Willow is a young Belgian indie rock band that started in 2007. They create solid, semi-danceable, catchy popsongs with hints of new wave. In their short existence Willow won several rockcontests, with most notably Rockvonk 2009. In 2010 they became 3rd in Humo’s Rock Rally and won the KBC public’s choice award. They are known for their energetic live performance and their refreshing take on music history while still being capable of maintaining their own sound.

The song didn't gain massive amounts of attention and failed to make an impact in the contest. They failed to qualify, though were only 5 points away from qualifying, and did mange to receive two sets of 12 points (To date the most a Belgian act has ever managed in a semi) from Finland Turkey (One of Belgium's biggest voting partners).
