Introducing 2012: Switzerland!

All the entries for the 2012 contest have been selected and now My Eurovision Diary will introduce them to you!

Entrant: Sinplus (also Sin+)

Sinplus consists of the two brothers Ivan and Gabriel Broggini. In December 2011, they were chosen by the Swiss TV public to represent their country in Baku.

Ivan and Gabriel Broggini: Two brothers, both musicians, both with a natural talent for songwriting. They grew up listening to Queen, Bob Marley and U2 and began playing music at an early age. Ivan’s passion was the guitar from the very first. Gabriel played keyboards and drums, but soon picked up the guitar too and discovered his passion for singing. At the age of thirteen, both brothers were already playing in their own bands and were spending hours practicing in their father’s practice room.

When Gabriel left college, he decided to head to San Diego. He was able to sample the city’s underground music scene. When he returned from America, the brothers decided to form a band on their own and to write songs together. Thus they established the inFinity project. Their first single, entitled Without Identity, made it to the charts, and the corresponding video clip was broadcasted by several television stations including VIVA. They also had the chance to perform at major venues throughout Switzerland such as Kofmehl and Dynamo and won various contests.

Entry: Unbreakable 

This was the first song selected for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, It was composed and penned by Gabriel Broggini, Ivan Broggini

Tomorrow we will introduce the Belgian entry, note that the entries will be introduced according to the running order!

  1. If this was only about music, Switzerland would be in my top 10 with a very high score this year. I have always liked rock and particularly enjoy the 80s reminiscences (The Cure etc.) in this year’s Swiss entry. Unfortunately, there are lyrics and pronunciation too, and both matter a lot in my opinion. The lyrics are written in basic school English including some really weird stuff. “Today is all allowed”??? Give me a break! To make things worse, the lead singer doesn’t even know how to pronounce very simple words like ‘head’ or ‘don’t’. It is a real pity because I love the song itself but all things considered, I cannot give more than 6/12 which brings Sinplus into 24th place on my pre-rehearsals list.

  2. I actually like the melody and the instrumentation, but when he opens his mouth to sing, a nightmarish landscape comes to mind. It’s downright scary! LOL Sing it in your native language, please.
