Blanche – City Lights

Quite honestly, I never expected I’d mention the Eurovision Song Contest as much as I have recently. Earlier I mentioned the B side to Levina’s Perfect Life and recommended Swedish runner-up Nano. Today, I want to point your attention to Blanche, who will represent Belgium in Kiev.

Blanche’s real name is Ellie Delvaux. She’s only 17 years old and hails from the Belgian bilingual capital of Brussels. However, her track City Lights is sung neither in Dutch nor in French. I think this could very well have been a track by Birdy, but although it bears resemblance to Éclat by Alexe Gaudreault, it’s claimed to be an original song (which is one of the requirements for participating the Eurovision Song Contest). I really like it!
