ELLA ON THE RUN – SINGLE REVIEW

Ella On the Run – Walk Away 
Ella On The Run - Walk Away


Release Date: Out Now

Having abandoned her native Zurich for the bright lights of LA via Berklee College of Music, Ella On the Run’s name suddenly makes a lot more sense. New single ‘Walk Away’ seems to be continuing that theme in name, at least, but musically speaking Ella On The Run is akin to the likes of Ellie Goulding, Jess Glynne and Clean Bandit. This is sophisticated pop with expansive melodies and excellent use of beats that feel more like pulses than processed rhythms. Ella’s vocals are soft and caramel-like in their sweetness and, if listened to closely, can feel slightly uncomfortable such is the closeness of the production quality that you can almost hear each lick smack and shallow breath. There is a desperation to this song that you normally only experience in those supercharged early moments when an infatuation or base attraction turns in to something more tangible. Sensuous stuff, then.
