Elina Filice – Don’t Let Me Fall

Elina Filice was born to Canadian parents, spent her formative years in Singapore, University years in Canada, and several years in Dublin. There, she founded her own record label. She’s now somewhere on the West Coast. 2021 was a busy, but successful year for Elina. Her sophomore EP Flight Risk was well received and streamed over 1 million times on Spotify.

Influenced by blues and spoken word, her music is soulful and melodic. New single Don’t Let Me Fall adds a certain danceability to the palette. It features funky guitar licks layered over an infectious beat, complete with an anthemic hook. Though dark and brooding, the song pulsates with manic, driving energy. The dark lyrics lament the weight of loving someone who is in a depressive decline. The song examines the tandem downward spiral of tangled mental health, and the terrifying pressure of someone begging you to save them.

Elina says: “We’ve all been in the situation or know someone who’s been in a relationship or friendship where someone is relying on you for their stability. It’s incredibly scary being stuck in a dark tango with someone who you care for but are unable to help. What they threaten to do if you leave them leads to a toxic and painful cycle.”
