Swedish artist and renowned songwriter Elina (real name Elina Stridh) has shared her first track of 2020 and it is stunning.
Telling a relatable story about finding resilience and hope in the throes of grief, Elina describes ‘Paper Planes’:
“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.”
