London based synth pop singer/songwriter Elena adds to her already expansive back catalogue with her new single, “Bonnie and Clyde”, her second of 2021 so far, the follow up to “Build A Ship”.
The song is a smooth, classy synth pop number with a wicked beat and Elena’s child-like vocals as she charts the real life tale of a devoted lover covering her tracks to the classic story of Bonnie and Clyde.
A confession that “I’ve always liked people like us in the movies” sets the tone for a free-feeling chorus, which compares Elena’s story to those legendary fugitives. Elena says “The song started as a metaphor for getting rid of old version of ourselves, creating new identities and finding partners who would support those changes and evolve with us”.
Elena wrote the song in 2019 in her apartment in New York City. A whimsical background of growing up home-schooled on a cattle farm in Canada, attending Berklee College of Music, and hustling in New York City while writing her first EP, has led Elena to settle in London. Elena (Goddard) made her first musical steps in 2018 with the double A sider “2morrow” and “Rivers Flow” before releasing a number of tracks in the build up to her debut album, “West”, released last year.
