The song finds the artist venturing into vulnerable territory of heartbreak with what is her most stirring vocal performance yet. “How A Heart Breaks” is now available on iTunes and Spotify.
In her latest single “How A Heart Breaks,” Holly Elle reflects on the pain and confusion of the heartbreak of a relationship veering south. Both opening and closing the song with the lines, “I never wanted to be your enemy,” Elle relates the realization of the possible consequences of love. “This song is just what it sounds like: the way you can’t fathom what it really feels like to have your heart broken until it happens,” Elle comments. “And there’s nothing you can do, but stand there in the depths of it, say ‘ow’, and wait to heal.” The heavy-hearted melody is driven by Elle’s rich and soulful voice and supported by the dramatic accompaniment of classic piano and strings. The ebb and flow of the instrumental and vocal harmonies intertwines, mirroring a merry-go-round of emotions that cuts to the core of the true experience.

Citing vocal influences from artists such as Mariah Carey and Monica, the song “How A Heart Breaks” is Elle’s take on classic ballads that shaped her own love for music.
