Alternative-pop artist, Diana Ebe released her debut EP, Elusive Pleasure, packed with evocative synth melodies and haunting tales of heartbreak. With spellbinding charm and allure, Elusive Pleasure is a powerful statement of beauty and is now available on iTunes.
Ebe’s EP begins with the latest single, “Bold,” which opens perfectly as it simultaneously dwells in hindsight of failed love and sets the stage for the rest of the release. As Ebe repeats the hook, “we weren’t bold enough for love,” the pains become more apparent as her resonating vocals become more emphatic. Though the song explores the inability of Ebe and her lost lover to be bold enough, the confidence of her presence as she navigates the track prove her to be quite a bold force after all. The aptly titled track, “Dreaming” fuses classic notes of piano composition with crunchy and industrial percussion that complete a gorgeous soundscape. Wandering through a cycle of lucid dreaming in the song, it ends almost abruptly to mirror the experience of waking up. This segues perfectly into lead single title track, “Elusive Pleasure,” which is in fact about waking up to the reality that things are no longer working out. The title track’s amazing hook will stick with you long after your first listen, with vocals that are truly infectious. The closing track is a cover of the Little Dragon’s song, “Twice” and is layered in an intricate patchwork of sound. The Elusive Pleasure EP was recorded at Cold Pressed Studios and produced by MOOSE, Diana Ebe and Lucas Bomeny.
Raised in Stockholm, Sweden, Diana Ebe took to music at a young age and began piano lessons at the age of four. Soon after came voice lessons and at fourteen, she was training classically under the esteemed Swedish musical theater performer and producer, Andreas Eldeen. In 2013, Ebe decided to move across the world to Los Angeles, where she naturally fell into pursuing music seriously as a full-time musician. Shortly after relocating to California, Ebe wrote her first single, “Elusive Pleasure,” and has been producing new music ever since. With a dreamy, atmospheric sound akin to acts like Lorde and Lykke Li, Ebe’s music is inspired by daydreams, lust and love. Her music has already caught the attention of notable tastemakers and artists including The Doors’ guitarist, Robby Krieger.
With a haunting sense of mystery in her cinematic approach to pop, Diana Ebe proves a new force to be reckoned with in the Los Angeles music scene. With the release of her debut EP, Ebe is preparing to perform throughout Los Angeles, beginning with Malibu’s Smile Fest.
