Divus Julius presents: Måneskin

With their raw, energetic and distorted sound, Måneskin are bringing rock’n’roll back to the top of international charts with a contemporary twist.

Måneskin is an almost unnervingly lithe band of 20-somethings who can squeeze into ’70s David Bowie bodysuits (or, as is often the case at photo shoots, squeeze out of them). It emerged victorious at 2021’s Eurovision Song. But Måneskin is an anomaly in a rap- and pop-driven era: a guitar/bass/drums combo indebted to Queen and T. Rex that performs largely in Italian and whose breakout U.S. single was a cover of the Four Seasons’ oldies staple “Beggin’.”

Hit of the week: Daði Freyr ‘Think About Things

Iceland’s Eurovision entry this year is undoubtedly the song and video you’ve been seeing all over the internet. Lead by Daði Freyr, the synth pop banger has blown up online, even getting its own  dance challenge on self-isolation-app-of-the-moment Tik Tok.

Now, following the news that Eurovision has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Daði is officially releasing ‘Think About Things’, giving us a well needed bit of synth-pop goodness.
