Ellise caps 2022 with alt-pop gem ‘Did It Hurt’

LA artist, producer, and dark pop princess Ellise has shared her deeply personal alt-pop gem ‘Did It Hurt’ to cap 2022 on a high note. The song was written on the heels of a messy breakup that was extremely difficult to navigate. ‘Did It Hurt’ will be featured on Ellise’s upcoming album, due out in early 2023.

“‘Did It Hurt’ is a rare type of song for me,” says the 24 year-old Bay Area native. “When you have a lot to say, it simultaneously makes the writing process messy and seamless. No amount of studio time or consistency can force raw emotion because when it’s there, it’s just there. The erratic switches between acoustic guitars and drum-heavy beat drops, along with the melancholic outro, is genuinely a sonic metaphor for the full spectrum of emotions a person can go through in such a short amount of time while dealing with losing someone they love.”
