Gay Pride Flags Out In Force During Russia's Eurovision Performance 'A Million Voices' - VIDEO

Enhanced-15509-1432067001-15

The Pride flags were out in force on Tuesday night during Russia’s performance at the Eurovision semi-final.

At last year’s Eurovision final, Russian act the Tolmachevy Sisters received a less than enthusiastic reception. This year however, the audience appeared to be generally enthusiastic during Polina Gagarina’s performance of “A Million Voices”.

MoldovaRob Watts, who was at the semi-final co-hosted by Conchita Wurst in Vienna, told BuzzFeed that he noticed many more pride flags in the audience during Russia’s song than in any other performance. “We were all told to be nice to all the countries ‘no matter who is in charge.’ We were asked not to boo anyone.”

His friend Laura Cress said “there seemed to be much less resistance [and] apart from the extra flags everyone around us actually really liked the Russian entry.”

Gagarina is likely a shoe-in to win but with Australia performing and voting for the first time anything could happen especially as Moldova’s ridiculous but brilliant entry “I Want Your Love” (right) and the Netherlands' old-school entry didn’t even qualify for the finals.

The second semi-final takes place tonight followed by the grand final on Saturday.

New Music is brought to you by Deadly Music! which covers mostly independent indie, alternative, electro pop, post rock and ambient music, with a bit of everything else deadly thrown in for good measure.

Most songs reviewed here are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.

Lull - “Bubble Tea”

Lull-bubble-teaIndie pop via classic shoegaze, Lull is a brand new quartet from London, England.

With a sound somewhere between The Jesus and Mary Chain, Smashing Pumpkins, Slowdive and The History of Colour TV, "Bubble Tea" is an instantly memorable clash of melancholy fuzzy noise pop.

Taken from their debut album to be released next month - remarkably accomplished considering they have been together for a year - “Bubble Tea” suggests hidden depths and potential mass appeal.

Their first collection of new songs in 15 years, Happy New Year was recorded this past New Year’s Eve in Hobart, Tasmania after the legendary band performed a sold out concert at the Sydney Opera House.
