Following on from September's Free, Leeds-based wunderkind Ellur returns with her stunningingly rich new single The Woman. Showcasing a new side to her pop prowess, the track's soft nuances and empowering lyrics once more solidify her songwriting and diverse talents as it reaches its slow burning crescendo. Speaking about her final release of the year, Ellur revealed: “Despite being the result of a distressing time for me, I see ‘The Woman’ as a celebration of togetherness, womanhood and support that can get us through difficult times (reflected in her accompanying music video-directed by Ella and Andy Little). It’s a song that is very close to my heart. I wrote it after processing a traumatic experience in my late teens that had made me feel frighteningly vulnerable. I then felt claustrophobic and overwhelmed by the fact I couldn’t do anything to ‘fix it’.I wrote ‘The Woman’ with no intention of showing it to anyone or releasing it. I wrote it just for me. But after slipping it into a few acoustic performances early this year, I received really inspiring feedback from people in the audience. Women were approaching me to tell me they liked the song with this knowing look and I felt an immediate connection to them. It actually felt pretty devastating that we had these experiences in common.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
