Hello guys! Welcome to the Eurovision universe! How are you?
HEY! We are great! thank you!

How would you describe ZiBBZ?
We're a Swiss sibling duo - home in Los Angeles & Zurich. Living for music - with no plan B.
You are one of the participants of the Swiss National selection for ESC 2018. How did it all begin?
We used to watch ESC with our family when we were kids. We always had in mind to perform on ESC one day but never felt our kind of music/performance really had a chance until the more recent years where there are more diverse acts and songs accepted. Common Linnets were our favorite so far! 
“Stones” is the title of your song, and it’s written by you two and Laurell Barker. How was it to work with her?
Yes! She is an amazing, kind, fast thinking force of nature and we were so honored to write together!
What’s the story behind the song?
The message is something which moves us all deeply and is sadly still a problem in today’s world. It’s about inclusion, equality, diversity and tolerance. It’s a call to stand up against bullying and hate. 
Describe the song with 4 words:
Inviting, groovy, powerful, honest

What can we expect to see on stage for the performance?
We have designed an amazing little set up for the Swiss final show and we know we’re going to give 120% and enjoy every minute. that’s all we can do. The rest is up to the audience!
What do you like about Eurovision?
That it brings people of all races together.

What do you dislike about Eurovision?
We used to feel like “organic” / indie artists didn't have a chance… but that has changed!
