FRESH: ‘Good On My Own’ – Elin Bellander

Elin Bellander says she’s “Good On My Own”

Swedish singer/songwriter Elin Bellander has just released her new single, “Good On My Own”, an amazing electro-pop song with 80’s vibes while remaining contemporary and with a wicked hook to it. “Good On My Own” was created with NYC artist/songwriter/producer Skyle Cocco in New York, with Elin writing the melodies and lyrics in her Stockholm bedroom.

“Good On My Own” is Elin’s first release of 2020 and follows her first two singles, “Overdue” and “Pretend”, both in 2019 and is about self love and fully embracing your independence, essentially being your own best friend (as cheesy as that may sound). Elin tells us: “After getting out of a long term and super co-dependent relationship, I found myself in the midst of all this new found freedom and self discovery which inspired the concept of the song”.

“Good On My Own” was written and produced with many thousands of miles separating Elin and Skyle but the fact that they both connected with a complete stranger on the other side of the Atlantic and made the song during the current state of the world was “super cool” says Elin. “We managed to find a vibe as creatives even though we’ve never met in person, and this was all done through social media. Exciting to know that you can create connections and make magic even though the world is going throughtrying times right now”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
