The success of the Eurovision winning song has been remarkable – Euphoria has possibly been one of the most successful Eurovision winners ever and certainly the most successful entry in recent time. Loreen has made a name for herself not just in Sweden but also across the shores as she has been invited to multiple events in different countries to perform her hit single. Malta was also lucky enough to welcome the star during the summer months were she had her own mini concert where she was supported by Maltese Eurovision Song Contest representative Kurt Calleja and Brooke, who has recently been nominated for three Malta Music Awards.

Somehow most of the radio artists have always distanced themselves from the Eurovision Song Contest but this trend seems to be a thing of the past as the contestants in this year’s Malta Eurovision Song Contest proove with some of them having had radio hits before entering the competition. A relatively new band who is slowly emerging is Scarlet Sally, formerly known as Miss Chief. The band is made up of Janice DeBattista as the lead vocalist of the band, Luke Grech and Mathias Mallia on guitars with the former providing also the backing vocals, Joseph Axiak on bass and Lesnich Vassallo on drums. 

The band originally formed for a tribute concert of the popular band Coldplay and from then on they never looked back. The band has been doing gigs around the Islands for quite some time now but it was only recently that they decided to take things up to the next level. Their first official release came yesterday where they launched a cover version of the Eurovision Song Contest winner Euphoria. The band goes for a completely different take on what we are normally accustomed to as they perform the song acoustically – something mellower but works wonders. The vocals of Janice shine throughout the song and her soft touch make this a brilliant rendition. 

The band made sure to work on a strong arrangement and this shows as everything comes together perfectly. This goes on to show that apart from having talented individuals in the band they all work together to have the best sound possible – apart from that the video APT Malta shows the band relaxed and enjoying themselves whilst working on this cover. The band is planning to release more material in the upcoming weeks; in fact their first original single is currently at the mastering stage whilst new songs are also on the horizon for the band. To follow the latest updates from the band make sure to like their Facebook Page and follow them on Twitter. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about the local music scene.
