Danish artist Mags recently unveiled her new single Elephant in the room, a thumping and obsessive pop number recorded last year in New York.
The song is part of her debut album, which will be released this coming fall.
“elephant in the room” is about the exact thing that the title implies, to be in a situation where there is an awkwardness surrounding because there are unsaid things. Often this is about stuff that is difficult to say because it may hurt others. To mags this song is very much in line with diary-like approach to songwriting and for her specifically these situations are often some that she tries to avoid, especially when they are in close relations. In the musical universe of mags the song is a classical way of working through things that are difficult and just like in her previous songs to be able to create music around a situation helps her to tackle everything better.
