Video premiere: “The Roop” introduce new song and music video “UFO” featuring Migloko

Just half a year ago they released their second studio album “Ghosts”, and in early spring won everyone’s hearts in the National “Eurovision” Selection, now “The Roop” return with a new treat for their listeners – an EP “Yes, I Do”. Today the musicians share the first single off it – a song and video featuring Migloko called “UFO”. 

The band’s soul Vaidotas Valiukevičius recalls meeting Migloko about a year ago and instantly feeling close to her.

“It happens sometimes that you don’t know the person well, but you feel that there is something in common, – says Vaidotas. – I loved how open she was with her voice, movement, clothes. She is living similarly to me – not chasing standards or trying to fit some society built frames. And we both feel a little alien on this Earth.” 

Migloko, who always stands out for her vibrant appearance, says that “UFO” is exactly about people that live and think differently from what is considered common.

“This is a song about being yourself even though you are a little strange, about self acceptance. Being different is wonderful and interesting. People finally feel free and this makes you feel happy,” – she rejoices.

Vaidotas is sure that every person is brilliant and attractive, but most are still afraid to show it.

“This is exactly the fear and escape from it that we talk about in the “UFO” video, – he says. – We show how we look at ourselves, get used to ourselves until we finally enter the world brave, self confident, and most importantly the way we actually are – without masks or attempts to fit in. It is amazing how perfectly director Laura Kazbaraitė understood the idea and managed to complement it.”

The director confessed that it was one of the most creative and active projects she directed recently.

“I am happy to have had the possibility to collaborate with such artistic, open and authentic singers like Vaidotas and Migloko. I hope that this summer song and an unconventional video will encourage viewers to be braver expressing themselves and free themselves from any social or emotional constrains,” – says Laura Kazbaraitė.

Just like the new song, the whole fresh EP from “The Roop” – “Yes, I Do” – is about light, positivity and trust in oneself. The album is streaming on all major platforms, and the physical CD can be acquired on the band’s website or at concerts.

"UFO" video shoot wrap

Vaidotas: this is a photo of the "UFO" video shoot wrap. I can boldly say that migloko• is the easiest person to write and work with. Currently the editing works are being finished. The new song and the video is coming out soon! Honestly, we cannot wait and, fingers crossed, hopefully everything will turn out just the way we imagined.

A few thoughts after "Yes, I Do" concerts in Kaunas and Klaipėda

1. Kaunas is a rapidly reviving and cozy city.
2. Klaipėda has an unconventional venue which we really enjoyed playing in. This shows that the port city want to be alive not only during the summer.
3. It was pleasant to see that people knew and sang more than three of our songs.
4. It's very nice to feel listeners' positive energy.
5. Most often you don't need any kind of glitter or super effects, you don't need pomp, all you need is the feeling of honesty and sharing it. 
6. Everything happens for a reason.
7. We are such happy people!
8. All band members cannot wait until this Thursday, the last of the "Yes, I Do" concerts in Vilnius, Loftas.

WE ARE HAPPY! THANK YOU!

WE ARE HAPPY! Why? Because yesterday in the "Žalgirio Arena" we heard YOUR supportive cheering and applause with our own ears. With our own eyes we saw how hard you all voted. We finished 3rd in the National Eurovision Selection marathon! It was a unique night full of wonderful moments. We received more than we could handle and to show how thankful we are we will soon announce 'Yes, I Do" tour dates to see you again and to sing together! THANK YOU, this is just the beginning 🙏🌞🎵🎤🎸

Acoustic version of "Yes, I Do"

Introducing an acoustic version of "Yes, I Do". The video was made in the rehearsal studio where the song was born. This version is not a candidate to replace the original, but it just sounds great and delivers the emotion. This is exactly how most songs sound in the beginning of the writing process.

We are not just a Eurovision project

We are not just a Eurovision project. For over three years we are actively writing music and playing concerts. Many people found us only now, and we congratulate you with that! ;) Many keep asking whether we have released any albums and where to find them. Yes, we do have two albums, the debut "To Whom It May Concern" and last Fall's "Ghosts".

You can find our music on all major music platforms. At the same time you can buy CDs. Currently in all Caffeine shops in Vilnius you will find not only coffee, but also "Ghosts".

If you live elsewhere from Vilnius or if you'd like to get signed CDs, order them online and get them delivered to your place. By the way, the price of both albums together is very attractive ;) https://theroop.bandcamp.com/
