Berlin-based ELI has released his latest track “Ghosts” with an accompanying video and it is exactly what the doctor ordered. An upbeat track with relatable lyrics, this record will catapult you into a good mood. With a massive 70,000,000 collective streams for his track “Change Your Mind”, this 21-year-old singer, songwriter has already set the German pop music scene ablaze.
Speaking of the new track, ELI says “‘Ghosts’ is about that moment after a breakup when you feel incredibly lonely, yet, at the same time, you have a feeling that this person you parted ways with is still haunting you. Like a ghost by your side, that doesn’t let go”. This sentiment is reflected in the strikingly cool music video, as ELI wanders alone between the city and the beaches of Los Angeles. The special effects add another dimension to the video, as his shadow trails him across the sand, reflecting his ghost of relationships past.
Born into a showbiz family, ELI was always sure that he wanted to make music, it just took him time to find his niche. Having learnt everything from the drums to the violin, it wasn’t until he found the guitar that his passion truly emerged. This young popstar has been splitting his time between L.A. and Germany, writing new music and playing top festivals. Last year saw ELI play the mainstage at Lollapalooza, as well as selling out a 14-date tour across Germany.
With an exuberant sound that echoes Post Malone, ELI is certainly one to watch as his effortless voice feels like a tonic for current troubles.
