Emerging Artist ELA Delivers A Debut Single With Yearnful 'Our Summer' Vibes

Our Summer (Single)


Emerging talent ELA (pronounced ‘Ella’) launches her debut single, ‘Our Summer’. The simple appeal of her accompanying video, showing a laid back beach holiday, open top jeep and loved-up couple vibes is not only the kind of wistful holiday vibes we are so desperately missing in lockdown right now - but like a series of Love Island distilled into under 5 minutes – and who doesn’t want that?!

This track should by rights be blasting in The Villa – the perfect soundtrack to wafts of golden fake tan and teeny-weeny bikinis under glorious hot sunshine. The sound of ‘Our Summer’ has a surprisingly international vibe for a girl originating from a small village in West Wales, but ELA has varied influences and undeniable talent, having previously won a coveted music scholarship and currently working on her forthcoming EP, entitled ‘Unfurl’ - it should be exciting to see where her talents take her, including collaborations with Ian Barter, who has worked with musical heroes like Amy Winehouse and Paloma Faith. Her own inspirational is taken from strong female artists like Jorja Smith, Mahalia and Dua Lipa.

Having previously written for TV and soundtracks, it will be empowering for ELA to step out on her own. Playing this, I think maybe Summer 2020 is starting to look up after all! ‘Our Summer’ is the sound of a young artist embracing a bright future.
