A new sound for Jakub

Space Sushi is a new sound for Jakub, who is most known for his guitar-led tracks. This single will “see him dance” with its electronic dance sounds. Talking about the meaning of the song, Jakub explains there’s a message of motivation and perseverance (translated from Czech):

Space Sushi is an incentive for all lazy people to get things done. Space Sushi is a metaphor. For each of us, something else is hidden underneath what we’re doing. For an actor, it’s winning an Oscar. For a father, it’s a house for his family. It is, in fact, a dream to get work done. 

Final line-up revealed on January 7

We’ll find out whether Jakub is amongst the final six ESCZ contenders on January 7th. On this date, ฤŒT will hold a press conference to reveal the participants of ESCZ 2019!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
