The music video for “Friend of a Friend” has been revealed this morning by Lake Malawi.
Lake Malawi’s music video for their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 has been released. The music video was filmed at the end of February in Prague. This week has also seen the group begin their rehearsals for Eurovision. Albert who is the lead singer of the group posted on Instagram that:
Today was one of the hardest days since the start of Eurovision, we had a three hour show rehearsal in an empty studio to start practising stage movement… I still enjoy it though and I’m glad we’re still able to make fun of one another inside the band and in our Eurovision team too … The point where you’re so tired you just laugh and laugh uncontrollably… I’m sort of there now.
The band was selected to represent the Czech Republic in Tel Aviv after winning Eurovision CZ 2019. They had been chosen after receiving the most amount of votes from a combination of international jury vote, and public vote.
