In Sweden's third heat of the Melodifestivalen a very sympathetic band names Tribe Friday is going to compete. It will be exciting to see, if an indie-rock song has a chance to be the Swedish ESC entry.
The famous Melodifestivalen with great viewing figures is a place where all kind of popular music gets together. This year is no exception, in tomorrow’s third heat the indie-rock band Tribe Friday is going to perform “Shut Me Up”. Tribe Friday is one of the two band in this year’s contest. They describe their music style as upbeat songs about self-deprecation, identity, confusion, love and death are anchored by sarcasm, wit and charm.
In the third heat of the Melodifestivalen, Tribe Friday will be fighting for a place in the Grand Final on 12th March together with Lisa Miskowsky, Linda Bengtzin and Andreas Bagge, who all have experiences in the Melodifestivalen / Eurovision Song Contest (Andreas Bagge as composer for “Drip Drop”).
We had the pleasure to talk to Noah Deutschmann, who is the lead singer and guitar player. He talked about his motivation being part of the Swedish selection process. The three member band is also planning a tour in Europe in summer.
Thanks to Måneskin, the Italian winners from 2021, a lot of young people seem to be motivated to try the ESC as a platform to become well-known in Europe and beyond.
