Approved: Elisabeth Elektra

Elisabeth Elektra has returned with new single ‘Broken Promises’, ahead of her new EP of the same name next month. Produced by Jonny Scott of Chvrches, the track also features guitars from Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite.

Following a shift in sound first heard on ‘The Dream’, which was released earlier this year, Elektra’s new material is heavier than her 2020 debut album ‘Mercurial’, but maintains its strong pop sensibility.

“I wrote this song while I was going through a particularly difficult time in my life”, she says of the new single. “Everything felt so unstable and disorienting, but I realised even at the time that I was being forged by trauma into a stronger, more resilient and powerful person”.

“Music has always been a way for me to channel more difficult emotions such as rage into something productive”, she adds. “The song is about the realisation that all the things we worry about really don’t matter, only love matters. Everything else fades away”.

The ‘Broken Promises’ EP is set for release on 16 Nov.
