She’s the ex-Serebro front woman who was supposedly in the mix to represent Russia at Eurovision 2017. Of course, that honour instead went to Julia Samoilova and we all know how that ended up. However, Elena Temnikova proves that life goes on, releasing not one, but two new singles and a music video in recent weeks.

The first, “Vdoh” (Breath), is an upbeat EDM track which explores the emotions one feels when love is so strong that you become addicted to another person (hey, hey Serhat).

“I don’t feel my breath, yet, / You’re adding the poison in my glass,” Elena sings to her lover, “Meanwhile, we’ve gone crazy this night / And I depend on you.”

Next came “Golyie” (Naked) a modern trap-influenced electronica song with chilled-out beats. It’s another ode to love. This time, two lovers share an intimate relationship, both physically and emotionally.

“I dive with my head / in your weirdness, tenderness / Our new love / is without prohibitions and jealousy”.

Most recently, Elena dropped the music video for “Ne obvinyay menya” (Don’t Blame Me), a single first released in December 2016.

More downbeat than her other efforts, we see a more contemplative side to Temnikova. When she’s not studying the city skyline, she’s seductively lounging about her plush pad… as you do.

Elena Temnikova — “Vdoh” lyrics

Original lyrics

Na posteli sledy i netrezvyy rassvet v okne,
Ty menya promenyal, no vdykhayu tebya vdvoyne.
Eti kapli po telu sovsem ne ot dozhdya,
Znayesh’, ya zametno na tvoikh rukakh tayu.
Men’she sveta, my pryachemsya za polumrak,
A dal’she kak?

Chorus:
Ya ne chuvstvuyu vdokh, poka,
Dobavlyayesh’ mne yad v bokal
My pokhodu soshli s uma etoy noch’yu
I toboy ya zavisima
YA ne chuvstvuyu vdokh, poka,
Dobavlyayesh’ mne yad v bokal
My pokhodu soshli s uma etoy noch’yu
I toboy ya zavisima

Snova delayu vdokh, ponimayesh’ menya bez slov,
Bez ostatka s toboy rastvorimsya vo mgle gustoy.
Eti kapli po telu sovsem ne ot dozhdya,
Znayesh’, ya zametno na tvoikh rukakh tayu.
Men’she sveta, my pryachemsya za polumrak,
A dal’she kak?

Chorus

English translation

There are traces on the bed, in the window not a sober sunrise,
You’ve left me for somebody else, but I breath you in twice.
Those drops on my body entirely not from the rain,
You know, I’ve been noticeably melting in your hands.
Less light, in twilight we’re hiding,
And what then?

Chorus:
I don’t feel my breath, yet,
You’re adding the poison in my glass
Meanwhile, we’ve gone crazy this night
And I depend on you
I don’t feel my breath, yet,
You’re adding the poison in my glass
Meanwhile, we’ve gone crazy this night
And I depend on you

Again I’m breathing in, you understand me without the words,
We will completely melt in the thick darknes.
Those drops on my body entirely not from the rain,
You know, I’ve been noticeably melting in your hands
Less light, in twilight we’re hiding,
And what then?

Chorus

Elena Temnikova — “Golyie” lyrics

Original lyrics

Ya proshchayu tebe bol’
Tvoi gluposti, slabosti
Vazhno, chto teper’ so mnoy
Ty i v gore, i v radosti
My ostavim na potom
Vyyasneniya – kto iz nas prav
Vazhno, chto teper’ vdvoyom
Ya tak rada i
Ty tak rad

Chorus:
My sonnyye, golyie
V odnoy posteli
V odnu storonu golovy nashi
Kak my i khoteli
My sonnyye, golyie
V odnoy posteli
V odnu storonu golovy nashi
Kak my i khoteli-khoteli

YA nyryayu s golovoy
V tvoi strannosti, nezhnosti
Nasha novaya lyubov’
Bez zapretov i revnosti
My ostanemsya vdvoyom
Etot vecher – on tselikom nash
My ne znayem, chto potom
No ty zdes’ i ya
zdes’ seychas

Chorus

English translation

I forgive you for the pain
for your stupid things, your weaknesses
It’s important that now you’re with me
in bad and in good
Let’s leave for later
the explanations – which one of us is right
It’s important that now it’s both of us
I’m happy and
you are happy too

Chorus:
We’re laying sleepy and naked,
in one bed,
Our heads are on the same side
like we wanted
We’re laying sleepy and naked,
in one bed,
Our heads are on the same side
like we wanted, wanted

I dive with my head
in your weirdness, tenderness
Our new love
is without prohibitions and jealousy
We’ll both stay
this night – is all ours
we don’t now what’s next
but you’re here and
now I’m here too

Chorus

IMO, “Ne Obvinyay Menya” is the best out of these 3.
