‘and the mountains would shake / I need to know I can still make / explosions’
Ellie is definitely far from indie anymore, but I can’t help in continuing to share her music… I simply like it so much. Today’s track is the second single off of her sophomore album, Halcyon, due out October 9th. It is a slow building, sweeping ballad with beautiful keys that highlights the Brit’s beautiful songbird chops (just listen to first few seconds of her ethereal church choir cooing).
I knew the world halcyon as an adjective: ‘denoting a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful; calm, tranquil.’ However, halcyon also refers to a mythical bird in Greek legends fabled to ‘have had the power to calm the wind and the waves while it nested on the sea during the winter solstice.‘ Sounds about right. #indie/tory
