INDIEcent Exposure #40:11 tracks from all over the map

July 22, 2020

Hey, whazzup, dogs? Thanks for tuning in to Episode #40 of INDIEcent Exposure. I’m your host, the mongrel, and this week’s show is absolutely bustin’ at the seams with great tunes. I love featuring interviews, but I also kinda love an episode that’s just front to back music. In fact, I’m going to save the opening monologue and get straight to a block of tunes I’ve been waiting forever to unpack.

Singer songwriter, and rising Dark Pop phenom, Annelie Elina, splits her time between Los Angeles and her native county of Sweden. She brings us the track “Recover” from her latest  EP Purity. Despite the name, and despite her tender young age of sixteen, do NOT be fooled. It’s a welcome relief from the cotton candy tracks being spun in other sectors of the pop world. Or rather, if her wispy trilling tricks you into thinking you’ll be tasting sweet fluff, a couple of earfuls quickly educate your soundbuds that the gossamer strains carry flavors of longing, disillusionment, fearlessness, uncertainty, self-assurance, and vulnerability. This release represents a very, very promising start to the career of a new artist.

With this in mind, I really think about how the lyrics, beat, and vocals will make my audience feel. Some of my biggest inspirations are Billie Eilish, Julia Michaels, Lennon Stella, LÉON, Madison Beer, Alec Benjamin, Clairo and many more!I wrote my first original song "Staring at the Sun" after coping with losing somebody very close to me…Made me feel calm and relieved after writing about it. I wrote 4 more original songs that year in 2016 and you...
