Elsy showing so much poise on this track. The themes are already laden with emotion but it's her delivery that makes your lip tremble and the goosebumps bubble.

A bit of a banger here! But it's not your straight forward dance track. It's got its own direction. Looking forward to new music from you in 2019.
