In the run-up to the launch of her debut EP, Ella Rossi orchestrated her sophomore indie soul-pop single, Linen, around the constructs of the familiar bedfellows, desire and uncertainty.
The LA-born, Montreal-residing singer-songwriter’s vocal harmonies amplify the dreamily ethereal synthetics of the instrumentals, which use rich staccato chords to mimic an uneasy heartbeat as the vocal lines swathe the single with a caressive sense of vulnerable soul.
Spilling resonance for her audience who know just how it feels to be caught in the crossfires of affection and anxiety, Linen is set to be the pre-emptive heartbreak hit of the summer.
Linen, co-written with Rossi’s producer, Gamal, is released today on June 16th.
Ella Rossi said:
“Linen is about a passionate but complicated relationship and being unable to resist the attraction, despite the potential consequences. The lyric, “wrapped in this linen”, represents a sense of comfort and intimacy while alluding to a feeling of entrapment in a dynamic where there is no longer a clear view of how the other person feels.”
Amelia Vandergast, the Executive Editor at A&R Factory said:
“With a vocal range so luxe and rich it would make Elon Musk feel inferior, Ella Rossi is a diamond in the rough; it is only a matter of time before major record labels want to mine her. Her capacity to captivate with her honeyed harmonies and so-radiant-they-glow soundscapes is second to none. Rossi is the ultimate proof that if you stay in your own creative lane, there will be no one out of your expressive league.”
