EllaHarp brings the traditional into the present. This isn’t because she wields a harp as her main instrumental muse, but rather because she explores the confusing space of the present moment in music with apt emotion and poetry.
“Screaming into the Void” was born out of a moment of frustration for the digital age and how music is released. In a time of extensive music saturation, how does one stand out?
Well, EllaHarp need not worry on this account. Using her harp to create music that carries the resonance of the instrument, but none of the familiar tropes, she puts her weight on the weaving melodies pulled together by her dreamy-soft voice. “Silence is louder than noise,” she sings, and this sinks in as the gentle song floats through the room.
Every sound that you hear on “Screaming Into the Void” was created by EllaHarp herself — who also produced the album that will be coming out later this year. Screaming Into the Void will mark the San Francisco artist’s second release following 2018’s Who Asked You Back.
