Absorbing alt-pop from the Danish composer...

Danish project Ellis May have a sweeping grandeur to her alt-pop compositions.

Real name Sophia Maj, her classical touches bring a poetic flourish to each song, rooting them in her own life.

Incoming EP 'The Distance' is about loss and recovery, and it stems from a personal tragedy from her childhood.

The family home burned down just before Christmas, caused by a mistake made by the electric company.

The title cut is beautifully balanced, between a sombre lyric, taut arrangement, and that soaring vocal.

We're able to share it in full - tune in now.

Ellis May will release her new EP 'The Distance' is on April 5th.
