GEORGIA : Watch Eldrine’s unapologetic video for ‘Addiction’
They were one of my personal favourite acts at Eurovision 2011 in Düsseldorf with ‘One More Day’. It’s been some time since then but the band have released a the new song ‘Addiction’ with a very direct video to accompany it.
This is another very American sounding rock song that the band do so well. Sopho knows how to sing a song with serious attitude.
With the song’s video you know from the first few seconds that you are in for a firm reality check as the main images are that of the Twin Towers in New York being attacked and people jumping to their deaths.
The video traces International stories that are only to familiar to us all. It is as if the band are holding a mirror up to the world and asking the viewer – you – to take a long hard look at what is going on in our world. They show the extremes of life from famine to obesity, from opulence to poverty, to absolute despair.
The video is filled with news footage that gives it almost a documentary feel to it.
There is no sugar-coating with the video and the song from the band. If you like a strong electric guitar rock song then you will like this. Think Foo Fighters, think Sound Garden think Evanescence and you have ‘Addiction’
This is a great song and they would be a welcomed return to Eurovision again some year!
Marks our of 12 – This has to get a 10 points.
