The Ukraine broadcast UA:PBC is getting ready to select their choice for Tel Aviv and start to release their entries for the contest.
Till today, 3 songs have been revealed by Ivan NAVI, Kira Mazur, Anna Maria. Meantinme, While many Eurovision fans are waiting for the entries of Vidbir returned artists Tayanna and Kazka UA:PBC reveales this morning the 4th entry “Hate” by TseSho (ЦеШо)
What is TseSho? director of the group “Vlad Troitskyi” describes it as a “puppet cabaret”. the project seeks to create many kinds of art while act on stage frameless. Their music is born like the word in the role, through feelings and senses, connecting individual sounds in the room to a rhythm.
“Hate” their song for the national final selection is a techno track full of emotions and rage. same as in their show, the songs describe a dialogue with yourself. telling a strange connection with “you internal” and “you external while having those moments when you overflowed with emotions and hate everything.
The song’s chorus “I hate you – You Hate me” directly connects us to that inner dialog bottom. describing the strangle of climbing from the abyss, surrounding by negative feeling spread all over, singing phrases like “Hate People, Hate Art, Hate Music, Hate Eurovision, hate my voice, I even hate this song”.
At the end of the song, we hear “help” calls reflecting on us the moral of a very important subject. listen to the voice singing for help inside of you when you’re down. be brave and ask for help if needed. That’s exactly the same method Logic, Alessia Cara & Khalid did on “1-800-273-8255” of last year “TOY” reflected the #MeToo movement with sound). TseSho results, btw, is very good! the rave sounds are so addictive and natural, evolving smartly layer by layer, telling the story in every bit.
Ukraine is known for being a straight forward on the big stage with some strong statement in the past. this year they might even overcome themselves. The song can be something extremely new, never seen like on Eurovision sage. moreover, there is a nice social experiment here, too. psychologically, hearing words like “I even hate this song” will automatically bring question in the listener’s mind, “Am I?”, “Am I a hater?”, “Am I really hate Eurovision?” “Am I hate this song?”. As Eurovision lovers, most of us will answer “No” to this question, means the opposite, “I love this song”. In this way gaining the crowd support.
All we have to do now is wait for the song performance and how this important message will be delivered live.
Talking about the project, director Vlad Troitskyi says: “We liked the sound, the rhythm of that phrase in Ukrainian: TseSho? In our performance, it’s the question designed to provoke. Who are we? Who are we in this world of fake news, when you get lost in the newsfeed when you start to lose your own memories? When your heart is broken by the news of death and war and destruction, but you are far, far away?”
