Hanna Ögonsten – Goodbye My Darling


Saying goodbye and letting go of people we care dearly about can be an arduous task for anyone to take on. Knowing they’re going away to somewhere new, moving onto a new life where you’re not in the picture or simply just drifting apart as the years go on, it becomes a desolate moment when without you even knowing it had been a forlorn conclusion. However, as Hanna Ögonsten softly sings with her celestial timbre, at every end is a new beginning and Goodbye My Darling is a beautiful ode to this.

With a sound that’s akin to a more stripped back take of Robyn’s iconic track Dancing On My Own, Ögonsten finds a somber joy within the sadness as her charmingly melodic production gently glides along as her voice dazzles like a diamond. Her delicate timbre perfectly encapsulates the vulnerable feeling of saying goodbye to someone, losing them from your life, mixed with an underlying feeling of content knowing that it’s a new beginning for them and hopefully for you too. The saudade lyrics wrap themselves around you in a cathartic moment that allows you to soak up your emotions, all before releasing them in a calming yet reinvigorating breath.
