Eurovision Insight Podcast: In-Depth With Electro Velvet Written by on May 10, 2015 | 1 Comment

My name will be forever associated with Eurovision… that’s mind-blowing.”

Selected through an open submission process, this year’s entry for the United Kingdom is Electro Velvet. Following in the grand tradition of Coco, Bucks Fizz, and (errr) Ryder, Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas carry the hopes and dreams of a nation on their unknown shoulders.

Let’s try to alter that balance now in our next In-depth Insight as Ewan sits down with the duet that brings the Charleston to Eurovision, the Rolling Clones to Austria, and the echoes of The Voice…
