Dami Im's "Sound of Silence" full video for Eurovision
Last week, Australian broadcaster SBS announced that they would send Dami Im to Stockholm in May for the Eurovision Song Contest.
After a teaser clip released last night of her song “Sound of Silence,” the broadcaster has presented the full video.
The song shows off Dami‘s range very well, and there are hints of Taylor Swift in there too. Perhaps the familiarity sound of Swift may propel this to a Eurovision win for Australia.
Dami’s Thoughts on the Song
Speaking on the song, Dami told SBS, “There are many ways to interpret the meaning around a song, but one theme that I relate to in Sound of Silence is that of disconnection and being away from the people in my life that I love. We live in a world where it is easy to be connected every minute of the day but along with this connection you can feel alone and isolated. I can’t wait to perform it live in Stockholm and connect with a whole new audience.”
Korean -born Dami Im, gained fame in Australia by appearing and winning X-Factor Australia back in 2013. Since then Dami has released albums, EPs and singles which have charted well in Australia, including some minor success in South Korea. She will follow in the footsteps of last year’s representative Guy Sebastian who coincidentally won the reality show Australian Idol, and came in fifth in Australia’s first attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest.
