L.A-based alt-pop newcomer Ellise has released her new single Feeling Something Bad.
Over the last year, a consistent run of releases has put Ellise forward as one of pop music's cult-adored, platforming herself through social media and its stan culture to develop an audience which thrives over every release and every tweet, backing it up with hyper dark-pop that's as eccentric as it is nostalgic.
Ellise is building an unstoppable brand filled with bubblegum pop palettes and a sound that is distinctively hers.
“I just love dramatising little everyday feelings in life, so this is my big dramatic ‘I have a crush on you’ song,” says Ellise, noting that she wrote Feeling Something Bad about a boy she barely knew.
“The day I made it, I felt like I had a breakthrough with how I make music. It was so different from anything I had made before, and it really pushed me to keep challenging myself throughout the making of the rest of my album.”
The track is the second cut from Ellise’s upcoming debut album, out later this spring, and follows Bubblegum Brain with its video starring drag superstar Shea Couleé, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season five.
Bay Area-born Ellise is attracted to pop music's ability to access the dark sides of the human experience.
Her catalogue includes two Halloween EPs: 2018's Can You Keep a Secret? and 2019’s Under My Bed.
911 from her debut EP attracted significant attention upon release, and Ellise has only continued to build her following since then, with over 100 million total streams across platforms to date.
