Latvia 2018 - Katrina Gupalo & the Black Birds - Intoxicating Caramel

So when the Latvian songs were revealed to us in that secret back of house vote up the other week, this is the one that stuck in my head the longest. But I'm not sure if it was entirely for the right reasons. But boy there's a whole lot going on.

If you've got the tools to imagine this, picture a car boot Kate Bush singing cruise liner showtunes, in the fifties, in flouro techno garb, and with Oxford prog psych loons The Cardiacs occasionally popping by to say hello. Kind of. Only it's stranger than that.

We were surprised yet delighted to discover that it had televised portion of the process, because one can only wonder at how they're ever going to flipping stage this little beauty - although the newly released video hints that there will be considerable portions of unsettling oddness. Our first properly unhinged entry of the year!
