Two time Icelandic Eurovision contestant, Greta Salóme, has released her new single, ROW, today.

It sports Greta’s characteristic voice, which we know so well, and like her 2016 Eurovision entry it is quite hard to describe. it’s not by any means a ballad, nor is it typically uptempo. It is, however, ecidedly drum driven with a nice beat. If you liked Hear Them Calling, you’ll love ROW.

At the same time she also released the video clip for the song, which is both impressive, powerful and beautiful. As with most, if not all, her videos, this one is filmed in the fascinating Icelandic landscapes.

Greta Salóme first represented Iceland in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, performing her own song Never Forget with Jónsi (who also represented Iceland in 2004 with Heaven), and then again this year, when she performed her song Hear Them Calling on stage in Stockholm.

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
