The name is inspired by the old skeletons who were found thousands of years ago in the Italian city Valdaro. They were found buried together in a loving embrace and no one has ever been able to figure out whether it was a man and a woman or not, therefore they are considered genderless and symbolises that you can love whoever you want. That’s what «The Lovers of Valdaro» as a group wants to convey, hence the name.
They participated in the Swedish contest «P4 Nästa» and were through this also offered to participate in Melodifestivalen as well.
Last Saturday they competed in Leksand with the song «Somebody Wants», written by Erik himself together with Thomas G:son and Peter Boström – the dreamy duo who wrote Loreens «Euphoria».
Unfortunately «The Lovers of Valdaro» didn’t get a ticket to the final of the Melodifestivalen, but I can now confirm that «Somebody Wants» will be added to LGBTQ Music Chart this Sunday as a newcomer for week 10.
The Lovers of Valdaro // «Somebody Wants»
Singer-songwriter, record producer and dancer, Giora, after his two woozy, quirky 2020 debut singles «Where the Flowers Grow» and «Sorry», has just dropped a striking new video for his latest electronica-infused,, and title track from recent EP, «Safe In The Dark».
Akin to a hybrid of Robyn’s «Dancing On My Own» and Joel Corry/MNEK’s «Head & Heart» collaboration, this self-composed unforgettable Dance/Pop earworm sees Paul embracing his love of 90’s house and is draped in drink-in-hand, heart-on-sleeve, pop realness.
