Swedish artist Elma makes her introduction with an immediately engaging, soulful ballad – Does She.
Acoustically stripped, Elma’s mellow vocals ache with vulnerability and honesty as she questions her ex-partner in a hauntingly empathetic style.
Written by Elma, a standout line is;
/ You’re a broken roller coaster /
which resonates as a perfect description of the bitterness and sadness behind love lost.
