Elias Boussnina shares ‘Summertime Blue’ via Universal Music Denmark on July 12th, the follow-up single to ‘Closer’, released in June 2019, as the young artist continues to focus on the positives.
‘Summertime Blue’ reflects on the magical moments of a perfect summer, stimulating a contentment that feels impossible to replicate. Produced in collaboration with Lauritz Emila Christiansen (David Guetta, Ella Eyre, Sigala) and Oliver Cilwik (Christopher, Alexander Oscar, Malte Ebert) the song is awash with warm textures and deep atmospheres that encourage the mind to drift away to those rare summertime moments.
The tasty guitar riffs and simple bass are all Elias needs for his silky vocals to shine on. He's got that melancholy tone that one could listen to all summertime without turning blue ;) His adlibs provide a Frank Ocean - Channel Orange type of ambience too.
Speaking about the single, Elias said
“’Summertime Blue’ encapsulates the nostalgic feeling you get when you think of a magical period in your life that can’t be re-created. For me, this time was last summer. Going through a long winter, that summer-period started to feel really distant. I wanted to write a song that reflected the affection I have for that particular period in my life. Summertime Blue almost feels like the flipside to the previous release ‘Closer’.”
Following recent success, Elias has just been announced as the model for Calvin Klein by Storm Copenhagen, one of the highest-profile concept stores across Scandinavia and Europe. The rising star will continue to release new music throughout 2019 and performs at Denmark’s Wonderfestiwall in August.
