Fans of dark-pop will most likely be aware of acclaimed LA-based singer, songwriter and producer Ellise.

Written in the aftermath of a bad break-up, ‘Did It Hurt? tells of the raw and painful emotions that come with adjusting to single life again.

“‘Did It Hurt’ is a rare type of song for me. When you have a lot to say, it simultaneously makes the writing process messy and seamless. No amount of studio time or consistency can force raw emotion because when it’s there, it’s just there. The erratic switches between acoustic guitars and drum-heavy beat drops, along with the melancholic outro, is genuinely a sonic metaphor for the full spectrum of emotions a person can go through in such a short amount of time while dealing with losing someone they love.”

Well on her way to becoming a global star, Ellise has already garnered millions of career streams and received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Paper and Nylon magazines.
