Bio

or something that claims to look both toward the future and back to the past, it seems only fitting for it to be rife with contradiction. Ella Thompson’s debut record Janus, which takes its name from the Roman god, is an assertive foray into the rocky road of maturation.

Thompson translates this perfectly into song, with her lyrical inflections shifting between uncertain mutters, husky ruminations and empowered bellows. Her electro-melancholy piles in as much optimism as it can muster without forgetting a necessary dose of reality.

While Thompson and Janus present us with a road traveling both ways, it seems that she is only destined to move forward. Her first single Arcade with neon drenched VHS film clip produced by visual artist Jason Galea.

I do not wish to disclose the amount of days I have had this on repeat for, but just know that it has been quite the marathon. Definitely one of my favourite tracks so far this year.

Ella's quickly become - to me, at least - one of the most indispensable vocalists and musicians in the country what with her never-ending output across multiple projects. It'd get dizzying keeping up with all of it if the songs weren't as high quality as they are.

Love the voice, love the beat. Synth interludes are great too.
