Sovarasma
Official national thread



Welcome to Sovarasma, home of different sounds. Most of our music is indie/alternative, sometimes pop too. The country is named "Sovarasma", derived from "σοβαρός" (Greek) meaning "serious", and "ᾆσμα" (Ancient Greek) meaning "song". I hope you all enjoy the selection throughout the BJSC contests!

Capital city: Agerson (Etymology: "ager" (Latin) -- field; "sonus" (Latin) -- sound)
Language: Sounds
Head of delegation: Aoede

Entries:
BJSC 132: LANKS, Yorke - KING (DNQ - 30th place: 17 points)

Feel free to give feedback to entries and potential future entries on this thread!

BJSC 132: LANKS, Yorke - KING

Sovarasma has chosen "KING" to represent the nation for the first time under this country name. I personally really like the instrumentation of this song. The synths have a special sounding and there are a lot of changes and variations with the use of synths. The best part of this song is how it builds up towards a strong ending with the hard-dropping bass concluding the chorus. I hope you love this song as much as I do!

Greetings Sovarasma! hi.gif

Great to be in another music contest with you as I’ve enjoyed your output in the recent Pop Forum Song Contest and on various Club Bizarre contests too, and now I’m here to listen to this entry which I have on play now, and it’s definitely sending some vibes, quite mellow and laid back music and I am always up for a bit of Radiohead and I get Thom Yorke vibes from this (mostly his solo stuff), and that’s not a bad thing. smile.gif

Great effort and may your nation have a great contest! Sending love from Zanmatony! heart.gif

Thanks Zanmatony! Hopefully this song will do well! I have loads of potentials already for the next contest and I don't know if I should do it in a national selection format tongue.gif

It was a big disappointment in the end however. sad.gif I really enjoyed this song and had it as the best song of 2020 but sadly it didn't appeal to a lot of people. sad.gif My huge thanks goes to Niceland for giving us 12 points, which is surely a recognition at least from someone! smile.gif

I'm pondering whether in the next edition I should go pop or once again indie/alternative. I am inclined to choosing the latter because I think this genre needs some representation in the contest.

Would anyone want a national selection for the next edition though? If so, I can list 3-4 entries here next Thursday, all in different styles, so that you guys can give some advice to help put Sovarasma to the finals! biggrin.gif

On another note, here is the latest single of LANKS! It is a lot more stripped, while it retains the moody feeling. Great song there! biggrin.gif

BJSC 133 potentials

Hello all! I know there is not a lot of interest in this but if you could spare some time in giving some advice to the following 4 potential entries, that'd be really great!



Marlhy - Good Die Young

Following Bre's advice to go pop without any regrets, this sounds to me like a "safe" pop song for BJSC? At least it has a memorable chorus, special instrumentation, with a hint of Ina Wroldsen's "Pale Horses". Marlhy wrote the song to bid farewell to the year of pain that is 2020, and welcome 2021 with hope that things will soon brighten up.



YONAKA - Seize the Power

This is an empowering song and I really love the rock element in this song. The drop in the second chorus is probably one of the hardest drops I've ever heard for a while. I love the instrumentation and the melody. YONAKA quoted the song to be "a new chapter for us" and wanted us "to get lost in a feeling of strength and empowerment when listening to this song."



Lilith Czar - King

This is another empowering song and it is more rock than the previous one. Once again there goes another memorable melody and the instrumentation is very strong throughout the song. The message of the song is even more important. Formerly Juliet Simms, she spent a lot of years discovering herself and Lilith Czar is her discovery, which represents "ultimate female strength and outspokenness and rebellion and going against the norm." King is her first statement under this new name, and it blends elements of pop and rock.



Jades Goudreault - nuh uh

Ending this selection is probably one of the catchiest songs recently. The chorus is memorable with a special vocal style, with an interesting combination of chord progression and instrumentation thereafter in the drop. It is very short but it packs a big punch.

I would appreciate some feedback and hopefully I can choose wisely which might bring Sovarasma their first ever qualification to the finals!

Greetings Savarasma from Zanmatony!

I might have only just returned to BJSC, so might not have the best placed advice for what might qualify, but I have taken the time to listen to your four potentials here, and this was my thoughts;

Personally I felt that the strongest song of the four you posted was by Lilith Czar. I had not heard any of these songs beforehand, so all of this was an immediate first impression. I felt like what this song offered was bold, empowering and the sort of entry I could see in a final of BJSC. I can already imagine the types of countries that would get behind it and award it points provided they are in the same Semi final as you!

The song by Jades Goudreault was possibly the weakest of the selection for me, and I probably wouldn’t give it points, it just didn’t grab me as I was hoping it would. But that’s just me, someone else might find it catch like you did.

Marlhy was a nice discovery too, and one that I might give points to depending on what else was available in the Semi Final, but it sounded decent and ticked the box for a pop entry for sure.

And your last potential by YONAKA I feel would be better suited to a different contest like Unknown Pleasures.

Please note, this is all just the opinion of one person, please continue to receive more feedback before making your final decision! biggrin.gif

YONAKA are bordering on being too well known for BJSC let alone Unknown Pleasures kink.gif (it's a quite good song but they have been sent enough times already so my vote based on that alone is anything but that xx)
