The debut single from Linéa ‘You & I‘ remains one of the years most dreamy releases. The guitar-based single transfixed with a sensitive and engaging vocal – soulful and wonderfully elegant.
Now, the Danish-Swedish songstress returns with ‘What We Did In My Head‘ and a production layered in instrumentation and crafted with pop subtleties. Orchestrated with a scintillating guitar riff, catchy chorus and muffled horns it exhilarates with a reminder of music created in a ‘traditional’ studio. And again it’s the affable, gentle tonality of Linéa who makes this another distinguished release.
Talking about “What We Did In My Head” Linéa says
“(…) I knew from the beginning that I wanted to try and capture this kind of sentimental blue summer night vibe, and even though we changed a lot from start to finish, I’m so glad that we stuck with that emotional happy-sad mood of the track. It’s also very exciting to release something that’s quite different from “You & I” all the while still being very focused on maintaining the overall vision for the project (…) “If I have to describe the sound in terms of references, the foundation of “What we did in my head” is probably some sort of classic singer-songwriter pop/soul – for instance, I’m very into the writing of artists like John Mayer, Rhye, Lianne La Havas etc. – but then we’ve mixed it up with some horn arrangements that I think is more in the style of acts like D’Angelo and Quadron, so I’d actually say that the result is pretty much just a big gorgeous mix of a bunch of musical styles and sounds that I love!”
The song’s lyrics convey escaping the restlessness from knowing that you’re stuck in a place where you don’t want to be. Linéas’ varied and vibrant music influences are enabling her to approach music with an intriguing playfulness. Linéa is as an artist we’ve no plans to evade!
