Elina Eriksson unveils moving and intimate debut track “Discover Her”.
After having lived in London for 5 years, singer-songwriter-producer Elina Eriksson decided to go back to her hometown, Stockholm, to focus on her musical career.

Dealing with unfaithfulness and reflecting on this past love affair, the vulnerable song is a beautiful and moving introduction from a very promising up and coming artist. Listen below.
