESC, but it’s one of the nicest entries of 2024 so far. I certainly prefer listening to this song compared to the screaming from Ireland this year (for instance).

Vocals need to do something live because in the studio version they don’t go anywhere and the song is building to a backing track change while her voice is pretty static the whole time? It doesn’t stand out at all right now and the chorus sounds repeated 3 times vocally.

As said by others, it’s a radio friendly song. Nothing bad but also nothing special. I prefer it to some of the joke acts selected recently, and to me it’s a shame that people wearing underwear on stage have more chances of qualifying than the Polish entry. But – this is Eurovision, and the televoters wanna laugh when watching the show. Polish song can’t really give that a fight.

I feel like there’s wasted potential here. Luna’s voice and style could have worked with a more alternative song I think. Instead we have here a mediocre song which felt like it dragged on for more than 3 minutes.

Um, have you forgotten that Poland has some friendly diaspora countries and neighbors in semi final 1 like Ukraine, Ireland, Lithuania and the uk? It could still get enough points to qualify but I think it would come second behind Lithuania in the televote for Ireland and the UK.

They will both (Lithuania and Poland) get at least 22 televote points each from Ireland and UK. There is no Latvia to mess things up. If Serbia qualified with as few as thirty something points last year, they won’t need many more to get through. But I expect Lithuania to qualify comfortably even without these guaranteed points.

I’ve come at this from a very neutral perspective as I hadn’t heard either Luna’s or Justyna’s songs before the announcement today. I have to say Luna’s song is much better than Justyna’s (I think the main difference currently is it is easier to imagine how Justyna’s song would be staged because of this clip that has been shared on twitter).

Meh, it will probably just barely qualify but this entry won’t have an impact on the competition overall. Disappointed in Poland, I’m genuinely curious as to their reasonings for choosing this song.

Justyna on the other hand, her song would’ve made an impact.

How will it qualify from Semi 1? Literally, all songs that are already known are better or neck-and-neck, while Serbia and Croatia will likely have much stronger songs?

The reason is that Luna is signed to a big record label. That’s how it works for TVP, the bigger the connection and money the bigger the chance you have to represent Poland under a “democratic” facade.

She is no wanna-be artist like Blanka with one song. She released an album in 2022, and she can sing, definitely not an industry plant.
Don’t put her down only because you don’t like the song.
I also prefer Justyna’s Witcher compared to Tower, but please have respect for Luna as an artist. All theories are just BS.

The song is radio-friendly, modern pop, but in terms of Eurovision competitiveness, this is a safe NQ. Will fight to avoid the last place in Semi 1.

I’ve just heard the song and in the first 30 seconds I was hooked. By the middle of the song I was hoping for more, and by the end I was underwhelmed. The song itsself is fresh and easy to digest, but there just isn’t enough of a journey to make it interesting. The music video is conceptual and high-fashion and I enjoy it. But the song andthe video will draw comparisons between Luna & Raiven, and in that battle Raiven will come out victorious. Not a bad effort Poland, and much better than last years racket, but this one… Read more »

I don’t usually write any comments here but seeing all the negative comments, I would like to add a few things. It’s understanable that we feel disappointed when our favorite from national selections don’t get selected to represent their countries. But this doesn’t mean we should bombard every comment section with how much we don’t want to see these artists and that we would rather see other artists. That’s a huge disrespect for the artists chosen. There is so much talent and dedication in every song, let’s just listen to them and enjoy them. Eurovision isn’t always about winning either.… Read more »

I’m not from Poland, nor do I think Witch-her would be a contender like the Polish fandom, but it would probably qualify for the final. This song, however, is not competitive at all. It is a bland/generic modern pop song you forget instantly. Nothing against Poland nor the artist, I hope she will sing well and have an interesting staging, but this simply can do well in 2024.

Hey! I’m not from Poland either 🙂 I absolutely respect your opinion. Everyone is free to criticize a song and say whether they like it or not. That’s what this contest is about. What I take issue with is that we should not make artists feel like they are unwanted or not worthy enough. For me, Eurovision is about supporting the songs you like; not throwing shade at the one you don’t like. But that’s just my opinion heh 🙂

Totally agree! For example, I liked Daniel Levy’s performance in Estonia, altough I also think he wouldn’t be competitive at Eurovision. If Estonia sent him, he would present them in a good light. Same here, maybe she is great live as Saba from Denmark. But in terms of winning, getting top 10, I just feel you should send different type of a song.

Bland English radio pop song, it’s not bad but the only way to know it is Poland and not Sweden for instance would be the country name at the corner left of the screen during Eurovision. Someone else mentions it but it’s really the same type of song as Sand from Denmark. You wouldn’t be able to tell which is which if not for the country name and in my opinion that’s not what Eurovision should be about.
