Bulgarian band Equinox is to represent the country at the Eurovision song contest 2018 in Portugal’s capital city Lisbon in May, public broadcaster Bulgarian National Television said on March 12.

Equinox, joint project featuring five artists that was set up for the purpose of competing in this year’s Eurovision contest, includes Bulgarian singers Zhana Bergendorff, Georgi “JJ” Simeonov, Vlado Mihailov of Bulgarian band Slang, America’s Got Talent semi-finalist Johnny Manuel and songwriter Trey Campbell. The Equinox project is being made especially for the song contest this year, based on the idea of the producer and composer Borislav Milanov. The composition of Bones is the work of Borislav Milanov, in collaboration with Trey Campbell, Joakim Perschon and Dag Lundberg. Milanov and Persson have in fact composed several recent Eurovisive entries: "Beautiful mess" by Kristian Kostov , "If love was a crime" by Poli Genova , "In too deep" by Tijana Bogicevic and "Dance alone" by  Jana Burčeska .

"The song is a strong demand for Eurovision 2018 and our team believes in it. After the success of Bulgaria in the last two years, the expectations of viewers and fans from all over the world are very high and for us in the Bulgarian National Television it was important to choose a project to be noticed and to be different from everything that has been done so far, except that there is a universal message, “Bones” also offers very good opportunities for original stage performance, "said the producer of the Bulgarian participation in the contest Joanna Levieva - Sawyer.

The Equinox group, or ‘common framework’ as described on BNT’s Twitter feed, should be reliable vocalists. The slight reservation at the time of previewing the Bulgarian selection was that Zhana entered a song independently and her diction was terrible. And following the news that Bulgaria was in discussions with Loreen, it suggests Zhana was probably second or third choice. Even so, her part in the song will be minimal when compared to JJ’s lead role.

Back to Zhana and perhaps the group as a whole, the styling is extremely futuristic and incredibly off putting. They have the look of a cast of extras from a sci-fi B-movie. If this is the edgy, avant-guard concept intended for Lisbon, their chance of progressing from the semi-final, given the strength in the first half is in danger.

Identifying strongly with the song’s hook, Trey Campbell describes “Bones” he says the number transcends the physical side of love.

“[It’s about] loving someone beyond everything that you may see. Especially in these times, it is important to be looking deeper, to be caring deeper, to be caring about things that are not necessarily just of the physical. [“Bones”] should inspire people just to be more loving. If you love someone despite what what they look like or what their skin colour may be, you are actually loving the person — the human — first and foremost.”

Bulgarian public television has ensured, through its profiles on social networks, that the Swedish singer Loreen , winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 with the famous 'Euphoria' , was valued as a candidate to represent  the eastern country in Lisbon. However, the voice that appears in the demo version of the Bulgarian theme is that of Tamara Gachechiladze, representative of Georgia last year in Kiev.
