ELLiS·D’s latest venture is a full-throttle guitar-led single with kaleidoscopic production and mind binding eeriness. Released at the start of June, the leftfield release flirts between slowly drawn verses and choruses that shine in pooles of falsetto prior to their car-chase climax.
Discussing the release, ElliS·D explains:
“I wanted to set aside my preconceived ideas of what it means to dissociate from yourself and explore why we feel the need to escape from our identity. In trying to figure out who we really are, we often look to those closest to us for answers – and find solace in the reflection of ourselves we see in them.”
With an early noughties charm and a late 90s grit, the track harks back to the MGMT’s blurry eyed second album, Maximo Park’s juxtaposing choppy guitarwork and Morrisey’s poetic and fine-tunes whaling. All of which makes for the perfect guitar anthem.
