Hanna Lindgren, known as Constine, is a Swedish singer, songwriter, musician and producer.
She’s taken full control of her art and is committed to releasing music under her terms, on her own label. Constine explains: “Being by own boss just suits me the best because it means I’m in charge, I make all the decisions and most of all I’m in control. When it comes to something so personal and precious as your art I think you lose yourself if you let others decide for you what your art should look like or sound like.”
Her sound is a blend of melodramatic, lowkey indie-pop and up-tempo dance music, reminiscent of Melanie Martinez and Sky Ferreira. A unique voice on top of electronic, yet organic, beats and exotic instruments is what makes it.
Swedish tastemaker Kingsize magazine described Constine’s voice as “one of the most interesting in Sweden.”
Taken from her forthcoming debut EP, ‘Die’ is about paradoxes; about someone who is close, yet terribly far away at the same time. It channels the emotion of being on the verge of losing yourself.
Constine tells us: “The song is about the feeling of being on the verge… It’s about when you’ve lost yourself, in someone or something. Both those feelings can be completely magical but also so damn unpleasant.”
The track offers a dark soundscape – beautiful, broken, magical and tragic at the same time. The image perfectly matches that depicting courage and strength one needs to be able to rise above those who try to bring you down.
With her expressive voice and uncompromising artistic vision, Constine is set to take 2018 by storm, starting with her debut track ‘Die’.
