Australian representative for Eurovision Song Contest 2021 Montaigne drops today her entry “Technicolour”.
The song was co-written by Montaigne together with her Dave Hammer. talking about the song the 25 year-old singer was queued “I’m so excited to present Technicolour to the world! I think it does it all – makes you want to cry, makes you want to dance, makes you want to take on a malignant corporate power – and I think that it is both forward-thinking and suitable for Eurovision.”:
She continues and describe her road so far: “I initially started writing the song after a catch-up call with my mum that was really emotional and had me crying on the floor thinking of that first line, ‘I want to be close to my mother.’ I picked up my guitar and started improvising around that, trying to get the feelings out of my system. I had to put the song down then because we were having people over for dinner. Later, I picked the idea up with songwriter and music producer, Dave Hammer, since we were working on trying to make a Eurovision song happen, and the song became about resilience and the courage that comes from being able to be vulnerable, being able to ask for help, and knowing that in solidarity and togetherness we are stronger as people.”
