Elle Watson – Walls

Following up an impressive array of great singles, British singer/songwriter Elle Watson eventually announced the release of her highly anticipated debut EP, Phantom, which will be released in December via Wolf Tone​ (Glass Animals, Rosie Lowe). A first taste of the extended play can be also heard today and comes from a collaboration between Elle and hip-hop producer Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples). Walls is a track where Elle’s impressive singing and in-depth lyrics collide and find the perfect fit with the ethereal soundscape delivered by the American musician, made of elongated beats and floating twisting textures.

Speakin on the song’s inspiration, Elle Watson recalled the feeling of being trapped during her time in school: “One morning, I didn’t realise how close I was to the window, looking out into the bigger world, until I bumped my nose, and saw my breath all over it. I needed to get out of there.
