High flying alternative frontrunner Eloise entices us with “Therapist”, a further glimpse into her upcoming album Drunk On A Flight.
With bags of candid charm and concise craft, Eloise is a genre-merging talent who just keeps getting better. Her debut EP, 2019’s This Thing Called Living, was a highly successful and refined project, achieving soaring streaming figures and leaving Eloise poised for huge success and musical progression. This year has seen the artist augment her style to newfound heights, with the announcement of a forthcoming body of work, Drunk On A Flight, and two previous teaser songs, the dazzling, poignant jazz-laden title track and the subtle and saccharinely sombre “Giant Feelings”.
We have now been treated to a third single from the album, “Therapist”, a track brimming with cheeky sentiment and luscious sonics. It’s an intelligently written number that sees Eloise address the subject, her ex, with brutal honesty, as she critiques his childish antics, unleashing stinging lines like “You’re acting like a boy but I fell for a man”. These themes are what drives much of the album, with relatable tales of falling in and out of love, the difficulties that come with relationships, and standing up to the chaos of life, set to ensue on the anticipated album.
Talking on the thought behind the cut, and the wider album, Eloise comments, “Ending a long-term relationship at 23, you feel such a loss of time and adolescence and that can make you so frustrated. What have I learned from all of this? And what am I stuck with at the end of all of this? My songwriting has always been honest, but this feels raw – like I’m exploring all the shades of emotion”.
The record has hotly tipped producer Conor Albert on the buttons, and we can’t wait to be further welcomed into Eloise’s immersive writing and glorious sound on the new album.
