Uppsala-based artist and songwriter Gina Hannuksela releases her new single – The Weekend.
Last year, we were introduced to the burgeoning soulstress with her debut releases ‘Calling‘ and ‘Lose Myself‘, which gave us laidback R&B vibes with reflective lyrics. Now she returns with, for me, her best track to date.
Working with Uppsala-based producers Ayyy B and Gabbz, The Weekend offers a modern trap-influenced R&B track with an atmospheric soundscape. Written by Gina, her soulful melodies and soul-hop delivery flow like a moisturiser as she expresses the story of loneness. The bass is spongy, and the guitar chords bright and lively.
In a moving and touching statement, Gina said –
“I wrote ‘The Weekend’ a while ago but I feel it’s just as relevant now as then. I think you will experience loneliness your whole life, although sometimes more than others. For me, the weekends have resulted in a lot of lonely times and I often found myself looking forward to Monday. Because then you’re going to work or school where you’re surrounded by people.”
Let’s hope she never feels lonely again as she continues to attract worldwide fans.
The Weekend is Gina’s first release of 2022 with more tracks arriving soon.
