Ever since her achingly sumptuous cover of Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice” back in 2013, Elli Ingram has been making waves with her soulful and husky tones. Fast forward to 2020, and did you hear that? The Brighton native has just ushered in spring with her irresistible warm weather bop “Bad Behaviour”.
Neo-soul, R&B and jazz amalgamate effortlessly, with a groove-laden intro opening the shoulder-shaking proceedings. Ingram’s unique vocals undulate on the catchy melody, playfully toying with the listener, scolding: “don’t you dare turn the lights on / I don’t want to go home yet”. And the visuals see the artist throwing it back to warmer climes at Brighton Pride. Take us back now.
“Bad Behaviour isn’t about causing a scene, it’s about saying yes to having a good time,” explains Eli Ingram. “But if that does cause a scene, then I’m more than happy for people to watch, and join in!”
