She was the very first representative to be announced, and now she’s one of the last to release her song, Srbuk has teased us for months about the release of her song, titled “Walking Out”, and it sure is a quality track. The question is, has she lost a lot of chances to promote the track as she waited so long? Well, she’s made sure no one’s forgotten about her with the release of this song.
“Walking Out” was written by Garik Papoyan, Lost Capital, and tokionine. It really showcases off her voice and vibe perfectly, giving us a great concept. The track is certainly going to shine live on stage and we’re excited to watch Srbuk, real name Srbuhi Sargsyan, perform this track at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
It has a vocalised indie-pop vibe about it that really fits with Srbuk’s style. The music video, which was directed by Arthur Manukyan whilst Artyom Abovyan acted as director of photography, is shown in black and white as Srbuk is surrounded by male dancers who are wearing formal attire although they are topless under their jackets. It has a theme of a thriller of anticipation and it certainly is interesting, although it makes us wonder what the staging will be like for Armenia, we’ll just have to wait for May, to find out.
