As the Northern hemisphere readies for its impending Winter you can always seek warmth from singer-songwriter ELINA, who today provides all the company you need on new single “Champion” ahead of her debut EP in Spring.
Her vocals & music offer something welcoming on Champion, but it’s in with a deeper dig into her lyrics that you find it’s not quite the case. In a way most can relate to at some point of their lives, there’s an unease & vulnerability in not knowing the answers to how their hearts desire feels back.
“To me, Champion is about fear” explains ELINA, who writes music that is deeply personal & honest, continuing “Personally, when I get scared of losing someone or if I feel inadequate in a relationship – any relationship – I tend to disguise that fear with rejection.Sometimes even with anger. I think it’s a very easy-to-see-through attempt to hide that you’re hurt or vulnerable. “I’m scared of losing you” becomes “I don’t need you”.
“The meaning of “break my heart like a champion” is basically a request to your loved one not to break your heart slowly or gently. Sometimes the fall hurts even more than actually hitting the ground – it’s easier to know what will happen instead of fearing it and to live in uncertainty. It’s like ripping of a band-aid, the slower you rip the more it hurts.“
