Latvia 2014 - Ralfs Eilands & Valters Pūce - Revelation
This qualifier from Latvia at the weekend is quite splendid. What starts out as an unsettling and claustrophobic little piece of weird gentleness suddenly kicks into a massive chunk of string-driven baroque 'n' roll, before soaring to a cacophonous megaphone bellow and a sudden unexpected jolt at the end.
It's the kind of song you only really get from the Baltics and is practically impossible to pigeonhole. So I won't - just watch it and enjoy it. I can't take my eyes off it.
