Feli – ‘Cand rasare soarele’
Finally to close out New Music Friday. We never did forget the heartbreak of ‘Royalty’ somehow not representing Romania back in 2018. However little did people know that Feli was going through the bittersweet passage of both losing her father and impending motherhood. After reflecting that maybe Eurovision wasn’t meant to be, that hasn’t stopped Feli releasing a string of hits in the past year. Now Feli comes with a perfect anthem for the summer in ‘Cand rasare soarele’ or ‘When The Sun Rises’. With urban fusion and an addictive traditional flute breakdown this pop track is an inspiring message of hope. “The world is good and bad. You’re on your way. Blessing is when the sun rises.” It shows triumph over adversity, the story of Feli’s life and how to appreciate what we have and the opportunities we can make for ourselves.
That was the best of New Music Friday this week. Which are your favourites? Have we missed anything? We may include it in a future week! Let us know in the comments and on social media @ESCXTRA
