The Reviews

Oh yes! This is a throwback to the late 1990s whilst at the same time giving me all the vibes of 2023. It’s a modern, upbeat tune with a great back story to it (check out our interview with Filip to find out what that is). For someone as inexperienced to singing with in-ears and big stages as Filip, this sure is a stellar debut. Way to go!
One of the things at the top of my Eurovision wishlist this year was for a song inspired by house music to make it to Liverpool, and Filip’s offering everything I wanted and more! After the incredible success of Konstrakta last year, Serbia needs to send an entry that offers something a little bit different, and this combination of a catchy melody and very slick staging could result in some serious televote and jury love. Don’t let us down Serbia!
