If you've been around this blog for more than a minute, you will probably know that I'm a huge fan of ELIS NOA.
From the first track I listened, back in December 2021, I just couldn't stop listening to their music...
I had the opportunity to do an interview with them, you can read it here ELIS NOA, are just a step before releasing their new album "I Was Just About to Leave", and "Mad About You" is their last single.
"Mad About You" is an emotionally intense track, exploring the stage in a relationship that you're letting go because you feel angry, disappointed and misunderstood. The backing vocals create a haunting atmosphere, and the harsh percussion parts are like sharp knives cutting through the emotional stages to realisation.
The music video portrays the insecurities, the self doubt, the betrayal and the pain one feels when pushed away. It's done in such a simple, but meaningful, way using arrows to create a visual metaphor.
"While writing, [...] I realised that my feelings belonged to me and were my responsibility. How somebody makes you feel has a lot to do with yourself and very little with the other” says Elisa
p.s. If you are in Vienna please go and see them for me! I wanted to go, but the tickets to get there were really expensive...
