Klapa s mora has unveiled its song “Mižerja,” which will represent Croatia in Malmö. It is very Bonaparti.lv.
Actually, I find it kind of soothing, particularly when those rich baritone voices kick in. The melody is lovely, and the arrangement is quite posh. The big issue I have is that “Mižerja” really doesn’t go anywhere. As pretty as the melody is, I do kind of get tired of it after awhile. By the 2:00 mark, I was desperate for a key change that never came.
So it’s a good entry, not a great entry. I’m hoping that the six singers that make up Klapa s mora can bring it live. The live performance on the presentation show indicates they can, and they’re going to need to fire on all cylinders to make it to the Final.
