ELIS NOA have shared their latest album I Was Just About To Leave,and it’s guaranteed to make you take a second look and assess whether you are truly happy with the people that surround your daily life. Released via Las Vegas Records, the album shares eleven emotionally evocative tracks.
‘Weights’ is a production-rich track that features a delectable blend of percussion instruments and electronic elements. Emotionally bare like ‘Mad About You’, the track is a refreshingly honest message about factors that canweigh you down in every relationship.
‘Make Me Think You’ incorporates somber and rich downtempo elements with a sultry R&B tone and vocals that are addictive from the start. A song about reminiscing about love that was and is no more, it is a heartwrenching track about heartbreak but sweet-sounding nonetheless.
‘I Don’t Like It Here’ is a song that reflects on playing pretend with people and concealing your true feelings. This track took us by surprise the most with its composed and attitude fuelled vocal delivery and tempo.
An honest track with a whole lot of glowing attitude, ELIS NOA’s latest song ‘Mad About You’ gives one chills with its engaging and delightfully confrontational lyrics. Frustrated with the toxic traits one can find in certain relationships, singer and songwriter Elisa, wanted to shine a light on these emotionally suffocating thoughts and feelings one can experience as a result.
Elisa shares more thoughts on this poignant and important song: “As we wandered through the very different stages of letting go, ‘Mad About You’ is a moment of anger and disappointment. I felt misunderstood, left out and pushed away. It is also a crucial song and turning point inside the album. While writing, I understood that all anger and disappointment really were an expression of myself, responding to inner insecurities and expectations. I realized that my feelings belonged to me and were my responsibility. How somebody makes you feel has a lot to do with yourself and very little with the other.“
Taking a more bold approach from its predecessor lyrically and production-wise, we get a multifaceted view of what we can expect with ELIS NOA’s forthcoming album I Was Just About To Leave. The LP is set for official release on the 27th of May via Las Vegas Records. We got our first taste of the album with the R&B track ‘Weights’ which took a more ethereal route in terms of its production stylings, however, we are not mad with the production on this spirited track.
