LA-based artist and producer Ellise caps 2022 with alt-pop gem “Did It Hurt?”
LA-based artist and producer Ellise makes her DNü debut with her stunning new single “Did It Hurt?”. Written on the heels of a messy breakup that was extremely difficult to navigate, the alt-pop gem offers dark tones, a captivating production and an infectious vocal melody that instantly draws you in.
“‘Did It Hurt’ is a rare type of song for me. When you have a lot to say, it simultaneously makes the writing process messy and seamless. No amount of studio time or consistency can force raw emotion because when it’s there, it’s just there. The erratic switches between acoustic guitars and drum-heavy beat drops, along with the melancholic outro, is genuinely a sonic metaphor for the full spectrum of emotions a person can go through in such a short amount of time while dealing with losing someone they love.” — Ellise.
Although it’s her first feature on here, Ellise has already amassed millions of streams thanks to her loyal global fan base, and also garnered attention from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Paper and Nylon Magazine.
