Elias Boussnina has released dope new anthem ’Come Alive’ via Universal Music Denmark, taken from his debut album set for release Spring 2020. ’Come Alive’ follows hit singles in Elias’s native Denmark ‘Closer’, ‘Summertime Blue’ and ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. The track is such an imitate banger. When the song starts, his vocals instantly hits you with those moving tones in his vocals ever so slightly and the light piano playing in the background that turns into a powerful bassline and catchy chorus. I love how this track combines R&B, pop and some form of hip hop to create such a banger from this artist. I also like the distort vocals you hear at points of the song that give you that dark kind of vibe for just a second. The production is outstanding.
Elias said about ‘Come Alive’“Every time I work with incredible industry talent, I learn something new and evolve as an artist, I love how it stops me from getting stuck in my old routines. ‘Come Alive’ embraces that change. I was singing in the studio with Ronni and he started playing this epic piano riff and from that point, we just knew the song needed to be as huge and emotional as that sound. ‘Come Alive’ is about being willing to do ANYTHING for something or someone you love. Embracing that all-encompassing feeling is exactly what we wanted to express from the moment Ronnie started playing that monumental piano riff.”
The single was co-written and produced by renowned Danish writer and producer Ronni Vindahl (Kendrick Lamar, MØ, Avicii).
Tracks from Elias’s debut ‘EP Shameboy’ were released to critical acclaim in Denmark and supported online globally by the likes of Complex, God Is In The TV, Conversations About Her and Colors. Recent releases have amassed over 10 million streams on Spotify alone and garnered the artist over 420k monthly listeners.
Following the recent success, Elias was announced as the model for Calvin Klein by Storm Copenhagen, one of the highest-profile concept stores across Scandinavia and Europe, and is set to perform a series of live shows across Denmark in March, followed by a host of summer festivals.
Elias will continue to release new music in early 2020. I could defiantly listen to a full project of this artist’s vocals. Give me more music Elias!
