Elza has been making music across the globe. Born in Russia but raised in Israel, the singer-songwriter now lives in Vancouver — though for her latest album, Nothing’s Wrong, she travelled back to Israel to record with producer Ronen Roth.
Perhaps it is these migrations that have influenced the genre-fluid shifting that her music takes on. On “Swayed” — her latest single — the movement of Elza’s vocals is almost hypnotic, pulling to mind Dolores O’Riordan in the control and intensity. When the electronic sounds rise, there is a sense of the industrial, pushing the song outwards at the edges, creating a sense of a world.
“Swayed” is the third track on Nothing’s Wrong, which will be released independently on November 2nd. To hear more from Elza, you can find her on her website, SoundCloud, and Facebook page. You can also follow her on Twitter.
