Shares video for new single ‘Enough’
London-based artist Eloise today releases her beautiful mini-album ‘Somewhere In-Between’, out now on Harbour Music. The 21-year-old talent has also shared the video for her new single ‘Enough’ and announced the date change of her sold out show at London’s Lafayette to August 20th (tickets here) and she’ll be playing at All Points East Festival on August 27th. The dreamy first track from the project, ‘Hungover’, received great support from BBC Radio 1 and earned Eloise the BBC Introducing Track of the Week.
‘Somewhere In-Between’ is Eloise’s much-anticipated mini-album and proves a deeply honest, reflective, warm and immensely romantic body of work. Her re-introduction to her adoring fan base, ‘Hungover’, was closely followed by the timeless, soothing track ‘Intertwined’, which perfectly envelops the listener in a dreamy and idealistic relationship, flowing alongside a sunny guitar riff, before uttering, “our time’s been and gone, but my heart won’t move on from you”. ‘Who’s She’ is the latest single, which is accompanied by a gorgeous visual directed by Nicolee Tsin, recorded in one-take and set on a rooftop as Eloise and a partner intertwine and dance together against the alluring pink sunset.
Eloise’s new track and video, ‘Enough’, is another profoundly open and poignant track, with the clip awash in pink and orange, showing Eloise thoughtful and musing. In Eloise’s own words, ”‘Enough’ is a song about the first time I ever felt like I was too much for someone. I think a lot of people experience self doubts early on in a relationship, but I think feeling like you’re overwhelming someone is a niche type of doubt. I wrote this song because I made the decision to turn my self doubt into appreciation. Appreciation of my bubbliness. So that rather than hating myself for it, I would know that it’s just who I am rather than something that flaws me.”
Eloise has a rare ability for occupying and relaying the gruelling place somewhere between being in love and being broken-hearted, as she explains: “I feel my job is to write about all the ugly feelings: the things that are in-between fuck you songs and being in love songs”. ‘Somewhere In-Between’ is an incredibly raw and unguarded 9-track soundtrack to Eloise’s experiences between adolescence and adulthood, in and out of love, and represents a huge leap forward artistically for Eloise. Eloise has had enough incredible experiences to fill several lifetimes, and her uniquely fresh and contemporary voice means she undeniably stands out from the crowd.
Eloise explains of the album, “This mini album is my love letter to love and its woes. It’s mainly a collection of songs that I wrote from a place of hindsight, reflection and acceptance. A lot of the themes of this body of work are of longing and aching for yesterday and its possibilities, which, I reckon, is relatable to most people. I think that the different shades and angles of romance aren’t explored often enough. I want people to know that love is so messy and we don’t always get it right and that’s okay. We are all humans without a clue, trying to navigate staying happy and alive… And if you’re lucky, love is what happens in between."
Capturing the hearts of many with her acclaimed debut EP ‘This Thing Called Living’, the EP now counts over 25 million streams. Eloise’s unique talent for beautifully delicate storytelling proved a very welcome breath of fresh air in the musical landscape of the time, translating the songs effortlessly into intoxicating live performances, she has toured extensively since the release of her debut and played over 100 shows. You can next witness her magic live at her sold out show at London’s Lafayette on August 20th – tickets are on sale now here.
In a testing time for new artists, Eloise is a talent with the capability to cut through the noise with her take on timeless soul packed with youthful verve; her star is firmly in the ascent.
