British pop star Ellie Moon has released her debut EP ‘MOONiSMS’, featuring four perfectly crafted, witty and unique pop songs. The EP includes the brand new lead track ‘Kylie Jenner’.
The world is bound to fall in love with her quirky melodies, razor sharp humour and every-day ‘kitchen-sink drama’ lyrics. She takes her cues from the likes of Jarvis Cocker, David Bowie and even Alan Partridge along the way.
Ellie’s sound is a glorious mix of big, bold brassy sounds, classic “beatles-esque” song structures, and what Ellie describes as “a weird 80s country edge, with country guitars and drums…It fits together really well and you feel satisfied afterwards.” This amazing accessible pop sound is enhanced by Ellie’s lyrics, holding together each song with a charm that’s impossible to resist. “When I first started writing for this EP, I was 18 and in the midst of teen dramas where the smallest of things seem so dramatic and get blown out of proportion,” she explains. “It develops from me having silly stories about my friends, to realising it’s a cool thing to write about – it’s my voice, it’s actually me!” Ellie realised early on that there was no point in writing about subjects she hasn’t experienced, eschewing the classic subjects of love and loss in favour of real stories.
‘MOONiSMS’ is a diverse and accomplished collection of singles with a box-fresh sound. Opening track and debut single ‘Indecisive’ is a hybrid country-infused pop-punk anthem with instant appeal. “I was cripplingly indecisive. I’ve been known to change outfits five times before I leave the house just to go to the supermarket…and I’m always late. The lyrics come from that, and also how I always say the opposite to what I actually mean.”
