Whether the UK is in with a chance to win Eurovision 2023 remains to be seen, but this fun track from representative Mae Muller is certainly giving fans hope. Odds on her victory have been slashed in some quarters following the track's release, as audiences relate to the club-ready tale of venting anger at an ex artistically rather than violently.
Kicking off with a bold opening shot ('When you said you were leaving/ To work on your mental health/ You didn't mention the cheating, yeah/ You kept that one to yourself'), the action sees Muller and a coterie of dancers trash the unfaithful ex's car, trash his possessions, and menace him in a stylised restaurant.
There's an interesting interplay between live action choreography and stylised flair here, as Muller is at times depicted as a giant reaching down to stomp on a toy car or put her impressively clawed hand through a cinema screen. The song also grows on you the more you listen to it... even if a brief rap interlude towards the end is a bit too Eurovision for all but the most dedicated appreciators.
