RELEASE DATE: 31st MAY, 2019 Romania’s Eurovision Song Contest National Selection Winner, Ester Peony releases “On A Sunday” After winning the National Selection, Ester Peony is Romania’s representative for Eurovision Song Contest 2019. On 31st May, the winner of the Romanian National Selection, releases the video “On A Sunday”, a cinematographic production directed by Petre Nastase.
The video captures the story of each verse of the song and presents several sides of the protagonist’s personality. With a strong look and a bold attitude, Ester seems to live in an imaginary world where legendary beings embody the emotions and experiences that dominate the artist’s entire universe. The single combines the guitar sound with the lyrics, complementing the single’s dark mood with a powerfull message: Love becomes dangerous when it is given to the wrong person.
“First of all, I would like to thank all those who believed in me and have supported me over time with beautiful messages and constructive comments. Your support helps me every day in my training as an artist. “On A Sunday” was born out of a single guitar accord that created the inspiration for the entire melodic line. The rest came by itself. While filmimg the videoclip, I had a great and wonderful team that made sure that every detail on the set was perfect. The strong message of the song blends perfectly with the story of the video – from the outfits I wore, to the mood I wanted to convey. Everything was exactly as I imagined. I am very happy that what was until now only in my imagination, became reality”, Ester confesses.”On A Sunday” gathered a total of 65 points from the jury consisting of Tali Eshkoli, Emmelie de Forest, Deban Aderemi and William Lee Adams, journalists, Serban Cazan, Alex Calancea, but also from the public. The song composed by the artist together with Alex Serbu and Ioana Victoria Badea will be presented on stage at the Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, in May 2019.
