Elina – “Masquerade” single live
“‘Masquerade’ for me is an invitation to embrace everything that makes us human. All the self-doubt, the fear, the desires, the confusion that comes with letting someone in and loving them. I want it to be a voice of reason and a reminder to be kind to ourselves and to others, knowing that everyone is navigating through life with their own baggage.” – Elina
‘Masquerade’ asks listeners to lean in and embrace everything that makes being human great.
The likable tune discusses a young woman’s innermost turmoil, anxiety, and loneliness.
Elina – “In Hindsight” EP
“At the beginning of making this EP, I was in a bit of emotional limbo. I was very confused. All my life I had found comfort in knowing that creativity came fluently for me, with ease. Now I was at a point where it didn’t. I went through a lot of change in my personal life, and somewhere along the way I sort of lost the main reason I started writing music in the first place, as an outlet, the oasis it was for me. Instead, it had become associated with anxiety, and writing was a complete struggle.” – Elina
Elina is one of the boldest new voices in Scandinavian pop music. She creates timeless conversational pieces which connect perfectly with her adoring fanbase.
It was not too long ago when she opened her music account. Since then, she has amassed over 40M streams online via Spotify from previously released singles such as Champion, Wild Enough, Here With Me, and Mirage.
“The person I was identifying myself as suddenly had very narrow balks to balance on. It came to a point where I had to regain some focus and some of this lost trust in myself. So this EP started coming to life. The scenarios in the songs were very present in my own life at the time. Through them, I could build a creative place without pressure and guidelines.” – Elina
Elina opens up and pours her heart and soul on every song featured on her “In Hindsight” EP.
The emo-pop project contains relatable storylines, ear-welcoming vocals, and heart-wrenching lyrics. Also, it includes simple-stripped back instrumentation flavored with sentimental elements.

Elina – “In Hindsight” EP
“Dealing with destructive thoughts and feelings came with a lot of loneliness. We create our ideas of what life and happiness are supposed to look like by scrolling our fingers until bloody watching feeds where all traces of reality are removed. It’s misleading. Life shamelessly serves you a broken heart, loneliness, pain, loss, and tragedy. We definitely need each other’s support to get through it and by keeping ourselves and others believe that we’re relieved of vulnerability we are heading in an even lonelier direction I think. We’re all fighting battles at the end of the day. That is what I want to shed some light on with this EP. To hopefully, with these songs, make it a bit easier to talk about the things that burden you, knowing it’s neither weak nor shameful.” – Elina
