Edinburgh based Aino Elina is a singer-songwriter originally from Finnish Lapland. She’s currently writing and producing her debut album and Vankina is the first single to be made public in advance of its release. The track is a cool blend of electronica, ethereal vocals and hip-hop beats.
The Finnish word for ‘trapped’ or ‘imprisoned’, Elina says Vankina as a song about ‘inner struggle, damaging choices and the feeling of not being able to move on’. The track is currently available to buy on Bandcamp and other digital stores and to stream on Spotify
