Swedish multi-talent Scharliina channels her own childhood trauma into a healing anthem on “Little Girl,” a lulling melody elevated by her soft lilting vocals that encapsulate a deeply personal and painful tale of bullying, child abuse, sexual assault and much more.
Rooted in vulnerable song writing and an emotive soundscape built upon gentle pianos, the track is intimate and heavy, unfolding as a way for the 22-year-old to embrace her pain, giving us a glimpse of her struggles while also comforting us with its pop-tinged instrumentation.
The track is a small part of something much bigger than music, accompanied by a non-profit called the Little Girl Project, which aims to prevent bullying and child abuse by bringing awareness and campaigning for strategies to heal, cope and prevent any such horrific acts.
Previously part of Swedish pop duo Lightworkers, Scharliina who has honed her skill at the piano since the age of six has risen as a solo talent showcasing her ability to write painfully honest songs laid over soothing sonic arrangements – revealing harsh truths of the world yet leading us to safety with its soft harmonies.
