On this silky-smooth, emotive electro-pop song, SHY Martin showcases her wonderful talent for channeling emotions into music, depicting how the power of feelings can easily overwhelm you and take you to an irrational place.
The electronic beat blends flawlessly with the rhythm, her silky-smooth melodies and angelic vocals. In the lyrics, she reflects on the moment when you’re caught up in your emotions and realize that you’re only a few words away from breaking something special, referring to a time when she felt lost in a whirlwind of her own feelings. “Now we’re so close to letting us go, without thinking of all of the things we’ll be missing, wasting all our feelings”, she sings. SHY Martin once again demonstrates her beautiful talent for channelling emotions into music, depicting how the power of feelings can easily overwhelm you and take you to an irrational place.
SHY Martin established herself as a songwriter at age 22 and has since then amassed over 2.5 billion streams for artists such as Ellie Goulding, The Chainsmokers, Kygo, Bebe Rexha and Astrid S. Sara Hjellström grew up in Lerdala and began writing songs and poetry as a child as a way of expressing herself. In 2017, she created her own world of addictive songs, which instantly made her one of pop’s brightest stars. In March 2021, she announced the start of SHY Recordings.
SHY Martin shares, “I was going through some major changes when we wrote ‘Feelings’ and felt extremely lost and exhausted. I wasn’t sure I wanted to release more music, so I stopped writing for myself for a while, but after writing this song I found myself listening to the demo every time I was working out or on my way to the studio. The lyrics were pretty much about what I was going through and had been feeling for a long time.”, SHY Martin says. “It’s about the moment you realize you’re a few words from breaking something that means a lot to you because you’re caught up in feelings”.
The new single ‘Feelings’ is SHY Martin’s third single release this year, following her previous releases ‘Break With Me’ and ‘Remember You Were The One’. It’s written by SHY Martin together with her long-time writing partner Litens Anton Nilsson (Astrid S, NOTD, LÉON), and Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson, Icona Pop, Benjamin Ingrosso), who also produced the song.
