Mariette returns with poppy second single
If there was one revelation at Melodifestivalen 2015, it was Mariette. She participated in Idol 2009, but never really had her big break yet in the Swedish music scene. Her moment came in the second semi final of the Swedish Eurovision preselection. She came on stage with the captivating, mystic pop song ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, co-written by Swedish artist Miss Li. She won her semi and went on to finish in third place in the competition. Now Mariette is back with a new single called ‘My Revolution’, that functions as the official Stockhom Pride theme.
‘My Revolution’ is slightly more upbeat and poppy than ‘Don’t Stop Believing’. It was written by Mariette herself, together with Linnea Olsson, Fredrik Samsson and Anton Hård af Segerstad. The chorus is uplifting and settles in your mind easily, because the hook is strong and is repeated throughout. The overall atmosphere is quite different to the mysterious vibe ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ had, but at the same time it is another well written pop song that is taken to another level by Mariette’s characteristic vocals. I can picture thousands of people singing this along with her during Stockholm Pride and that is the goal here, isn’t it? Mariette will release an EP called My Revolution as well next week with compositions by the amazing Ace Wilder and the writers of Måns Zelmerlöw’s ‘Heroes’. That sounds promising!
