Another strong ballad effort from a Scandinavian country. This time it’s the turn of Norwegian entry Carl Espen and ‘Silent Storm’. The ballad comes from someone you wouldn’t expect to see accompanied by a piano. Espen is a rocker who doesn’t look that unlike a certain Rufus Hound. The song however is very powerful, with echoey, haunting vocals and is very emotional in parts.
The video for the song is quite understated with Carl sitting singing as a glass of water spills over but doesn’t smash and as pages scatter around the room. I feel as though the song will do quite well in the final but it won’t be vying for the top spot. Have a look at the video below and let us know what you think.
