Rising artist Ellysse Mason has revealed her latest pop gem in the form of new single ‘Where Were You’, delivering intoxicating melodies and dreamy vocals. Infusing her irresistible alt-pop style with glossy 1975-esque production and 80s nostalgia, Ellysse delivers straight-talking lyrics as she asks her lover: “do you want someone new?”. This is no-nonsense pop: Ellysse’s meaningful songwriting portrays the boldness of an artist well beyond her years.
She reveals: “I wanted to explore the clash of contrasting emotions as a relationship comes to its end. ‘Where Were You’ is the straight talking voice needed to interrupt the silence of a complete communication breakdown. It’s both sides of the story, if either side were brave enough.”
Ellysse Mason has racked up over 320k monthly Spotify listeners and over 4 million accumulative streams. Her growing popularity has seen her also gain support from BBC Radio 1 and Radio 6, as well as being championed by BBC Introducing. With sold out home town shows at such venues as Manchester’s Deaf Institute and Academy 3, and an impressive list of dates coming up, Ellysse is en route towards something great.
