Soundcloud surfers likely discovered  Ella Vos when her silky vocals laced “Rolling Dice” by Australian DJ/producer Just a Gent, helping lift this minor-key, SBTRKT-y slab of saudade to more than 430,000 spins. Now she’s on track to garner as many with her first solo song, “White Noise,” a seductive, gauzy, downtempo offering with enough pop polish to land it on a big soundtrack.

She Says: You could be forgiven for assuming that “White Noise” and its oblique, wistful imagery, makes for another love song – and you’d only be half right. Instead, Vos used her first public offering to tackle a topic which often sends many music-industry folks running: new motherhood.

“I didn’t even mean it to be about that situation. I just realized as I was writing those words I was just so depressed and in a weird fog. Nothing was real around me. It was super intense,” she says. “But I’m really glad I pushed myself to do it. I’m realizing more and more how much it really matters to put out honest music, and I feel so much better standing behind it, like, ‘Yes, this is what I wrote, and this is what it’s about, and take it or leave it.'”

“White Noise” is full of subtle pleasures, like its rolling snare solos and mournful, crescendoing organ passage.
