Eloise Deals With Break-Up Trauma On ‘Therapist’

"My songwriting has always been honest, but this feels raw..."

Eloise has shared her pointed new song ‘Therapist’.

The songwriter’s new album ‘Drunk On A Flight’ is complete, an autobiographical song cycle that dips into her life. Hugely personal, it pivots between frisky alt-pop melodies and cutting lyricism that has a journalist gaze.

Out on April 14th, the record is trailed by new song ‘Therapist’, a self-confessed “diss track” aimed at an immature ex-boyfriend. A song about refusing to carry someone’s emotional load, she beams: “You’re acting like a boy but I fell for a man.”

Letting it all hang out, ‘Therapist’ is the sound of someone taking their life as their own, and leaving those troubles behind.

“Ending a long-term relationship at 23, you feel such a loss of time and adolescence and that can make you so frustrated,” she explains. “What have I learned from all of this? And what am I stuck with at the end of all of this? My songwriting has always been honest, but this feels raw – like I’m exploring all the shades of emotion.”

Tune in now.
