Aidan: Dai Laga is another word for ‘Being Me’
Aidan is taking part in Malta Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time this year, and he has two songs in the competition! Apart from being a member of the boyband Avenue Sky, he is also entering the competition as a soloist, with the song he wrote himself – “Dai Laga”.
We had a pleasure to chat with Aidan, get to know him better and find out more about his entry “Dai Laga”. Check out everything he told us right here in this interview:
Hello Aidan! First of all thank you for your time for doing this interview, and congratulations for making it to the Finals of MESC! How did you feel when you found out that you are one of the finalists?
I actually cried! My reaction was priceless!
How did you decide to enter the song this year?
I wasn’t going to submit any song this year, as I have been working on my debut e.p., however my production team kept on emphasizing on how lovely would “Dai Laga” fit Eurovision.
Can you tell us more about the story of the song, what it’s about, and the team who worked on it?
We live in a world where since kids, we are taught what and how to do things. Mostly, taught how to live life, as if there is a guide book. We’d have to “go to school, get good grades, find a job, get married, have children,etc” and I want to raise awareness that it is okay to let some people down and do it your way. “Dai Laga”, for me, is another word for “being me”. I wrote “Dai Laga” myself and it was produced in Croatia.
How are you getting ready for the night of the final?
It’s basically full-on rehearsals with my production team. So glad I have great people working with me!
How do you plan your stage performance to look like? Are you planning to have any props, backing vocalists, or anyone joining you on stage?
Without exposing too much of what’s going to happen, I dare to say that we are working very hard to put up something new and innovative for MESC.
What do you usually do when you are not singing?
That’s quite a difficult question to answer! I am probably listening to music and/ or writing new songs.
Why should you be the one to represent Malta in Lisbon?
This is my first time at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest selection. It would be quite presumptuous for me to say why I should win. Let the jury and the public decide.
The competition is on a very high level this year. But which is that one act that you think is your biggest competition to win?
I believe every act will be unique in its own original way, therefore it’s quite unpredictable to say who will be at the top of the scoreboard. This is Eurovision!!! haha
Are you currently involved in any other projects?
I am indeed! I am currently working on my debut E.P. “Dai Laga” will be the third single from this episode of songs!
We also have a couple of questions for you just to get to know you a little bit better. Favorite movie?
Your own signature dish?
Quite an easy to cook dish, but I believe it’s Penne Al Salmone
In a movie about your life, who would be playing you?
What would you bring to a desert island?
Lots of water (and my voice)
Favorite taste of ice-cream?
Your ideal duet-partner would be?
Currently in love with Rita Ora!
The last song you listened to was…?
Alexander Walmann’s “Talk To The Hand”.
Favorite Eurovision winning song?
The song you heard and wished it was yours instead?
“Finesse” by Bruno Mars (Current fave)
Thank you very much for your time Aidan, and we wish you the very best of luck at the MESC Final!
