Get ready for a Polish-Finnish collaboration with a Eurovision flavour as Kasia Moś teams up with Norma John for their joint venture Wild eyes.

Wild eyes is the latest song by Kasia Moś featuring Norma John (Leena Tirronen and Lasse Piirainen), all artists having partaken in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, representing Poland and Finland respectively.

Back in November 2017 Kasia Moś and Norma John already announced that they were going to work together, and now their labour of love has been released. In their musical collaboration, Kasia’s powerful voice forms a riveting harmony with Norma John’s haunting melodies.

Wild eyes addresses ecological issues and deals with the interconnectedness of all things, the whole of humankind, nature and existence itself. In these perilous times, we must remember the simple truth that everything and everyone is connected:

Anyone thinking they’re the centre of the universe, forgot one simple truth: when humankind perishes, nature will survive, but when nature is gone – people die with it. We’re an inseparable part of the natural world and yet we still don’t have enough respect towards it. We pursue wealth and happiness, but aren’t these efforts devastating for the environment? Aren’t we trying to wash the guilt away? Every single action matters and can improve our lives – let’s not forget that Earth is the only planet we’ve got so far. As Jane Goodall once said: ‘Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference’.

The song was composed and written by Rickard Bonde Truumeel, Lilly Ahlberg and Lasse Piirainen, with the music production by Kasia Moś, Piotr Witkowski and Lasse Piirainen. Violinist is Mateusz Moś, Kasia’s brother.

At Eurovision 2017
