Following the release of his single ‘Lazarus’, burgeoning London artist House of EL (aka Kieron McIntosh) releases his single, ‘You Don’t Know My Name’.
Having built firm foundations with 2018 releases ‘Hard Times’ and ‘Elijah’, featuring fellow London artists Jay Prince and Laura Mvula, House of EL’s debut release of this year is a poignant one. Carrying religious connotation, ‘Lazarus’ is a majestic statement of music guided by House of EL’s bold yet sombre tinged vocals, illuminating his natural aptitude for thought-evoking lyricism.
Speaking on the track, House of EL explains: “You don’t know my name I did when I was really digging into that 70’s funk sound at the time. You know…. Sly & Bootsie… I wanted to talk about relationships (as a change), it’s that feeling when someone claims to love you but doesn’t really understand you. I’m always intrigued as to why people get obsessed with someone else. Ultimately I think relationships are funny things because how can you really know anyone – I guess you just have to take that chance. Tom Ford on guitar and Karma Kid was on one, I think we wrote something like 3 tunes in one day – sometimes it just comes easy like that!”
