ELOI is an artist of many talents: a singer, songwriter, producer and classically trained pianist. Her debut single ‘Frenemies’, released last month, was described by CLASH Magazine as an “Alt-Pop jammer” and showcased her unique blend of electronica, alternative, pop and RnB. This month, she is ready to reveal her second single ‘Vertigo’, and will be performing it live on BBC Radio London on October 10th.
‘Vertigo’ is an anthemic, synth-pop song. ELOI cleverly uses London’s landscape to tell a story of love tainted by fear and loneliness. The song refers to an inability to let go and feeling haunted by the ‘tall towers’ which remind her of the vast possibilities that life in London has to offer. The single will be featured on Roundhouse’s ‘Rising Sounds’ album and ELOI will be performing at the album launch/release on the 16th October. She will also be performing a full set with a live band at the Roundhouse on the 19th October.
Speaking to the motivation behind Vertigo, ELOI states ‘Vertigo’ is a metaphor exploring living in London and romantic relationships. I wrote the song when I was feeling really lost and disconnected from my life here. London is a great place to live your dream, but we’re surrounded by options, and still lonely. The tall towers symbolise what we could be or have if we let go. The alleyways are symbolic of what we are on a primitive level and what people settle for.
