Northern indie-pop artist Ellur writes self-detrimental love letters to herself in the form of danceable guitar anthems. Ellur’s music glows with youthful energy whilst she reflects on rejection, craving validation and independence.
The 21-year-old Halifax artist decided she would write about her relationship with herself and take inspiration from a range of her musical icons from HAIM to Cocteau Twins when she was recording her latest set of singles in Leeds’ Greenmount studio with Lee Smith (Holly Humberstone / Easy Life) and Rob Slater (Yard Act). Recent singles ‘Close To You’ and ‘Best Face On’ are both shining examples of Ellur’s ability to write deeply infectious, feel good indie-pop anthems.
Ellur released her empowering ‘Moments EP’ in 2021 via Dance To The Radio Records with singles championed by Spotify Editorials (NMF UK / EQUAL / Hot New Bands / Peach / Alternative Future etc.), DORK Magazine, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Radio X and synced on new Amazon series ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ and Channel 4’s ‘Made In Chelsea’.
This year Ellur and her live band have supported the likes of The Big Moon, Baby Queen, Abby Roberts, Deyaz, Saint Motel and a full UK tour with Embrace.
