by Alex Vovidis 292 views

Joci Pápai, who represented Hungary in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with Origo, has released a new single and a music video alongside. 

The name of Joci Pápai’s new single is Távol, meaning Far away, written and produced by Joci Pápai himself.

If you loved Origo, his newest track is not so different: it has the strong dose of Hungarian beauty throughout the music video as well as within the lyrics. With this song, Joci tries a more ethereal way of expressing his emotions.

In the video you can see Alexandra Virág, the woman from the Eurovision Origo performance back in Kyiv, dancing while performing a type of a ritual. The video gives the same aesthetic as with the Kyiv performance.

Because words cannot describe the wonder of the music video and song, check it out in full below!
