From pressing play on ‘över dig under dig‘, it’s obvious there is a contradiction between the artist’s name and her music. The colour beige is often seen as bland, safe and somewhat traditional. There’s simply nothing beige about this beige.
The Swedish singer, songwriter, and producer, beige (Lina Einarsson) makes her debut on our site with a Swedish sung single founded on vintage soul rhythm and suddenly punctured with unpredictable dynamics. Co-produced by beige and written together with Adam von Mentzer the song seems to glisten with her confident lyrics of love before the adrenaline injection of up-tempo vibes intersects, receding to the exquisite soul of the intro.
“The song is painful and beautiful just like being in love can feel like. To be completely knocked out by your own feelings but still get back up and fight for this one person who fills your thoughts.” – beige
Scandinavian soul music is built on soul music’s evolution, and beige’s single ‘över dig under dig‘ (Over you, under you – eng) sit’s itself in the genre’s foundation.
We salute her originality and applaud the result. We’ve already started painting a big heart to Beige. Guess the colour?
Red. Of course!
