I Like - Triana Park |

It's a Thursday, and that means it's revisit time, and I'm so glad I get to look back on one of Triana Park's classic songs, because this is just as good as "Line", and proves that over time this band has stayed true to themselves. I truly believe that Triana Park is leading the way for electronic rock bands, and will continue to be a force within the music world. Watch Triana Park perform in this gritty music video that clearly displays life in all its ups and downs in this music video for "I Like".

Triana Park has had quite the longevity when it comes to music. They have released a number of singles, a debut album and an EP. The band was formed by Agnese Rakovska and her father Aivars Rakovskis. Back when this song was released, the line-up may have been different to what it is now, as far as we're aware. Regardless, Triana Park has tried, unsuccessfully, to compete in Eurovision for Latvia several times. It wasn't until 2017, after a five-year break, they gave it another shot and they won Supernova 2017 - a different national selection show, that had been brought in a few years ago. However, they failed to make it to the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, with their song "Line", but still managed to gain plenty of fans all around Europe and the world. Personally, I'm excited to see what they release next.

This music video was directed by Ivars Burtnieks. It's more of a performance-based piece, with scenic shots of life and how hard and difficult it can be all the while showing the ups as well.

There are so many great scenes in this visual, that truly shows off the song and the location and the people in it. Triana Park looks spectacular throughout, and the gig scene is raw and intimate.

There isn't a lot to this music video though, it's clear there wasn't a lot put into it, and at times, it just looks like a random set of scenes all collaborated together. Regardless, the song is pure fire and it's definitely something I shall be downloading when I finally have iTunes credit.
