Single Release: Essie Holt – Better For You
Melbourne-based artist Essie Holt has just revealed tour dates and her new single ‘Better For You’ – produced by Mark Zito (Fractures) and mixed by Dave Hammer (Nicole Millar, Thundamentals).
Glimmering with walls of synth, subtle yet apt percussion and emotively-driven vocals, ‘Better For You’ is a sophisticated slice of electronic indie-pop. Structure and dynamics are harnessed with finesse, as elegant verses glide effortlessly into its soaring infectious chorus.
To launch the release, Essie will set out in August to support LANKS on ten shows of his ‘twentyseven’ album tour, before headlining performances in September at Brighton Up Bar, Sydney and The Workers Club, Melbourne.
Since April, Essie has worked tirelessly traversing the East Coast sharing stages with the likes of GLADES, Northeast Party House, Elderbrook (UK), and also featured on a run of East Coast indie club night parties alongside fellow rising stars Muki and Teischa.
Essie’s previous single ‘Magnetise’ was strongly supported by the likes of triple j with an add to spot rotation, triple j Unearthed via their NIDA music video competition, and Apple Music and Spotify – who added the song to a slew of global playlists.
Over the coming months, Essie will continue to write and record in the studio working on her debut EP (due early-2019).
