Måneskin conquers the world

    Music Industry Weekly - Måneskin Eurovision 2021
    Måneskin Eurovision 2021

    This rock band does not need an introduction (at least in Europe) – Måneskin became the winner of Eurovision 2021, representing Italy, and its fame skyrocketed after that. It is not usual for Eurovision’s winners, however – even though all countries in Europe, as well as England and Russia, watch and vote in this contest, the statistics show that winners don’t last long after. However, there are some exceptions such as Celine Dion and now – Måneskin. 

    Eurovision 2021 finished on May 22. It’s been 5 months since the band became an obsession of the European Union (and not only) and it keeps growing. What is the phenomenon of the band? Some people say it is the energy and music they bring to a stage – the good old pure rock with extravagant costumes and provocative performance. 

    It seems like Måneskin conquers the world – their first tour across Europe got sold out in less than 2 hours. Isn’t it a success? 

    The tour hasn’t even started yet, but the band already travels around Europe with special performances, press meetings, etc.. And today, they released a new single “MAMMAMIA”. The frontman of the band, Damian David, shared some of his thoughts during the press conference in Berlin about the process of recording new songs after the Eurovision 2021, “We only had a few days to go to the studio and write music, but fortunately this song came out in a few hours – that’s why we felt like it was going to be a banger for us”. “After Eurovision, we had a lot of attention on us. A lot of the time, we did something that we thought was great but people criticized us. I wanted to translate that into the lyrics, because it happens a lot – maybe you’re doing something that you feel is great, but people don’t understand it and make bad judgements and bad comments about it. I wanted to make fun of that situation.”, he said. 

    The most interesting question right now is – Will this obsession over Måneskin come to the US? And if yes, how long is it going to take? Well, guess we should wait and see.
