Singer and actor Elise leads with emotional honesty and creatively refreshing vibes on this latest single.
Beginning with a uniquely spacious soundscape, delicate and unusual in detail, the song creates a calm yet intriguing aura from the offset. Then you get Elise’ vocal lead, a lower-toned sound than many of her peers, smooth yet capable of meandering throughout the various evolving melodies of the single. With this come the lyrics, deeply personal, scene-setting and faultlessly true to the singer’s own story and experiences.
As the track progresses, the melody changes significantly, almost showcasing a freestyle or hip hop inspired way with writing and performance. The beat throws in a few additional details to reinforce this, and the whole concept of the song soon becomes clear throughout the entire artistic arrangement.
There’s an addictive little moment when the melody and soundscape fall away, I’d trade it all for you, and then you’re left with this dreamlike wave of audio warmth and intrigue, followed later by echoed fragments of voice; all of which adds cleverly to the whole experience and escapism of the track.
Boldly paving its own way, A Frame speaks volumes on behalf of the style, honesty and unpredictability that’s likely to follow from Elise.
