Ellis, the pseudonym of Canadian songwriter, Linnea Siggelkow. Up until now, Ellis’ reputation has been based entirely on a series of live dates with the likes of Soccer Mommy and Pale Hound, however this week we’ve finally got some recorded material to go on, in the shape of debut single, The Drain.

The Drain about which Ellis sings is more emotional than plug-hole related as Linnea explains, “it’s about self-sabotaging a relationship because you’re afraid of how deep it’s getting, but then saying ‘fuck it’ and diving in anyway.” That euphoric feeling of throwing yourself in at the deep end is equally present in the music, as driving rhythms are cut through with gorgeous twinkling synths and Linnea’s, easy, almost detached vocals. With an EP coming later in the year, Ellis’ potential is clear to see, and where she goes next could be fascinating.

The Drain is out now
