Tulia song named as girls get ready to set Eurovision on fire
Singing quartet Tulia who were picked to represent Poland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will be performing their song Pali Sie (Fire of Love).
The group, which will travel to Israel for the event which begins on May 14th, will perform the song in both English and Polish.
Formed in 2017, the four girls from the north-western town of Szczecin, 20-year-olds Joanna Sinkiewicz and Patrycja Nowicka, Dominika Siepka, 23, and 25-year-old Tulia Biczak (from whom the band takes its name), have taken the internet by storm with their quirky, ‘white noise’ singing style.
The group first touched stardom when their Polish folk cover of top 90’s band, Depeche Mode's Brit-rock hit "Enjoy the Silence” unexpectedly exploded on the internet.
After it was recorded by the quartet in October 2017, Depeche Mode posted it on their fan page which gathered 500,000 views. The girls then released a new music video of the cover in January 2018 on their own fan page pulling in millions of views.
Depicting an eerie fantasy twist on Polish culture, the girls stand like porcelain dolls in a snow-covered forest clad in bright folk wear while rocking in sync and ‘sing-screaming’ the song.
Shortly after, Tulia released a cover of "Nieznajomy" by Polish singer Dawid Podsiadło which has been viewed over 600,000 times and shared over 3,000 times.
The release of their debut album in May 2018 saw the Szczecin-based group reach platinum status and their self-titled album was placed 7th out of the 50 best-selling Polish records. In November the group also released a deluxe version of the LP featuring five original songs.
