In recent months we have had our senses tingled by the sultry tones and smouldering melodies of London based Scouser, Elsie. Her tunes have given us cause to have more than one metaphorical shower as she sexed up the airwaves with subtle musical smoochiness and overt raunchiness.
Her new single, “Take Your Time In Love” may have retained a certain boudoir charm, all low beats, low lights and sultry undulations within the arrangement, it is less ‘come to bed eyes’, more ‘furrowed brow of warning’. While the music may evoke silken sheets crumpling beneath entwined limbs and sheer curtains billowing in the breeze, lyrically this is a cautionary tale about rushing in (only fools do as we all know) and letting things get out of hand.
She sings as someone who has been burnt in love before and who doesn’t want others to make the same mistakes she has, but damn we’ve never heard a public warning sound so smokey and hot before. We’re not quite sure how she does it, but Elise even manages to make advising against having sex sound sexy. That’s one hell of a talent.
