Words: Saam Das
Back in 2011, we wrote about a 17 year old female singer-songwriter, comparing her favourably to one Laura Marling. Five years on, and Ellie Makes Music has established her own platform, and her forthcoming single 'It's For The Best' is perhaps her finest anthem yet.
Ellie's made some decent waves since those teenage days, most notably having her track 'Company' soundtrack the Peacock's Christmas ad back in 2014. 'It's For The Best' might not be on any adverts just yet, but it does see Ellie sounding bigger than ever. There's a bittersweet lyrical underlayer to the track but ultimately, 'It's For The Best' feels like an invigorating, life-affirming, handclap-inducing number.
'It's For The Best' is scheduled for release on 16th April. Find more info at facebook.com/elliemakesmusic.
