Sebi

Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl will represent Slovenia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. They are a relatively new duo that joined forces in 2017. Before they met, they were both focused on growing their individual careers in Slovenia’s music scene.

Zala started by playing covers and soon after began writing her own songs based on gentle narration and soft, melodic vocals. Gašper started playing the guitar at a young age and when he reached his teens, his music led him to Prague, where, under the wing of Faust Records studio, he studied to become an audio producer and a composer. After 2 years, on a quest for new inspiration, he decided took a cycling trip through Europe where he wrote the chorus for the duo's first single Valovi.
The singers first met on Instagram: when Zala’s videos were shared with Gašper, he knew he had found the right vocalist for his new song. Valovi was a huge success, taking over radio stations across Slovenia and winning the Slovenian annual music award Zlata piščal for the best song of 2017. The duo returned in 2018 with 2 new songs, each showcasing Gašper’s gentle electronic pop style and Zala's soft voice.
The band's fourth single Sebi was presented on Evrovizijska Melodija 2019. Zala and Gašper brought their charm and authenticity to the stage, and they won the ticket to represent Slovenia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. The duo remains calm and confident as they approach the contest, believing that there is no challenge they could not face together.
In the meantime, the duo has released an EP with their first 4 singles, aptly named Štiri (Four). When Gašper and Zala are creating new music, they try to be as honest as possible and pass on a meaningful message to their listeners. With their songs, they hope to find people for whom the music means something. The most important creative bond is their combined desire to tell stories with their songs and their ability to write and interpret each other’s music.

Lyrics of Sebi

Slovenian (Original)

Ko so tvoje misli polnelahko poslušaš, kako mi bije srceKo težko je tvoje bremek meni se lahko zatečeš
Vprašaj, kaj me vodi daljeSo dosežki in razdaljeKot list gre z vetrom in se mu upirajaz grem s tokom in se mu upiram
Vedno se ne vidi zvezdsam ostani sebi zvestNe govori mi oprosti
Ko solze v tvojih so očehpusti jih, da tečejoKo najine želje so različnesprejmeš me in sprejmem te
Poglej me, je nujno, da ima vse pomenVečnost in ta planet nista prijateljain jaz sem kot snežinka, ki čaka na pomlad
Vedno se ne vidi zvezdsam ostani sebi zvestNe govori mi oprosti
Ni ti treba se dokazovatVežejo nas iste solze, isti strah
Vedno se ne vidi zvezdsam ostani sebi zvestNe govori mi oprosti

English

When your mind is full of thoughtsyou can listen to my heartbeatWhen your burden is heavyyou can come to me
Ask what keeps me going forwardIs it distance and successLike a leaf blows with the wind and resists itI go with the flow and resist it
You can't always see the starsjust stay true to who you arestop apologising to me
When there are tears in your eyeslet them beWhen we have different wishesI accept you and you accept me
Look at me, is it necessary, for everything to have a meaningEternity and this planet aren't friendsand I'm like a snowflake, that's waiting for the spring
You can't always see the starsjust stay true to who you arestop apologising to me
You don't have to prove yourself to anyoneWe all share the same fears, the same tears
You can't always see the starsjust stay true to who you arestop apologising to me
