With her gentle voice and “sad but sloppy” guitar playing, Majken is fast becoming a Get In Her Ears favourite. The Swedish songwriter has released her latest single ‘This War Belongs To You’ – another low-fi gem written in the same vein as it’s predecessor, ‘Lovely Daughter’.
Speaking of the new track, Majken explains: “The song is about self-preservation. The tension that is built up over the first two minutes bursts as the synths come in like a wall of tears. I was very young when I wrote this song, but my chest still gets heavy whenever I perform it.”
Majken has been writing songs since the age of fourteen, dealing with themes such as adolescent insecurity, desires of the heart, and her own mental health. Her musical insight in to these issues is sure to make her debut album (scheduled for release this Autumn via Kollektivet Records) a heart-wrenching, but valuable listening experience.
