Is Gildenlow even involved with TA this time?

Aww- PoS lost today. Apparently, people who live outside of Sweden were unable to vote.

Oh well- 2 appearances on the show is better than nothing.

This song is great! Might be my favorite of the new PoS material (minus Yellow Raven, but that doesn't really count). Reminds me a lot of Pilgrim and Second Love. I bet it's even better in the context of the album.

Also, mellotron (!?)

But who knows. Maybe next year we'll have Anekdoten, Änglagård, Opeth and The Flower Kings ready for the big finale.

I didn't hear any other song there (it was a tough choice to even look at PoS when Zlatan and Barca was on at another channel) but I think Gildenlöw did a really fine job and I'm sure it was the best there (from my subjective elitist point of view). Though the whole thing felt a little awkward, as only he and their keyboardist actually did something on stage (and keyboards were probably playback, as it normally is in a "show" like this). Guitarist and drummer just sat around on the stage, looking stupid.

To me, the song mostly proved that a small and uniform excerpt from a progressive work often is not progressive at all.

Yay, at least they've got a second chance which is probably more than Daniel had ever hoped for! The performance was great but you have to agree that it felt out of place among the other contestants who were performing pure pop material.

Hopefully soon there is going to be a video uploaded to YouTube for everyone to enjoy! Big smile

If you want to see a prog band performing in the worst thing that has ever happened to popular music, that is.

Yes, the performance felt definitely out of place in comparison to the other seven contributions, but hey, at least we've got to hear Road Salt on national television. Wink
One thing that really didn't make sense to me was that all the band members were on stage despite it being a completely acoustic number. I definitely wouldn't want to be the drummer in that situation!

The results are coming soon, so I'll keep you all posted!

I just noticed that the link I posted previously has been updated with a video presentation of the band! I'm not sure if the video can be accessed in all regions so I'll translate the basic message here:

Gildenlöw: PoS is a band that likes to redefine their relation to music and play all different types of music mostly in other countries, but now also in Sweden.
As a song, Road Salt, is a mellower moment for us. In most cases I have a tendency to write about the loss of things, the loss of oneself and the loss of ones way in life. This is one of those way in life types of songs and was created after that we went through... well it was basically a tough year in many different ways.
I've said it before... it's a little fragile song that contains great power that refuses to give up.
...then the band sings an a cappella version of the chorus to "Dansa I Neon"...
Gildenlöw: Anyway, this one is good and should have won (refers to the Eurovision Contest).

PS
I just realized how much I suck at translation. LOL
