Re: LATVIA 2018

Supernova was by far an away the best quality national final in 2017. Hoping that next year is a) more of the same and b) an event I can actually make it to next year :mrgreen:

Re: LATVIA 2018

Barring the unlikely Aminata/Prāta Vētra/Musiqq comeback, I don't have much hope for Latvia next year. Maybe Dons will try again? It will have been years since Pēdējā vēstule was robbed so I could see it happening, and results from countries like Belarus this year show there is the possibility for songs in less-spoken languages such as Latvian to do well. As long as it's not Markus Riva or Samanta Tina I'll be happy though.

Re: LATVIA 2018

Latvia will use Supernova once again, but this time with a rule change: Foreign composers might be part of the composing team, as long as their work is only, at maximum, 30% of the final artistic rights.
LTV will also hold a writing camp in the next month.

Re: LATVIA 2018

Sapņu dziesma ftw!

MNTHA's song sounds like a demo. Lots of Swedish rejects, 1 Spanish reject that had sex with Despacito. Markus Riva hit a new low. The biggest improvement was made by Edgars Kreilis.

Re: LATVIA 2018

A new Samanta Tina song is one of my personal highlights of every Esk season, and she hasn't disappointed with this, probably the most creative entry into her oeuvre. I love how sparse the verses sound and the simplicity and consistency of the melody. Samanta ftw xcheer

Re: LATVIA 2018

I gave 'like' to Flashbacks, Funny Girl, Baltic, Ocean of Pain, If There Is No Love. Still haven't listened to all though, but for now it's not really enjoyable.

Re: LATVIA 2018

Haven't listened to all the songs, but from what I've heard, "Baltic" is the standout. There are a few creditable songs, but this one stands out the most. Love the sax parts.

Divi cilvēki is either her or a really good imposter.

Re: LATVIA 2018

Some real gems there, but, as it is Latvia, there's a lot of awful ones with convoluted names. It's a very interesting way to choose the songs that go through, I respect LTV for a novel approach like this!

You can also be on Draugiem!!
