Silje Espevik is the artist behind Yndling, a dream-pop project. Having complete creative control over her music is what motivated her to embark on this musical journey. Out of My Way deals with the feelings of letting go in a relationship in a darkly emotive and introspective manner. Yndling’s convincing vocals flow smoothly over moody chords and glistening synthesizers. Compared to the verses, the chorus has a more symphonic feel.
Yndling describes the track as follows: “It’s about that stage in a relationship where you are half in, half out, and can’t really find a way to make things work or to let go properly. In a situation like that, it’s my experience that one part will get over things first, and kind of leave the other part behind. Meeting up again, and realising that the other person has a totally different view of the situation and is totally over it, is super hard. The title and hook of the song comes from that feeling – the feeling of having gone «out of your way» to please someone and make things work, thinking you did it together, and realising that they never put in the same effort and didn’t care as much as you did when it came down to it. That sort of thing is a real mindfuck to me, how two humans may perceive a situation so differently. It can make me feel so inferior and out of place.”
