Listen: Lena Katina is electric in her newest single “Silent Hills”

7

More than a decade after her thrillingly close third-place Eurovision finish as part of the faux Lesbian duo t.A.T.u, Lena Katina has a new solo single. The Russian beauty has released “Silent Hills”, which highlights her haunting voice along with a modern electronic beat.

Back in 2003, Lena was one half of the t.A.T.u, along with Yulia Volkova. They represented Russia in Riga and gave a memorable performance. But despite being one of the biggest bands in the world at the time, they had to settle for third place.

The t.A.T.u days are gone and Lena has been busy with her solo career in recent years. Her newest single “Silent Hills” is out and it is sizzling. With Lena’s haunting voice and a soft but pounding electro beat, not much can go wrong with this piece of musical art.

The song tells the story of a woman who is saying goodbye to her significant other, and moving on with her life, after facing the fact that they simply weren’t as compatible as she thought.

It starts off on a rather sad note, but in the end, the protagonist is looking towards the future with a smile on her face, knowing that one does not go through life without a few minor bumps along the way.

The song is not without humour. At one point she tells her ex, “You lost our wedding ring, Frodo”. When a woman is dishing some Lord of the Rings shade, you know it’s over!

“Silent Hills” lyrics – Lena Katina

I am happy, I’m all smiles
Just the grieving in my style
Just a problem I enjoyed
No more crying on my boy

Be afraid the things in your eyes affect me
You can’t feel air too electric
You lost our wedding ring, Frodo

I had a great fall like Humpty Dumpty
Seems like we are not on one team
Surely, it was all just a dream

Silent Hills
I know we were not real
I know we were not real

I applaud, you played the role
Just a killer in my soul
Now I’m frozen in a black hole
People can’t see I’ve gone cold

Be afraid the things in your eyes affect me
You can’t feel air too electric
You lost our wedding ring, Frodo

I had a great fall like Humpty Dumpty
Seems like we are not on one team
Surely, it was all just a dream

Silent Hills
I know we were not real
I know we were not real
I know we were not real

I am happy, I’m all smiles
Just the grieving in my style
