Malta’s Eurovision 2014 Entry

Malta are following up a successful 2013 Song Contest with The Lumineers… I mean, with Firelight and “Coming Home”:

Although it finished fourth in the televote, “Coming Home” scored high with the jury. It’s a decent enough alt-country song. The problem is, there are a lot of vocal parts in the arrangement and if they’re not performed perfectly, then the whole song sounds cluttered. And frankly, here it was a hot mess. “Coming Home” has potential if Firelight simplify the arrangement a bit, but as it stands, I don’t think this will garner much attention in Copenhagen.
