EUROVISION 2022: Latvia - Citi Zēni

“The karma comes for free and so does luck
All aboard the green Titanic
Let‘s sail the world and then cruise the Atlantic
No ice in the way, no need to panic”

In 2009, five school friends wanted to improve their music skills, so they created ‘The Citizens’ band. They play some gigs around Riga, record some singles and in 2012 they released an EP, Truth. The Citizens also enter in different competitions and music contests. They debut, in 2015, another album called Concrete Dreams, and start getting more recognition, but after their activity decreased only with some performances. In 2019, they reemerged with fewer elements, an update name, ‘The Citizens LV’ and released their comeback single: “Skatos Uz Tevi”.
The band met Roberts and Dagnis in a songwriter camp outside of Riga, in 2020, started singing and playing together and soon they were new members of the band. It was the birth of Citi Zēni. In the same year they debuted their first single, “Vienmēr Kavēju”, which was followed for some others, and finally in 2021 they published the album: Suņi Iziet Ielās.
The next year the band participated on Supernova 2022, where they presented their new single called “Eat Your Salad”, which gave them the first place and the role of representing Latvia on Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
