4.00

Almost three years in the making, Elaine's new EP 'The Colour of the Night' is a cathartic piece of work which centres around the common human experiences of grief and hope.

 

Since the release of her last EP in 2014, Elaine has been expanding upon her previous critically acclaimed live performances, experimenting with her live show as well as her approach to song-writing and production. Over the past two years, she has released several new remixes which showcase her skill as a producer. Following it's release in March, her remix of Liza Flume’s track ‘Sheets’ was recently added to RTÉ 2FM rising. Her highly anticipated EP ‘The Colour of the Night’ is available to stream now.

 

Elaine says: 'This EP is a snapshot of the last few years for me and each song reflects a different aspect of how I was feeling during this time. Enniscrone is dedicated to my cousin, who passed away in 2014 and it's a celebration of all the amazing times we had as kids in the Sligo seaside town it's named after. The Colour of the Night is about grief in it's many forms and the melody and movement in the strings are a musical representation of the journey from sorrow and despair to acceptance and hope.

 

When I Go was written after the first two tracks and it's about recognising when you're not okay and having the strength to admit that to yourself. Working with Temper-Mental MissElayneous on Praise in the Cliché was perfectly timed and it was so refreshing to focus on it. Her energy, flow and lyricism are incredible and I think this track fits really well on the EP. The final track, Separation rounds the release off – it was a lot of fun to write and I really enjoy playing it live. Writing and working on this EP was such an outlet for me during this time in my life and the whole process ended with me writing this song. It concludes the journey of writing this EP for me and I think it's the perfect closing track’.
