REVIEW album ELASKIA Better (Single)

You Can't Get Any Better Than This

Better (Single)


An artist I've been following for a while that continues to grow with each release, Elaskia is a shining force in Australia's ever-growing pop scene. 'Better' is transcending and makes me want to run to the nearest dancefloor to throw some serious shapes. Written about releasing your own worth, this feels like the song that could have influenced Miley Cyrus' latest song 'Flowers'. Elaskia clearly states that some people confuse self-worth with being selfish and this is the exact opposite of that. It's about knowing what you deserve and not being afraid to stand up for that. Initially inspired by lockdown and feeling stuck and wanting to be out the house, I really feel like no matter what situation you are in (even when it's extremely difficult) you should never feel like you have to settle for something that doesn't feel right to you or make you feel good enough. That's what this song tells me. It's about being okay on your own and having that self-validation and self-worth even when others don't give it to you.

Somewhere between the realms of dance and pop, "Better" is exhilarating and makes me feel alive and happy to be here. Produced by Rod McCormack and Elaskia herself, mixed by McCormack who has worked with Paul Kelly, Guy Sebastian and Kasey Chambers and mastered at Sterling Sound by Chris Gehringer (Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga, Rihanna), ‘Better’ comes across as enchanting and everything you’d expect from Australia’s finest talent.
