THE ROOP – Discoteque (Eurovision 2021)



THE ROOP have already noticed with their previous hit ”On Fire” how music and dance affects people. Music and dance liberates everyone. There’s not a single person who cannot dance. This is innate. Dance is like a tool which can also heal scars.

This 80s styles and movies “Alice in Wonderland”, “Twin Peaks” inspired music video – directed by award-winning director Saulius Baradinskas.

THE ROOP’s leader Vaidotas says: “The new song “Discoteque” talks about personal inner liberation. Rather often we say that we are free and that we live in a free world. But most of our restraints come from the inside. So, this song and movement aims liberate our minds, which contains too much self-criticism, fear of appearing different, reluctance to accept your body, even limiting your attractiveness.”

The main melody line is reminiscent of old folk songs (if sung in legato, however the band presents it in staccato), so “The Roop” brings folk music sound to the dancefloor.

“Part C or so-called bridge of the song is full of mouth sounds which carries us back in time thousands of years ago. It’s a return to the very beginning of us, where we can start all over again,” says band’s drummer Robertas.

The song is called “Discoteque” – without the letter “h”, because it’s a different kind of discotheque.

“It’s not about showing yourself off. It’s more about being with yourself and accepting yourself the way you are,” says band’s guitarist Mantas.

The song comes together with an energetic dance which can allow you to escape and let loose. Some of the moves of the dance were taken from the childhood, some – inspired by legendary Lithuanian basketball player Arvydas Sabonis.

“Discoteque” will also enter 2021 Lithuanian National Eurovision Selection. The band who were fan favourites to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with their song “On Fire” have been invited back to compete straight in the final show.

DISCOTEQUE

Ok, I feel the rhythm.
Something’s going on here.
The music flows through my veins.

It’s taking over me.
It’s slowly kickin’ in.
My eyes are blinking
And I don’t know what is happening.

I can’t control it.
Don’t wanna end it.
There’s no one here
And I don’t care
I feel it’s safe to dance alone.

Let’s discoteque right at my home.
It is ok to dance alone.
Dance alone, dance alone, dance alone, dance alone
I got the moves – it’s gonna blow.

By dancing on my own
I’m healing wounded soul.
My body’s shaking,
Heart is breaking, have to let it go.

I need to get up.
And put my hands up.
There’s no one here
And I don’t care
I feel it’s safe to dance alone.

Let’s discoteque right at my home.
It is ok to dance alone.
Dance alone, dance alone, dance alone, dance alone
I got the moves – it’s gonna blow.

Let’s discoteque right at my home.
It is ok to dance alone.
I got the moves – it’s gonna blow.
It is ok to dance alone.

Chiki chika…

Let’s discoteque right at my home.
It is ok to dance alone.
I got the moves – it’s gonna blow.
It is ok to dance alone.
