Moldavian singer Vera Turcanu returns with her emotional new single“Umbrele”.
Vera Turcanu is well known to all us Eurovision fans by her three participations in “O Melodi Pentru Europa”, Moldova’s national song selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Vera’s debuted in 2015 competition singing “Faith” together with Diana Popa, but was lack to qualify for the final. Two years later, in 2017, Vera’s entry “Black Heart” almost brought her to Kyiv as she finished 2nd to DoReDos‘s “My Lucky Day”. Her last appearance last year with “Cold” ended in the 4th place. Besides Eurovision, she is also known for her participation in the X Factor Romania, The Voice of Turkey, and in the Romanian singing competition “Canta Acum Cu Mine”.

The song theme is similar to Vera’s previous songs and is talking about a toxic relationship. You can hear Vera repeat the line “te iubesc, te consum, te urasc” which means “I love you, I consume you, I hate you”. all that goes hand by hand with excellent dramatic sound production that makes vera’s singing twist your guts around with passion. a face that makes the waiting for the English version even more.
