Having spent the bulk of 2017 writing and crafting her own sound in the studio, LDN based singer/songwriter J Elle is set to debut her take on contemporary RnB with lead track and debut EP entitled ‘Phases’. Ahead of this release she drops warm up track ‘I Lied’ which acts as a taste of what’s to come from the EP. Produced by Miguel LDN, and ticking plenty of boxes, the track boasts a catchy chorus hook, some sweet and sour lyrics and a searing vocal performance. The young Londoner is riffing on relationship issues here as she explains the meaning behind the track:
“I Lied is about that crazy kind of girlfriend, where they say one thing but mean another and expect their partner to KNOW that. You say you want them to go out with their friends, but really you’re jealous!”
The 5 track offering, penned solely by J Elle herself is the perfect introduction to the young artist’s take on the genre. The EP is pinned around some bright, future leaning RnB/Alt Pop productions whilst there are other elements such as grime, pop and trap added to the mix. Production duties have been split between UK producers Drifta and Miguel London. J’s personal approach to lyrical content shines through as both sides of her personality are reflected.
With 2018 promising to be a breakthrough year for the burgeoning songstress, she’ll be announcing several special collabs and tracks in the following months.
