Elina is only on her fourth single but the Swedish singer and songwriter is already capturing the full attention of the listeners. Her latest song “Mirage” continues her onslaught towards the center-stage of the Scandinavian pop scene. The stripped-down piano ballad is a follow up to her debut “Wild Enough” and follows ups “Champion” and “Here With Me“, which as we previously indicated, all reaffirm her position among powerful vocalists. “Mirage” voices Elina’s frustration with love. The lyrics expresses the impuissant situation she finds herself in.
“‘Mirage’ is about the aftermath of being left behind. About the struggles to get rid of the past and the memories of someone you’ve lost. It takes place in the very centre of destructiveness before you’re able to move on. In the calm after the storm you start to regret that you didn’t do things differently in a relationship when you had the chance, you start to remember the good times and you become obsessed by making things right again. Even if it’s all a waste of time“, Elina says
