Elina Lee is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Cardiff, Wales. Not too long ago, she released a cinematic music video for her sensational debut single, entitled, “Déjà Vu,” produced by Keve Szatmári.
Elina Lee – “Déjà Vu” music video
The audiovisual, inspired by The Matrix movie, was filmed and edited by Ronson Huyhn and Zawadi McPhoy Odenyo. The video depicts a dream-like state that is in tune with the overall feeling of the track, which mirrors Elina Lee’s authentic relationship to her art. Also, the video is a glimpse into her mental discord and tells a story of two souls who meet up every now and then. However, the only common ground they actually share is the feeling of loneliness.
Throughout the day and nighttime hours, the young woman thinks about her distant partner. In an intimate delivery of lines, she places herself in hot-and-cold states that leave her unsure about her own feelings and desires. Later, she tells her partner, “Now you’re gone and I’m alone, and 2 AM, I think about you. 4 AM, you alright now? 5, I forgot all about you. Morning, you’re still on my mind.”
“Can you feel me over you?”
“‘Déjà Vu’ is about having a shared moment or experience with someone and moving on. But having this sensation in your mind that it never happened. It’s a sort of brain fog similar to the feeling of deja vu.” – Elina Lee explained
As it shifts from regret-filled lust to unintended negligence, “Deja Vu” may just be the perfect soundtrack for reminiscing those drunken nights brought to you by messy situationships and late-night texts. Also, the song displays the different levels of shared intimacy that come with modern-day romances that capture the reflective musings of love and lust with potential romantic partners in this day and age. Furthermore, the song serves as a wonderful introduction to what listeners can expect to hear from Elina Lee in the near future as she continues to release new music.
“Do you go back in time?”
Elina Lee grew up in Sweden with Thai roots. Her passion is making music while riding the Stockholm metro to school on a daily. Growing up, she would often use this downtime to scribble lyrical poetry lines in her notebook. Vastly inspired by the beautiful underground art of Stockholm’s subway stations, this hobby would soon develop into a full-fledged talent in songwriting and music.
Elina cites Majid Jordan, Joji, and Snoh Aalegra among her musical influences. Constantly growing inspired by other creatives and close friends, the multifaceted musician is among the many contemporary acts of 2022 that elevate and bridge different genres to new heights on the music scene.
“Just be honest Don’t ignore it.”
“It’s like a shared experience, I just want to keep producing music while also being able to bring up and showcase fellow creatives and friends in the process. It’s a beautiful thing.” – Elina Lee stated
‘Déjà Vu’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and catchy melodies. The nostalgic tune possesses ’80s-inspired synth-laden production bursting with contemporary pop, trap, electronics, and indie R&B elements. Also, “Déjà Vu” brings forward a refreshing form of storytelling that is bound for success.
