The Reviews

Brynja Mary has returned with a beautiful song and a lovely sister. I think EYJAA have the ingredients to do well at DMGP and hopefully win. “I Was Gonna Marry Him” is a beautifully haunting song. I love how Brynja and Sarah are singing a song that’s not in the genre they usually perform in. They are doing this because they can hear their voices in the song. Best of luck to my favourites x
Whilst I may not be the biggest fan of the rhyming in “I Was Gonna Marry Him”, the lyrics are extremely relatable and convey a very sweet message which I am sure will hit a chord with many people. The instrumentation is particularly memorable and an instant earworm, and Brynja and Sarah’s beautiful voices complement each other very well. I particularly love how the song incorporates so many different musical elements – I’m not sure I can even place it in a particular genre!
Denmark? Is this you? No offense to DR, but the words safe, bland and beige usually pop into my mind when I think of Dansk Melodi Grand Prix. It normally just doesn’t convince me. This, too, is relatively beige and safe, but on a whole other level. It’s got a hook, it’s modern, yet reminds me of the singalong songs of yesteryear. It’s instant and you’re focused right away when EYJAA start singing. I’d be happy if Denmark chose this!
