Emulating warmth and soul, Brisbane based singer-songwriter, The Letter Elle makes a bold return with a self-produced track, ‘Sunrise’
Showcasing her skill for production, Elle Emery has created a new track ladened with smooth electric guitar riffs, crisp percussion elements, and raspy R&B and Jazz tinged vocals. ‘Sunrise’ is a retrospective and picturesque song inspired by living in the moment and finding solace. “Sunrise is, at first glance, a love song about enjoying just being in the moment and not putting pressure on what it ‘should be’ or where the future is going,” explains Elle.
“I think that subconsciously I wrote this song to myself about where I am currently at in my life. At the end of last year, I graduated uni and had an injury that prevented me from singing at all for months. It reminded me of my love for just doing things purely for the enjoyment. I hope that in this scary and uncertain time, this song can help people to remember they just need to take a step back and enjoy life for what it is. There’s no need for a big, complicated plan and we have to just take life day by day,” continues Elle.
The single arrives accompanied by a video clip shot along the beaches of Coolum in the Sunshine Coast where Elle is originally from. Filmed and edited by her and her partner, the music video gracefully compliments the song’s tone, whilst visually capturing the sun rising to match the song’s title. “I felt it really important to shoot this clip back in my home town. Coolum is where I became who I am and where I truly feel at home. I thought it only fitting to shoot this style of video somewhere that means so much to me,” adds Elle.
Musically inspired by artists such as Sahara Beck and Meg Mac, The Letter Elle has become a staple within Brisbane’s local live music scene. Showcasing her talent across a number of events including Brisbane’s indie festival Sesh & The City, whilst sharing stages with names such as Hazel Mei, Sahara Beck, Hemingway and Regurgitator. The Letter Elle is also a finalist in the Brisbane City Council’s 2020 QUBE Effect.
