Ella Eyre

Brixton Electric, 12th June 2014

***

Tearing up Brixton Electric on Thursday 12th June was the exceptionally talented Ella Eyre! A name you may have come across following her feature with Rudimental back in 2013 and scoring herself a UK number one with Waiting All Night, Ella is now gearing up for her solo career. Previously billed as a support act for Rudimental and Naughty Boy, Ella’s only other headline show has been London’s XOYO in March 2014.

 

Having had the pleasure of seeing her perform numerous times, you would think the element of surprise would have gone by now right?  But the fact I still got those pre-gig jitterbugs, I’m telling you now this girl is liquid gold. 2014 has already seen flourishing new artists such as Jesse Glynne, Kiesza come into the limelight but nothing compares to the vocal range and showmanship Ella proves she got at just 20 years old.  Ella performed a highly energized 1 hour set which contained nothing less than 110% energy, 110% vocals and 110% volume for her signature curly mane!

Keen to give fans a taster of songs that will feature of her yet to be named album, she explained her 2nd track Time is about long distance relationships. Her staple rendition of Basement Jaxx’s Good Luck was well received, before explaining that she would sing one of her personal favourites called Home, dedicating it to her mum who was somewhere amongst the crowd.

 

Cute as a button but fierce like Queen Bey, it’s brand new song Come Back which she dedicated to her cheating ex-boyfriend  that was the highlight of the night. Although she is young, featuring lyrics “We’ve all been played, We all get hurt, so take that pain and let the motherf**ker burn” when it comes to boys, she’s far from naïve. We certain hope this is the next single!

Predicable but by no means any less worthy, Ella ends with her debut single ‘If I Go’ which is due for release on July 6th.

Week commencing 30th May 2014

Single of the Week: OUT NOW

 Ed_Sheeran_Sing Our very own UK ginger gentlemen Ed Sheeran is back with his brand new track Sing.

Moving away from the mundane ‘one man and his guitar’ which dominated the charts in 2010, Sheeran has raised the bar with a Justin Timberlake infused vibe which is similar to his solo debut Like I Love You. This up-tempo song is guaranteed to have you singing along with Sheeran’s command “SING!! Ooooh oooh oooh oh oh oh oh LOUDER!!

Man of the moment Pharrell behind the production and Sheeran’s sketchy vocals at the full front of another love ballad, this single is like fine wine that matures with every listen!

Album of the Week: OUT NOW

Kyla-La-Grange-Cut-Your-Teeth-2014-Final-1500x1500Kyla La Grange’s razor sharp single Cut Your Teeth has been on repeat, but now it’s time to hit the skip button whilst we check out the 9 brand new tracks from her 2nd album.

From the twinkly touches of Xylophones to delicate vocals, un-missable lilac locks and her dainty frame – Kyla could easily pass for a real life Tinkerbell! Imagine sitting next to a wishing well immersed in the soft sugary melodies of I Don’t Hate You and White Doves. Adding contrastKyla reveals her dark side with The Knife and Cannibals. While this album is worlds apart from her debut release Ashes in 2012, she seems to have pulled it off.

Watch this space; surely it’s only a matter of time before Kyla sprinkles so more fairy dust.

 

Video of the Week:OUT NOW

 

If Ella Eyre’s latest video is anything to go by, I don’t think we are the only ones that’s been climbing the walls waiting for her to release her solo material!   If I Go acts as her debut single following her recent success with Rudimental and her own EP Deeper.

Big voice, Big hair and well on her way to becoming a BIG solo success Ella Eyre is a name you simply won’t be sleeping on.

XOYO London, 12th MAR 2014

***

Big hair, big voice and hotly tipped to be the big success of 2014, Ella Eyre performed her first ever headline show at London’s underground club XOYO.

Previously featured on electronic music quartet Rudimental’s smash hit Waiting All Night, Ella has generated a hype nearly as big as her hair! High energy, fierce dance moves and enough hair whipping that even Willow Smith couldn’t pull off, Ella Eyre bounced around the stage, giving a performance that really was worthy of arena status. Dressed in an Egyptian bodysuit and custom made ear-rings with her lioness logo, Ella looked every inch the star.

Don’t Follow Me was the opener track followed by Typical Me before she launched in her debut single Deeper. Giving fans an insight into the more personal side of Ella’s life, she gave a solid and heartfelt performance of her new track Home. Later, thanking Rudimental for putting her name out there, she gave a vigorous performance of Waiting All Night which was a definite crowd pleaser.

With only a few songs released and her debut album tucked away for release in just a few months time, Ella performed a cover of her childhood favourite Basement Jaxx’s Good Luck which she has previously sang on Studio Brussel.

At just 19 the future for Ella Eyre is bright and with heaps of festivals in the pipeline, this is a name you should not be sleeping on! Despite the success of Ella’s set, I couldn’t help but feel disappointed by the venue and the chosen support acts. Disgraceful organising on club XOYO’s behalf left fans not only agitated that doors opened one hour later than advertised, but there was also no staff inside to guide the crowd through to the stage area. They say bad things come in sets of three and this was proven to be true shortly after the first support act, Jake Isaac, took to the stage. Thankfully, despite the lighting failing two songs into his set, Isaac seemed unfazed and continued his set in darkness, later joking about the romance of the setting! Full of charm and acting like a true professional the technical issues didn’t stop this set from being well received.

Jave-On was next to continue the bad-streak, performing songs from his debut album Mercy. Unfortunately his songs sounded invariably the same – mass produced club beats and weak monotone vocals that dragged on somewhat. Switching the support acts around would have made for a better lead up to Ella’s phenomenal 40 minute set.
