What is their most popular song?
To date, their competing entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest “Sister” is their most popular number,
“Sister” was written by Laurell Barker (who also penned the UK’s entry “Bigger Than Us” for Michael Rice and Switzerland’s “She Got Me” for Luca Hänni), Marine Kaltenbacher, Tom Oehler, and Thomas Stengaard in 2018 originally as part of the Eurovision songwriting camp for Switzerland, but as it wasn’t chosen to take part in Die Große Entscheidungsshow, it was entered to take part in the 2019 German national selection show.
According to Barker, “the song is at large about women who, aren’t necessarily related, but who may feel intimidated or just thrown down by each other. It’s about making space for each other in the workplace and in life and in society. There’s room for all of us to be strong and powerful if that’s what we want to be.”
