Through the 8 o’clock news bulletin, the Public Broadcasting Services gave the first airplay to “Walk On Water“, an original song co-written by Lisa Desmond, Tim Larsson, Tobias Lundgren, Molly Pettersson-Hammar and Ira Losco, the latter of which was chosen as the representative through the Malta Eurovision Song Contest which took place at the Mediterranean Conference Centre back in January. Reception thus far has been extremely positive, with the bookmakers instilling a positive outlook on Malta’s chances for success at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.
From an objective point of view, “Walk On Water” is a modern pop song, with hints of dance and soul, not too different from the genres scaling the charts all over the world at the moment, noting the relevant success of acts such as Sigma and Emeli Sande. The highlight of the song, apart from the rousing beat, is the last minute which features soaring vocals.
The music video, features the female singer/songwriter in various outfits, accompanied by a male dancer most of the time in several locations in Malta and Gozo. It is very well produced, and adds an aura of professionalism towards the effort that the people behind Malta’s participation in the international competition is putting.
