Album review: Elias - Entwined
Share This Article:
Swedish artist, Elias, has spent the past three years spilling out his soul into debut album Entwined. It is raw, honest and emotional, but his exploration of the human condition lacks the optimism that we all desire. Elias's voice is something special, there is no denying that. It carries a raspy tone, similar to that of James Arthur, and its soulful quality is of the same level as Rag'n'Bone Man. The combination of the two raises each track into an atmospheric quality that whisks you away into a new world that Elias has created. Individually, each track has been masterfully crafted in terms of production, and each lyric is saturated with meaning, but as a collective, the album falls flat. It fails to take you on a journey through contrasting emotions. Elias provides the sorrow, the desperation, even anger, but there is no optimism in sight, and it makes it challenging to listen to it in one go.
