Elevator Love

The Charms of Difficult Love

Norwegian pop artist Christine Ekeberg releases “Elevator Love”, a bouncy song about the temptations of tough love. In contrast to her latest single, this release has a danceable, sassy tone that reminds of electropop artists like Daya or Kiiara.  

“The story is told from the perspective of one of the people in a relationship who feels she has the upper hand”, Ekeberg tells us. “She claims that she has a lot of guys to choose from. The boyfriend is lucky she even wants to be in the same room as him.” 

The electropop style of “Elevator Love” reflects the ups and downs of this relationship. “I love dramatic music, so of course we had to have an element of that in the song.”, Ekeberg explains. This is especially evident in the cinematic bridge that builds to a hurricane of emotions. 

This song was originally written and recorded three years ago at producer Are Sorknes’s studio. Back then the production was a bit different, but the melody and lyrics have stayed the same throughout the process. Ekeberg also collaborated with songwriter Morten Franck to create this song. 

Christine Ekeberg has been active as a songwriter and performer throughout her career. A silver medal in the World Championship of Performing Arts in Los Angeles and the semifinals at the International Songwriting Competition in 2020 are among her achievements.
