Rising Danish R&B act Elias Boussnina makes his debut on TWIB with his new single “Summertime Blue”. The track exudes a love-laden, nostalgia-inducing vibe with its lush textures courtesy of producers Lauritz Emila Christiansen (David Guetta, Ella Eyre, Sigala) and Oliver Cilwik (Christopher, Alexander Oscar, Malte Ebert). Backed by such an alluring backdrop, Boussnina details the highlights of a perfect summer and a blossoming relationship that etched itself into his mind and heart. Boussnina further adds that the song was inspired by last summer which came after what seemed like a long winter and he wanted to write a song that reflected his affection for the warmest period of the year.
Of Danish-Tunisian descent, Elias speaks English, Danish, Arab and French. He grew up listening to hip-hop and American soul and first found success in 2015 under the moniker of Rap artist Yung Coke. When that project came to its natural conclusion, Elias began writing more R&B infused tracks and transforming his sound and identity into the expertly crafted art you hear today. Tracks from Elias’s debut EP ‘Shameboy’ and recent release ‘Closer’ were released to critical acclaim in Denmark and supported online globally by the likes of Complex, God Is In The TV and Colors. Following the recent success, Elias has just been announced as the model for Calvin Klein by Storm Copenhagen, one of the highest-profile concept stores across Scandinavia and Europe. The rising star will continue to release new music throughout 2019 and performs at Denmark’s Wonderfestiwall in August.
August 11th – Smukfest Skanderborg
August 15-17 – Wonderfestiwall
