In a recent interview with RTVSLO, Raiven shared exciting details about her participation. She expressed her commitment to an electronic sound and hinted at the thematic essence of “Veronika”:

“I envision ‘Veronika’ as a symbol of feminism, but not of the stereotypical kind. I wouldn’t want to portray that on stage. However, femininity and grace, definitely!”
