The Humans have covered “Euphoria”.
Romania’s Eurovision 2018 entrants The Humans have released a short cover of Loreen’s Eurovision winning song “Euphoria”. The band have uploaded the clip to their official Facebook page.
The band aren’t the only Eurovision 2018 artists to cover winning songs, as earlier this week Iceland’s Ari Ólafsson uploaded his cover of “Amar Pelos Dois”. Sennek from Belgium and Alexander Rybak from Norway also covered the Portuguese winning song.
The Humans were selected to represent Romania back in February when they won the Romanian national selection show Selectia Nationala.
Founded in 2017, The Humans is a Romanian band from Bucharest. The group consists of Cristina Caramarcu (vocalist), Alexandru Cismaru (guitarist), Alexandru Matei (keyboardist), and Adi Tetrade (drummer). Although they are a new band, they rose to fame after winning this year’s Selectia Nationala, the Romanian Eurovision selection show. Their song “Goodbye” was written by Cristina herself and was composed and produced by band members Alexandru Matei and Alin Neagoe.
