Having spent the bulk of 2017 writing and crafting her own sound in the studio, LDN based singer/songwriter J Elle debuts her take on contemporary RnB with lead track and debut EP entitled ‘Phases’ which follows warm up track ‘I Lied’ which she dropped last week. The 5 track offering, penned solely by J Elle herself is the perfect introduction to the young artist’s take on the genre. Describing her sound she explains:
“RnB has always been my baby but I wanted to branch out and try other things too, because you don't grow inside your comfort zone!”
The EP is pinned around some bright, future leaning RnB/Alt Pop productions whilst there are other elements such as grime, pop and trap added to the mix. Production duties have been split between UK producers Drifta and Miguel London. J’s personal approach to lyrical content shines through as both sides of her personality are reflected.
“I've been that broken girl but I'm also that bad bitch too.”
Lead single ‘Phases’ acts as an anchor to the rest of the EP as we see a defiant and confident delivery throughout, mixing fictional stories with stark realities and relationship battles. Speaking of the track J Explains:
“I think it describes many modern day relationships. Sometimes I hate you, but that's okay, cos I'm always gonna love you!”
With 2018 promising to be a breakthrough year for the burgeoning songstress, she’ll be announcing several special collabs and tracks in the following months.
