Suffolk native Eloïse is capturing attention with her sultry vocals and complex narrative songwriting skills. On her debut single, “Studio 54”, haunting lyrics mix perfectly with heavy percussion and an electronic line that weaves in and out, creating a perfect suspense. “It’s been midnight for longer than it should,” she repeats as vocal layers are added for an ominous effect. Just try to keep it out of your head.
At eighteen, she is already drawing comparisons to artists like Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey. The maturity of her lyrics — full of thought-out cynicism and strong images — feels stunning, and yet inevitable given the mood of the track. This is an artist with worlds of potential, and we just have to watch her.
