Ela Ira – ‘Nothing To It’
Hailing from Berlin, musician Ela Ira has released the excellent single ‘Nothing To It’, today, 18th September 2020. It is an indie-pop single that is a must-hear this Autumn.
Textured and inviting synths open the release. They instantly fill the single with intrigue. Ira’s atmospheric and charming vocals enter, and the single is in full flow.
We love the main melody in the chorus; it is infectious and stays with the listener after the music has ended. The layered instrumentation creates superb texture within the piece and adds tremendous colour. Ela Ira is an excellent musician who is making intriguing and exciting music.
Ira says about the release, “(‘Nothing To It’) is about the excitement and vulnerability of developing feelings for somebody, the fact that this emotion is out of your control, and that there is simply “nothing to it” beyond accepting what you feel.”
She continues, “The experience of composing and writing alone (while also living alone, post-breakup, during Corona) brought forth a myriad of emotional themes from female power, independence, and prowess, to isolation, vulnerability, and loss.”
Ela Ira is previously of the band White Night. They were nominated for the German Songwriting Award in 2018 and they won the US Songwriting Award in 2019. ‘Nothing To It’ is her first solo project, and it is an inspiring single.
We are thrilled to see that Ira has a full album, due for release on 18th November 2020. Definitely a date for the diary!
So make sure you add ‘Nothing To It’ to your weekday playlist. We are so pleased to have discovered Ela Ira, and we feel she is an artist to watch in the 2020s. ‘Nothing To It’ is available to enjoy from the link below!
