“ella might be singing about grieving but it sounds like she’s turned on her heel, walked out of the room and wiped the issue off her shoulder on the way out.” 4 / 5 (Declan Byrne, Triple J)
“Confusion comes with a lot of energy attached to it. It’s made up of a variety of components that makes the whole thing stand out. Alt-pop productions like this one encapsulate the sense of innovation and originality that defines alt-pop today.” (Lefuturewave) [About ‘Confusion’]
“As an independent singer, Ella Therese has embarked on a path in a genuine way. Beyond question, her best asset is her singing voice but what is worth more than gold are her magnificent songwriting skills.” (ElectroWow) [About ‘Confusion’]
Calling out the emphasis on youth and the perpetuating ideal that there is a ‘limited time’ to achieve success, newsong ‘THIRTYFOUR’ (Out September 23) by WA artist EllaTherese serves as an unapologetic celebration of breaking down barriers to fulfil your dreams, and one that she hopes will encourage conversation about shared experiences.
Making her dazzling debut in 2020 with ‘Feelings’, Ella has already played WAMFest 2021, Fremantle Arts Centre alongside Banjo Lucia,and had Siobhan Cotchin and Indoor Fins play her last single launch.
Following the 2021 release of her intoxicating second single ‘Confusion’, comes new alt-rock track ‘THIRTYFOUR’. In an empowering move to maintain ownership and artistry, Ella will also be releasing the song as an NFT.
This is a soulful and arresting mantra that gets straight to the core of its message with plenty of heart and a catchy hook. ‘THIRTYFOUR’ sees Ella embracing her power, and demonstrating that we can resist and liberate ourselves from the shackles of expectation by calling out the bullsh*t, and doing what we want with confidence. The song also universally speaks to demanding more, maintaining high standards, and chasing your ambitions – regardless of the limitations society may try to place on us. Driven by a strong beat and an understated soft alt-rock sound, Ella’s voice and the message it delivers are given full reign to be heard loud and clear – as they deserve to be.
Written in response to the initial feeling of being ‘too old’ to start her music career, particularly as a female artist, ‘THIRTYFOUR’ is poised to spark conversations with its audience.
Set for release during the month of her 34th birthday, Ella elaborates on the track:
“It’s never too late. Never too late to do exactly what sets your soul on fire. Age doesn’t dictate what happens next. I’ve just turned thirty-four years old and I used to be worried about starting music later in life, but I’ve learnt to embrace my unique perspective on the world. ‘THIRTYFOUR’ is about feeling empowered, limitless and perfectly happy with your age, and embracing the distinct qualities you have to offer the world. I expect more from the world, more from myself, and I’m celebrating that quality in ‘THIRTYFOUR’. I’m not going to settle for anything less than absolutely everything I could possibly aim for.“
This insightful, unstoppable drive coupled with her knack for creating engaging indie/ alt-pop music is garnering plenty of attention, with Ella Therese already receiving support from the likes of The Music, Triple J, Scenestr, Lefuturewave, ElectroWow, The Sunday Times, and more.
‘THIRTYFOUR’ by Ella Therese kicks off on September 23, and she’s only just getting started, with her next single due out in 2023.
