Beatrice Eli – The Conqueror by BeatriceEli
Combining heart-swelling vocals, offbeat production and wrenching lyrics about love and loss, “The Conqueror” may well be one of the most devastating yet beautiful pop songs you’re likely to hear all year.
‘The Conqueror’ might seem like a traditional love song, but I wrote it from seeing people – and being in a situation myself – where you find yourself loving the other person’s love more than being in love”, she explains. “It’s like if you manage to conquer his love and own his heart, even though you fail as a couple, at least you’ll be remembered. You’ll always be special for that person”.
Beatrice joins the wonderfully off-kilter lineage of Scandinavian pop queens, stretching from defiant experimentalists like Fever Ray to critical and chart darlings such as Lykke Li, Oh Land, Robyn and more.
Beatrice says: “I’d want to be the badass daughter of Jackie Brown. I think it’s gonna take me some living experience to get to that level of fearlessness or badassness, but I’m working on it”.
