Alice Ella releases her new single “Somewhere Else”.
Known for her soulful voice and ambient production, Alice Ella has come back once again with a catchy hook amidst beautiful dark tones. “When I was writing ‘Somewhere Else’, I wanted to get across the feeling of being so immersed within the intimacy of a relationship that I would forget everything else going on in my life, even if just for a moment. I was able to escape my own body and feel like nothing else mattered. The song is about my personal journey of recovery from chronic ill health, when I longed to escape the prison my own body had become. I hope that it will connect with people going through dark times and this song is for anyone who wants to escape from themselves, escape from everyday life and feel freedom”.
The single, produced by Scott Stoddart (one half of the well known production duo ‘Dasco’) features two remixes – a ‘future house’ mix by Jeff Nang and an ‘alternative mix’ by Uncon. The video encapsulates the raw emotion of the song and fragility of the lyrics. Live video footage is projected onto Alice’s body, cutting to vintage shots that represent escapism and freedom. Intimate moments to camera, contrasted by dynamic projections, create tension alongside Alice’s captivating and powerful performance.
Alice Ella’s debut single “Summer Sun” was successfully crowdfunded by a kickstarter campaign and used for a Roland / Boss vocal pedal advert.
