Ella on The Run - Walk Away

Having recently been crowned the new queen on the alt-pop block, Zurich-born, London-based singer/songwriter Stephanie Gautier, aka Ella On The Run has just unveiled the music video for her new single, "Walk Away", which she co-directed herself along with Rafe Emile (who also directed Will Joseph Cook's "Take Me Dancing" video).

While a lyrical sparse track, "Walk Away" finds Ella proclaiming her brushes with forbidden love and temptation - "Could we be lovers, more than friends? There’s no future so why pretend." Soft, lilting vocals bounce amongst the fervent synth that peppers the mix. It’s a tactic that captures her strength: the Swiss singer knows what she's good at, allowing her songs to go straight for the jugular.

Speaking on the track, Ella says:

"It is a song about forbidden attractions, the ones that you know won't end well even before they've properly started. A secret lover, a crush or maybe other circumstances like distance or a friend's ex that just make a potential relationship impossible."

Watch the video for "Walk Away" below.

"Walk Away" is taken from her Ella on The Run's recently released Undone EP, which is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via The 405.
