Northern indie-pop artist Ellur returns with her new single ‘Close To You’. The single follows on from the 21-year-old Halifax artists’ empowering EP titled Moments, which came out in 2021 via Dance To The Radio Records.
With her inspirations ranging from HAIM to Cocteau Twins, Ellur writes self-detrimental love letters to herself in the form of danceable guitar anthems, which reflect on rejection, craving validation, and independence. Her new single ‘Close To You’ is a shining examples of Ellur’s ability to write deeply infectious, feel good indie-pop anthems, combining warm guitar lines with hook heavy vocals and powerful drums.
Speaking on the single Ellur says, “’Close To You’ is a song about rejection and coping with it. I decided, last year, I wanted to write more songs that were about me and my relationship with myself. I think this process birthed some of my favourite lyrics I’ve ever written.”
