S!sters will take to the stage for Germany this year in Tel Aviv singing the song ‘Sister’. Find out what we made of the song.
Germany chose a great set of songs and artists to compete in their Eurovision national final in 2019. Aly Ryan and Lilly Among Clouds in particular stood out with their complete tunes ‘Wear Your Love’ and ‘Surprise’. It was a shock and a shame then when the competition crowned the duo S!sters as their winner.
Despite the name of the band and song the two women are in fact not sisters. However, you wouldn’t know it as they both have decent chemistry and their vocals work well together. This is most evident when they join together and their almost spoken vocals are at times fragile and full of emotion.
While ‘Sister’ is a decent ballad that opens with the nice recurring motif of music box-eque chiming and a powerful crescendo of drums towards the end, it sounds like an album track that Lena turned down. If we weren’t comparing this song to the others in the national final, I may have been more favourable towards it, but as it stands it is nowhere near as good as ‘Surprise’ or my personal winner ‘Wear Your Love’.
