Next up on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is Iceland. Systur with the song“Með Hækkandi Sól” are ready for his first rehearsal on the stage of PalaOlimpico in Turin!
Everything about Systur:
Sigga, Beta and Elín are a band of sisters who have been singing together for as long as they can remember.
The girls previously assembled a group named after their beloved grandmother, Sísí Ey; scoring a huge hit in Iceland with the song, Ain’t Got Nobody.
Their father, Eythor, was a member of the legendary jazz-funk band, Mezzoforte, who scored a UK number 17 hit in 1983 with the song Garden Party. Their mother, Ellen, is also a singer, and their brother (also named Eythor) will join them on stage playing drums.
The three siblings believe strongly in the healing power of music and spend much of their time supporting those who are marginalised in society. In recent years, they have focused their activism on trans children’s rights, and are deeply involved with the local community
Systur’s song Með Hækkandi Sól means ‘with the rising sun’, so it’s literally the morning after a night of Austrian techno. Some more super-stylish retro outfits – the sixties and seventies are VERY big in the costume department this year.
This performance has some beautiful harmonies, and the glittery graphics make it feel quite magical. 100% would attend this Icelandic family gathering.
The second rehearsal of Iceland will take place on Thursday 5/5 so we will have a better picture of what we will see from Systur on the stage of the competition.
