Elle Watson - Walls

19-year-old London-based singer/songwriter Elle Watson has today announced details for her forthcoming debut EP, Phantom due out this December via Paul Epworth's label, Wolf Tone. The EP will also feature its title track as well as her previous single, "Losing Any Sleep". Ellie has also unveiled her enchanting new single entitled "Walls", which sees her collaborating with the hip-hop producer Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples).

"Walls" is a lush, escapist daydream full of longing that any small-town kid can relate to. Elle Watson recalls how her own experience of feeling trapped at school inspired the song: "One morning, I didn't realise how close I was to the window, looking out into the bigger world, until I bumped my nose, and saw my breath all over it. I needed to get out of there." When Elle Watson writes, she's drawn to subjects that are a little off-kilter. Maybe even a little dark. "I find a sense of imbalance so inspiring," Ellie says. "That can be in anything: contradictions that you have in yourself, or something that you feel isn't right in a situation. When I write, I just put my hands on the piano, and find a bit of dissonance that I find really pretty. Then I go from there."
