Moldova 2018 - Sasha Bognibov - Love



It's been a slow old September in Eurovisionia this year. What with the Swiss keeping their songs secret for now, and hardly a sniff of news doing the rounds, we've all been chomping at the bit for some sounds.

Until now.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I officially open the 2018 Eurovision Apocalypse season with my good friend and musical hero, Sasha Bognibov!

We had the teaser clip, and now we've got the full malarky. And boy what treats does it deliver. The haunted, willowy vocals are the same, but they're layered on a fractious wall of sound that canters along unsettlingly like a distracted horse, before clattering to an intense and unexpected halt.

Yes, of course we like it – it's Sasha after all - but the everlasting boy is beginning to show some sings of musical maturity that bode incredibly well for the future. We've been doing this for long enough now to know that this year almost certainly won't be his year. But that day is surely coming ever closer!

  1. There's no better way to kick off the 2018 season than with the Moldovan goth.

  2. Good to see Apocalypse up and running again!

    Do you reckon that is the best bit of his offering this year?

  3. I reckon the whole thing is likely to be a groove that pretty much sounds like this from start to finish. Maybe with a little slow bit at the start.
