About Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz:
Not much is known about this band except that they have known each other as kids and were formed in Tbilisi, Georgia. As well as Nika Kocharov the Young Georgian Lolitaz consist of Giorgi Marr (Bass Guitar), Levan Shanshiashvili (Guitar) and Dimitri Oganesian (Drums). The band are now based in the United Kingdom which has heavily influenced the groups sound.

The group were internally selected by GPB and five songs were shortlisted for the public to choose from. An international jury helped to decide as well as an online vote and SMS vote. It was decided that “Midnight Gold” would be the song the band would sing. The song was then re-produced by Swedish Songwriter Thomas G: Son. Georgia are currently sitting in the odds at 250/1 to win in May

Lyrics:
(Taken from Eurovision.tv)

When I came to,
your smell on me
i reached around the bed and grabbed a cigarette out of your bag.
Sound of you breathing,
feel of your skin,
brought back some memories,
I never thought this all could happen to me.
Ten hours are missing from memory,
I vaguely can recall pain and pleasure mixing in one bowl
My mind is spinning,
I know the bliss
Ten million miles away my flesh and bones are dreaming in a haze.
Stains of mud on your skin
Night will come ans so will the sin

  1. :) :) :)

  2. Another one that does strays from the usual path in a good way.

  3. I love it, but prefer “We agree” which is a highlight of the season. In general, one of the rare good esc artists this year, and with Croatia turning into yet another disney campfest (as they’ve done almost every year since their debut 93 horror), this one is very likely to end in my top 5 of eurovision 2016!

  4. It’s an ok song but when it comes to indie I prefer Montenegro this year!

  5. Its just there. Nothing to get excited about. Decent but colourless and odorless. Inoffensive and I dont think it will make it.
