Ukraine 2018 - Dilemma - Na Party

A Twitter account purporting to be something to do with something in Ukraine has just claimed that this song is going to take up a berth in their national selection process. And we couldn't be happier here at Apocalypse. You may have spotted our general liking for a good spot of Slavic language hip pop with a bit of a swing in it, and this one certainly fits our bill to a tee.

OK, so there's just a smudge of objectification in the video, but that's sadly par for the course in such things these days. But at the same time, it doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, and gives frequent knowing winks to its own ludicrousness throughout. Oh, and we were rather taken by the plushy puppy bossing the boys about too.

It's also another mob who like to send a gentle nod to those Zef warriors Die Antwoord, and that's never a terribly bad thing in our book. So settle in and get your nod on for three minute party on your sofa. What do you mean you don't like rap? Keep up pops! You wait 'til the first attempts at grime start filtering through!


  1. I like this - not sure how well this would go down on stage though...

    I'm sure that the manufacturers of the Ableton Push and similar are pleased to see its continued use in Eurovision after JOWST pioneered the tech last year...

  2. I have to say that I really wanted to hate this, but didn't. And neither did hubby. It's nothing original or new, but it isn't bad. Oh, and what lovely Russian accented Ukrainian they're speaking in... Oh, and on a superficial note - we've been to Ukraine and it has a plethora of attractive people. Why did they choose only one of them for this video?!
