Born and raised in Sevenoaks, Kent — which she describes as “the definition of a small town” — Elle Watson had a busy year as she already released two singles which received strong support from the blogosphere. Following up the previously released singles “Phantom” and “Losing Any Sleep”, she just unveiled a new single off her upcoming EP. “Walls” is produced by hip-hop beat creator Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples) who, by the way, demonstrates here his versatility.
To go with this announcement, she also detailed the release of her debut EP. “Phantom” will be released via Paul Epworth‘s label Wolf Tone (the current house of Glass Animals and Rosie Lowe) on December 2. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter will also play in London at Servant Jazz Quarters, on December 5 (get your tickets there).
“Walls” is obviously about escaping, being different, and living your own life. It’s a feeling that is probably common to a lot of youngsters raised in the countryside. Every young bird has to fly on its own.
