Review: "I Should've Danced More" - Elina

In this world, we are surrounded by constant reminders that life is too short. Though sometimes tragic, these reminders usually inspire us to live our lives to the fullest with no regrets. "I Should've Danced More" by Elina is one of those reminders, telling you not to second guess yourself and to go for anything and everything you want out of life. Don't waste your time with "I should've done this" and "I should've done that", and just do whatever your heart desires! You shouldn't be afraid to follow your hopes and dreams, because you only get one life and you're living it right now.

Listening to "I Should've Danced More" is such a cathartic experience. This stripped-back folk-pop song features gorgeous, finger-picked acoustic guitar, paired with Elina's soft and classic vocal tone. Stunning harmonies accompany the melody to really bring the track to another level. The pure emotion in Elina's voice and the reverb makes you feel like you're floating in a dream. The soundscape is just so ethereal and delicate. If I close my eyes while listening to this song, I'm transported to a front-porch in the old-country, staring out at a field of grass and endless sunset. This song feels like hope.

Elina is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Sweden. Although she began her career as a solo artist in 2018 with her debut single, "Wild Enough", Elina had been writing for other artists before then; names like Zara Larsson, Maroon 5, SZA and more. "I Should've Danced More" is her second single off of her upcoming debut album, "Whatever Happens Now", the first single being "Apologize". The album is themed around letting go of the past and closing a chapter in your life, living in acceptance and peace. Elina has over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify and has amassed millions of streams over on her entire discography so far.
