The warmer days have welcomed a different sense of electronic tracks that seem to fit summer nights better. Australian artist Vanessa Elisha continues this transformational trend with her latest dark wave of RnB electronic. Teaming up Los Angeles producer XXYYXX, the two have melted their strengths in a chilled, yet darker state of mind with “Dark & Lonely.” Bouncing from the inside of Elisha’s mind and brought to life with the clean production skills of XXYYXX, “Dark & Lonely” reassures a listener they are not alone while effortlessly gliding into a soundscape of ambient, electric soul.
“The song itself can mean a bunch of different things to different people. For me, it’s about being comfortable as an introverted loner, and the judgement that comes from that. It’s about changing moods, changing tides, pushing people away, bringing them back in, being happy in loneliness, being sad in loneliness – the ramblings of a girl trying to figure her shit out really,” she said.
