Semi final 2
Song: Rain of Revolution
Word of the day
Taip - Yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
The highlight of this song is the subdued backing vocals at the end of the chorus when Viktorija Ivanovskaja is cutting sick with the “Yeahs”. The low-light is that this is considered Alternative music, yet there is a fair bit of Beyonce in there.
According to the supplied bio on Fusedmarc, “In 2005 they were called the Breakthrough of the Lithuanian Alternative scene”. What is Alternative? This has so many contemporary elements that it is hard to disassociate it from the mainstream. It is not even interesting like Rona Nusliu was when she represented Albania. Luthuanians can get interesting, but this is not an example of that.
Stasys Žakas job within Fusedmarc is to create the visuals, so this could yet produce something amazing. Pretentious maybe, but potentially interesting.
Fusedmarc is not first attempt at being less mainstream. We are all owed an explanation for 2002
