Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter eli. has unveiled his new genre-bending single “make it”, out now.
An ode to a relationship that didn’t work out, “make it” is characterized by a fusion of acoustic and electronic elements over eli.’s irresistibly catchy melodies. With flowing guitar riffs and raw lyrics, the song perfectly captures the bittersweet feeling of reminiscing about an ex-lover. Written, produced, recorded, and mixed all from his bedroom, the West Virginia native showcases his versatility as he constantly experiments with various genres.
Speaking exclusively to AltPress about the track, eli. states, “It’s catchy, it’s bouncy, it has an energy I haven’t been able to capture in previous songs. It’s the same story about the same girl as all of my previous work but I’m ready to look at the situation with a more lighthearted and mature perspective. I’m nostalgic every time I listen.”
eli. (real name Eli Lucas) first made waves back in 2017 with his bluntly melancholic hit “i’m sad”, which has racked up over 50 million streams to date. Over the years, he’s continued to develop his own unique sound, exploring a range of styles from alternative R&B, pop, and rock with a true DIY approach. As he continues to forge his own path as an independent artist, the rising star’s latest release proves that he is one to watch in 2020.
eli.’s new single “make it” is now available worldwide on all streaming platforms.
