Malta: Scar Scaling the 89.7 Bay Local Chart

One of the most difficult elements that the Public Broadcasting Services has faced during the years is the opportunity to get bands to participate in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest but then again, this eventually changed slightly back in 2007 when the popular band Scar submitted the track As Long As You Know, making it through the semi-final stage, eventually finishing in sixth place following a public say in the proceedings. Since then though, the group has been somewhat inclined to release more material having attracted more listeners to their pop/rock kind of music with a funky guitar and drums sound somewhere in between. Their latest release off their album Breaking Radio Silence bears the name White Lie and now finds itself at number #1 in this weeks' local chart on 89.7 Bay for the second week in a row following a three week stint by former Eurovision Song Contest representative Ira Losco with her latest single What I'd Give.

Scar have enjoyed major success throughout their career noting that their establishment came quite some time ago. Nevertheless, they have managed to keep with their relatively strong standards whilst still adapting to the present generation. It will be quite intriguing on whether White Lie will manage to keep its' position for yet another week in a couple of days time but we will be keeping an eye out to see what happens. In the meantime, Konrad Pule himself also participated in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest as a soloist in 2000 with the track Going Strong and also in 2003 with the song Everywhere You Go. It is also to be noted that he was the composer of the song Searching The Seas for Karen Polidano way back in 1998 meaning that his career in the competition dates back quite a while. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.

Malta: 'White Lie' Released by Scar

It seems to be somewhat a year in which comebacks are back in fashion especially when it comes to music noting the return of Ira Losco earlier this year with her signature summer track What I'd Give but then again, it seems that artists who have a connection with the Malta Eurovision Song Contest are continuing to develop their own style more and rather being true to themselves and their fans who know that loyalty is key to success when it comes to music. The group that had made a comeback is Scar and the track which they have just released bears the name White Lie comprising of a soft guitar in the backdrop of husky vocals which create a dark yet extremely invigorating ambiance.

The band does not need to be introduced especially having been around in the local music scene for around thirteen years in total now managing successful feats in Italy as much as they have in Malta especially when it comes to the RAI Radio Station where their track Time To Know was being used as a jingle for one of the programmes which was broadcast. Nevertheless, the band grew in experience through time and continuously succeeded in presenting people their best material. Following a number of local appearances in all of the events organized in the country by major companies, in 2005, the band signed a distribution deal with Cargo Records based in Germany in order to sell their albums abroad achieving extremely positive feedback from the foreign media on the records that they were releasing on a consistent basis. It is also important to note that they did what no other band has did and that is take part in the Malta Song for Europe competition with the song As Long As You Know finishing in sixth place behind Olivia Lewis back in 2007. This brand new single entitled White Lie is the eighth single off their sophomore record Breaking Radio Silence and will most likely be the last release preceding brand new material in the coming months. It is currently ranked at position number #7 in the local music charts on 89.7 Bay. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more new releases from local artists.
