Belarus – Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak has been working on the potential Eurovision 2015 entry for Belarus with the newly formed girl band Milki and the fruits of their work are now on video.
Rybak told Eurovision Ireland in Malta recently that he auditioned hundreds of hopefuls in Belarus and as a result created the all girl group Milki. The band have submitted the song ‘Accent’ into the Belarus National Selection for Eurovision 2015.
The song is essentially saying “Instead of hiding our accent, let’s sing about it!” The song is written by Alexander Rybak and performed by the Belarussian group Milki (“The Cuties”) and produced by Amir Aly.
Amir Aly is a Swedish songwriter and record producer. He has worked with some of the foremost artists in Sweden, including Jill Johnson, Shirley Clamp,Sonja Aldén, Nanne Grönvall, Uno Svenningsson and Felicia Olsson. In 2008 and 2009, Aly had a total of four songs in the Swedish semifinals to the Eurovision Song Contest (Melodifestivalen).
Aly has produced three tracks on the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, Alexander Rybak’s album (Fairytales) – “Funny Little World”, “Roll With The Wind” and “If You Were Gone”.
In 2010, the second album from Alexander Rybak, No Boundaries, was released and this time the whole album was recorded, mixed and produced by Aly.
This is a cheeky little pop song with my favourite instrument at Eurovision ‘The Accordion’. Pop meets traditional Eastern European music. Think of this as ‘Solayoh’ meets ‘My Słowianie’. You will either love it loath it – I personally love an ‘Accent’ on a date!
What do you think of ‘Accent’? Will it make the Belarussian national final? Could the song win Eurovision again for Rybak?
