France: Twin Twin – Moustache

    France's Les Chansons D’Abord show delivered the results of the French public tonight and they voted to send Twin Twin to Denmark with song Moustache! I may go against the grain in this review as I quite like the cut of France’s Moustache. There have been one or two people suggesting France are nailed on for last place, which is the same mistake I made in 2010 when Jessy Matadore finished 12th rather than 25th! Moustache is a fun, bouncy song delivered with the same gusto as Jedward’s Lipstick.  I can already picture the same vibrant stage presentation with…

I may go against the grain in this review as I quite like the cut of France’s Moustache.

Moustache is a fun, bouncy song delivered with the same gusto as Jedward’s Lipstick.  I can already picture the same vibrant stage presentation with Moustache motifs if the Copenhagen stage has a similarly large expanse of LCD screens.  Furthermore, the French publicity campaign will likely flood Copenhagen with novelty moustaches.

Unlike Iceland’s Pollapönk, Twin Twin are not irritating, and they’re not ageing men trying to appear relevant while exploiting the contest for own marketing side-line.

Like Zaleilah, Allez Ola Olé and Solayoh, Twin Twin have an opportunity to pitch Moustache as the year’s party/summer song.

Vocally I’m unconcerned, though in this new jury ranking regime, I wouldn’t want the vocals to be as loose as Jesse Matadore’s.  That said, if France meets expectations, Moustache could be on course for a similar finish to Jessy Matadore.

Will Twin Twin deliver a surprisingly high finish for France?

  1. lol trust the French to come up with their own version of colour vomit.

    As in your face as you can get. I imagine if this follow Poland’s entry in the final the public will feel they have seen the most bizarre 6 minutes in eurovision history.

    don’t get me wrong i find it quite infectious on repeated listens but i can’t see it making an instant impression and has potential to generate major fanwank. if that happens get ready to lay.

  2. This is horrible.Only staging potential might save it from bottom 5.As a big 5 country we are certain to have to suffer it in the final.
    France has the biggest tourist industry in the world with the most foreign visitors.This song has the capacity to cause great damage to that fact.
    My gran always told me to never trust strangers with a moustache.Im taking that advice now 35 years later and staying a long way away from this.

    • don’t keep too far away DB… there is still the bottom place market to consider.

      • It seems this year everyone is fighting for last place rather than first place doesnt it.
        The headlines “Fierce competition to take the last place crown at ESC”.

  3. The main worry for Twin Twin is vocal strength and the overall power of the package. It doesn’t have the same potential to impress as Jessy Matador. It certainly should be much more impactful on the Copenhagen stage than in the cosy Sunday afternoon studio, but nevertheless, the band are going to have a hard time providing enough impact with vocals and the need for dancers. It’s a fun song with a catchy hook that, if delivered effectively, should bring France up to about mid-table, but if it remains limp, they should be looking closer to a Jedward ‘Waterline’ sort of result. Top 10 seems rather unlikely.
