We all know the feeling. Being caught up in the kinetic buzz and heartbeat of a city. There is something intoxicating about the push and pull of new experiences, temptations and people, inextricable from a place close to your heart. And this is the exact experience explored in “London Eyes”, the pulsating new pop tune from classically-trained Latvian-born singer-songwriter ELIZZA.
Shoulder-shaking basslines, catchy hooks and fluttering synths inundate the song – showcasing ELIZZA’s innovative songwriting and impressively crafted melodies.
“The story is about my love and ‘sometimes’ hate relationship with London,” explains ELIZZA. “Since I moved here, I have been falling deeply in love with it but also find myself struggling to accept all that is London. “London Eyes” talks about how I feel the city is “keeping eyes” on me and not letting me go.
“In one way, I like this constant pull, but I also realise that there are so many times I find it tough. It can be expensive but also presents opportunities, it’s been a lot of years of working very hard to enjoy the best of this city. And then London has all the temptations you can imagine and more, you get addicted. At the end of the day, it’s home and I love it.”
