I love my girlbands. Especially when they sound and look as amazing as Velvet. They look like a mixture of Spice Girls, Banarama and Cosmo 4. All of which makes Velvet very nice indeed. I want the album already. The track, Tricky, scrapes a lot out of Infernal's last great offering and produces something rather cool for Eurovision. A bit too fierce for Eurovision if you ask me. Taking a look at the songwriters and all is explained! Its by the amazing Hanne Sørvaag, Niklas Bergwall and Niclas Kings. Amazing. A lot expected Surferosa to sail through to the finals but it wasn't meant to be and they'll be fighting it out once again during the second round.
Ultimately though, Surferosa have a much bigger and developed fanbased so their loyal fans will probably secure their success when the crunch comes. Which is fine as they're brilliant. However, one is always totally biased when it comes to girlbands and so I hope, to quote that ultimate PWL girlband BoyKrazy, that Velvet get through on a wing and a prayer.
