ARMENIA EUROVISION 2022 - REACTING TO 'SNAP' BY ROSA LINN

Hi guys! Welcome back to my channel! If you’re new here, my name’s Rachel and I’m a huge Eurovision fan. In todays video, I reacted to Armenia's song for ESC 2022, ‘Snap' by Rosa Linn.

This song took me by surprise as I usually have a set expectation for Armenia - ethnic bop with plenty of tradition and Armenian culture, or a sultry ballad that brings lots of tension and wonderful musical ideas. Instead, they've opted for a very indie sound, reminiscent of the early 2010's scene - think Lumineers or Ben Howard. And I love it.

The main reason why I really liked 'Snap', was the clever way to which the melody was developed and spun out to stop the song from becoming repetitive or motionless. They took a simple hook 'Snapping 1,2' and then from there, used techniques such as sequencing, and theme-variation. Really great stuff!

The movement in the melody also married nicely with the lyrics, I'm always one for pictorial approach in song writing. Yes, the chords weren't too exploratory and did stick to roughly four, but I do think the other musical elements make up for that.

The wonderful organic feel of the instruments - piano used in the upper register, layered guitars with potentially a ukulele, and a very raw drum with more kick than snare, really created a brilliant soundscape. And the star of the show was the vocals, which were expressive and provided wonderful harmonies in the background and foreground. The improv-like ending was a nice touch and brought the song to that sweet climax that it was needing.

Initial Score: 7.5/10
