Ready to light up the room?

It’s Song 9, the time when legendary British Eurovision commentator Terry Wogan would start drinking. If there is a secret bar in Rotterdam Ahoy, we have yet to find it. It’s DRY in here.

James Newman’s song Embers is all about how our flames haven’t gone out over the past year – the embers are still burning, and we just need to give them a stoke and light up the room. We are very here for this sentiment, and this song is a proper bop.
