Ellur shares emotive new single ‘Best Face On’

Northern indie-pop artist Ellur returns with her new single ‘Best Face On’. The new song follows on from the 21-year-old Halifax artists’ recent critically acclaimed single ‘Close To You’, as well as recent live dates which have seen her fast-becoming a must-see artist with fervent sets alongside the likes of The Big Moon, Deyaz, Baby Queen, and a packed out tour supporting Embrace.

Whereas ‘Close To You’ exhibited Ellur’s ability for writing feel-good, danceable guitar anthems, the new single ‘Best Face On’ exemplifies a different, more introspective side of her deeply infectious sound. The 80s influenced self-reflective ballad builds in intensity with delicate vocals, which swell and transform into ethereal harmonies alongside slow burning instrumentation. Strewn with huge synths, warm-effected guitar lines, and powerful drumming, the ruminative and highly emotive track is a further nod to the introspective and cathartic nature of Ellur’s songwriting.

Speaking on the single Ellur says, “’Best Face On’ is a letter from the present me and everything I’ve come to know, to the past version of myself. I wrote it retrospectively after last year, where I stayed out too late one too many times. I feel, for me, it’s a marker for the beginning of my adulthood. The lyrics beside the production really create the atmosphere of how I was feeling for a lot of last year. It’s a really emotional song for me and I’m so excited to release it.”
