Alt-pop prodigy ELUNIA has returned with the euphoric second single ‘Soak’. The singer-songwriter teamed up with multi-million streamed producer JMAC to co-produce this impactful track, creating a dynamic yet refined sound which features electronic influences. ELUNIA lends her celestial vocals to a dreamscape of backing harmonies, and delivers abstract lyricism as the icing on top.
Speaking of her new single, ELUNIA says: “‘Soak’ came about in the morning after a concert, just as the euphoria was fading. I had felt so alone for so long while struggling with anxiety and isolation caused by bullying and exclusion over the years, and I suddenly felt like someone had injected life into me. I had discovered this secret, special world of music that only I could know, only I could experience where I felt like I actually existed and mattered. It was a world that gave me highs without chemicals, while others felt like they needed substances and destructive habits to achieve that same feeling. I would desperately hold onto those moments and make them last as long as possible, and though that helped me cope, there was a part of me that knew I was idealizing the people I encountered and the experiences I had. I wrote ‘Soak’ as a way to preserve those moments trying to hold onto positive memories before they slipped away and reality flooded back in.”
ELUNIA debuted earlier this year with the powerful single ‘Borderlines’, and has since received notable support from music blogs, as well as garnering over 15,000 streams on Spotify in just a matter of weeks. A creative harbouring many talents, ELUNIA takes direction on her own visual content as well as her songwriting and producing. This year is set to be big for this emerging artist.
