The Serbian Eurovision 2021 representatives, the female trio, Hurricane, have released their new song titled "Do Neba" (To the Sky).
After storming the stage in Rotterdam Ahoy in May with their energertic performance of 'Loco Loco' , Hurricane return with a new track ready to scatter the lockdown dullness and drives us into the summer mood of the season.
‘Do Neba’ or (‘To the Sky’) is Hurricane's follow up single after their Eurovision 2021 participation. The song can be categorized in those Balkan pops songs with a strong dose of synths that take us straight into a summe scenery on the beach.
The song has been written and produced by Hurricane's member, Sanja Vučić along with Albanian-Kosovar composer Aida Baraku, and Darko Dimitrov. Darko has been behind several past Eurovision entries from North Macedonia, Albania, and Serbia among which his best result came with Tamara Todevska's "Proud" which finished 9th for North Macedonia.
Along with the track has been releaaed the music video which visualizes the feelings and mood the beat and melody of the song coveys itself. Sanja, Ksenija and Ivana appear on the beach, in the middle of the sea but in both cases they seem to be looking in pain for that lost far away love, stretching their view in the horizon.
