Video: Elly D - Rise

Elly D Rise

Elly D - Rise

Info: Elly D is an established singer-songwriter hailing from West Dublin, Ireland. With a unique voice that has been likened to "Blondie's Debbie Harry meets Irish Songstress Gemma Hayes", the singer's wide vocal range and hooky melodies along with her uncompromising stage presence have made her stand out from the musical crowd. Her love of many musical genres, from the early rock 'n' roll sounds of Elvis to the deadpan lyrics of Courtney Barnett, have allowed her to create an infectious sound that to date has left many unable to ignore.

After years of recording demos in her home studio and touring Ireland and parts of Europe as the lead singer of the band Riot Tapes, Elly D finally decided to undertake a solo venture and released her first highly anticipated EP "Rise" earlier this year. 

The self-titled single, 'Rise', is the third to be released from the EP, following 'If It's Cool' and 'Say'. In our review of 'Rise' during the summer we wrote; 'Final track 'Rise' is the third string to Elly D's pop bow. Incorporating indie-rock, electronic pop and dance ably, it encapsulates her sound best for me, Goldfrapp, Florence and Bat for Lashes all drop by here, both vocally and musically. You sense that there is a lot of creativity and further experimentation waiting to show itself on future releases...'. Fingers crossed Elly D will treat us to a second EP in 2017, in the meantime, you can catch her live in The Vintage Room at The Workman's Club, this Friday, 25th November.
