Soulful duo ELLIS NOA first appeared on our radar with their elegant single, ‘Weights’. At the time, we sat down for an exclusive interview with the pair in which we discussed the evolution of their sound and got an idea of what to expect from them in the upcoming months. Flash forward to today and we’re greeted with the conceptual music video for their latest single, ‘Mad About You’, the final piece of the puzzle to be revealed ahead of their sophomore LP which will be released tomorrow via Las Vegas Records.
Pre-save: I Was Just About To Leave LP
The duo tell us about the upcoming LP: “I Was Just About To Leave is a concept album. We wanted to describe the process of letting go and the journey that comes with that. Each song of the album musically explores every step of that process, from moments of resistance all the way to acceptance. Letting go of a person, a job, a friendship, an idea or a fantasy, doesn’t happen in a singular moment. It usually takes time, there is a lot of back and forth that happens before you decide to move and maybe open up for something new. “I Was Just About To Leave“ is a sentence many of us use to calm ourselves, even though we know it’s still a long road ahead.”
The video for ‘Mad About You’ is a dramatic glimpse into the moments in a relationship that can lead to anger and disappointment. The video manages to portray the lack of villains in this scenario while still highlighting the inevitable hurt both parties might experience, all while folding in ethereal vocals and unforgettable production. We’ll definitely be joining the fans counting down to the release of the album to discover more of ELIS NOA’s unique sound.
