Things you should know about Electro Velvet
The song is Electro-Swing which is a wonderful combination of vintage music, brought up to date with modern bass lines and beats. Alex is a big fan of Louis Armstrong which inspired the scat section. It's a hugely catchy song, a real 'ear worm'!
Bianca can do a great impression of Britney Spears and even though they're called Electro Velvet, Alex hates the feel of the velvet!
Bianca likes to wear something small that was her grandma's while Alex has to wear odd socks!
Electro Velvet grew up watching the Eurovision Song Contest and admired the fantastic performers and staging - it's the biggest singing competition in the world and they're so proud to be taking part - especially in such a special year - the 60th Anniversary!
