Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Marie Antoinette”?
Marie Antoinette is my kind of satirical, ironic spin on the crime of passionideology that we see so much in films and media. I’m a massive fan of Tarrentino films and exaggerated romances and wanted to play into the madness of it by injecting some humour and bitterness into the Romeo and Juliet ideal.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I remember seeing a picture on Instagram of one of those massive silk dressing gowns with the feathers and it had been captioned with something referencing murder, wine and marble floors and that is what got the idea for the song started.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes a video will be out very soon, it really plays into the weirdness and ideas of the song with wedding veils and pink decor so I am very excited for everyone to see it!
How was the recording and writing process?
I really enjoyed he writing process for Marie Antoinette because I had been saving up the lyrical ideas in the song for a while so I wrote he whole thing in one manic sitting. The song started with a sample my producer Rory Simmons sent over and I was really taken with how it had a sense of playfulness to it as well as the icy undertones which made it ideal for the particular story I wanted to tell.
How’s your new EP coming along?
I am really proud of the EP, it has a real range of moods and ideas to it so I was glad to release it alongside this single to really draw people into my world.
Any plans to hit the road?
No plans yet but it is something I am very keen to do, live performance is my favourite thing! But I do have a headline show on the 23rd of August at Paper Dress Vintage.
What else is happening next in Eloïse’s world?
More music making and live shows definitely! I am working on tracks now to hopefully release another single in September.
