Ellis Shares “what if love isn’t enough”
nothing is sacred anymore EP out June 25th
In April, Ellis announced her latest EP nothing is sacred anymore which is set for release on June 25th. Announced with the single “Hospital,” the EP is the first new music from Ellis (the alias of Hamilton, Ontario musician Linnea Siggelkow) since the release of her debut LP Born Again, which arrived right as the pandemic began on April 3rd of 2020 and followed her breakout first EP The Fuzz. Like The Fuzz, her upcoming EP sees Ellis working as her own producer again, this time alongside Charlie Spencer (of the band Dizzy), and it is perhaps her most emotionally intimate work to date, a quality that is foregrounded on the EP’s latest single “what if love isn’t enough.”
With “what if love isn’t enough” Ellis allows this intimate insight into a raw and personal infliction. This tender ensemble focuses on the stunning vocal melodies which soar above the swaying rhythmic pull from the instrumentation. The electronic structure building the consuming atmosphere offers this sweeping formation of cascading magnetic harmonies.
Ellis continues to showcase this unique ability to deliver soft and dreamy creations filled with a tender lyrical journey emitting endless emotion and offering a complex ambiance.
“I mean, this is a question I’ve asked myself a bunch, usually when I’m being a little bit dramatic which happens to be often,” Siggelkow explains. “But I’ve also seen relationships fizzle out even when two people seem to really love each other. We place so much emphasis on love but I guess I just wonder about all the other stuff needed to make it last forever. I’m a hopeless romantic at heart but sometimes I’m just hopeless.“
Ellis’ nothing is sacred anymore EP is due out June 25th. It is available for preorder here.
