Who will represent Moldova at Eurovision 2013 in Malmo, Sweden? Well National Broadcaster TRM have just released the first successful 9 songs that will compete in their National Selection process – and we have Irish interest. Follow the link below to listen to all the songs
- FireLove – “Just smile” – A 5 piece band with a female lead singer. A funky rock/pop song. In the same vein as American college rock bands.
- Paşa Valeria – “Show me your feelings” – A contemporary soul ballad with a subtle rap. Reminds me of Ashanti and Shola Ama
- Aliona Moon – “A milion” – An orchestral power ballad. It has the hint of 80’s British singer Beverley Craven
- Stela Boţan – “Inima mea” – A gentle rock ballad that you could imagine American band “Heart” performing.
- Cristina Scarlat – “I pray” – A sombre ballad that has religious connotations in the lyrics. I could see PJ Harvey singing this.
- Cristina Croitoru & Karizma – “Never fall again” – An ethno/pop song that starts off slow and then builds for the chorus. The vocals don’t come into the song until after 1 minute. Good harmonies from Cristina and Karizma
- Felicia Dunaf – “Codename Felice” – mid tempo dance/ballad with a dub-step beat. Slightly like Rita Ora in sound
- Aurel Chirtoacă – “Iartă-mă” – A good rock ballad that sounds like it could be taken from a Def Leppard album.
February 26th and 28th will see 12 acts in each semi final looking for a place in the grand final on 2 March.
