TUNE Cecilia Ebba - Just Fantasy
Just Fantasy is about the beautiful vs the ugly, the expectations vs the reality that comes with big dreams and big cities. In a city like London you get the extremes of everything, the rich, the poor, the glamour and the gutter rubbing shoulders right next to each other and for someone who grew up in a small town in northern Sweden this urban chaos can sometimes become overwhelming. In her lyrics Cecilia has embodied London as a cold yet intriguing person who she's been desperately trying to keep up with and the conflict of the love-hate relationship comes across in the delicate melodies which are contrasted against the unapologetic lyrics. Together with Lucas Mendes, they've dressed the song in a guitar and synth heavy production with elements that draws comparisons to the likes of MarikaHackman and Brooke Bentham. Beautifully melting it all together is Cecilia's soaring voice and layered harmonies, something that has become a signature of Cecilia's sound.
