Elina – “Paper Planes” music video
“At the time, two people in my life that I love dearly and care about very deeply had recently decided to walk their separate ways after a long, long time. I feel I subconsciously steered the lyrics in the direction of their story. I admire and respect their strength in wanting the best for each other and being supportive, selfless and strong throughout it all. This song to me is about that kind of strength. The ability to help each other pursue happiness, even if that means you can’t be together.” – Elina
‘Paper Planes’ tells a relatable tale about finding resilience and hope in the throes of grief. Also, the likable tune follows hot on the heels of Elina’s previously released singles including the folk-inspired “Free” and piano-driven “Another Round”.
“It’s important for me to try and shine more of a light on the value of self-esteem, especially with the pressures we all face in today’s society. I want to continue exploring that down the road with my next EP and hopefully reach a point where I can make a real difference using the platform I’m lucky to have.” – Elina
So far, Elina has garnered multiple awards including the 2018 ASCAP Pop Award, Best Contemporary Song nomination in the Ivor Novello Awards, and a Denniz Pop Award nomination. Also, she was honored with the Swedish Publishing Awards’ ‘Song of the Year’ for “Sexual” by NEIKED (which she co-wrote). Furthermore, she has penned hits for artists such as Zara Larsson, Astrid S, and others. Plus, her music has amassed over 100 million streams online via Spotify.
