[PREMIERE] ELA Lindsey – Healing Me Slow

ELA Lindsey debuts with “Healing Me Slow”, an incredible and gritty pop track that should put her on the radar of anyone with a good ear to the ground. This song is seriously awesome and floored me the first time I heard it. ELA Lindsey’s voice is gentle and innocent in the verses, yet intense and haunting when layered in chorus. The production is unique and ambitious with a metallic ringing that helps build energy in a perfectly disquieting way.

ELA Lindsey is not afraid to utilize silence and space in a way that’s seriously refreshing. Pockets of silence in the verses and dropped percussion layers in the chorus keep me completely hooked and keeps my focus exactly where she wants it. Also this song fades out!! It’s a welcomed rarity in 2018 and the effect had me gripped until the inevitable silence, which I promptly fixed by playing the song again. I’m grateful to debut this track and I have no doubt this song will draw eyes and ears to ELA Lindsey’s dark new sound.

In her words:
I didn’t realize it at the time I wrote it, but “Healing Me Slow” pretty much sums up my life. Because I had a traumatic childhood, and I’m human, I spent many years closed off, bitter, and hurt. I had to learn to open up, pursue healing for myself, and forgive. I feel more like myself now than I’ve ever felt. Healing can sometimes be quick, but for me, it’s taken time and that’s ok. Love heals, and that’s what this song is about.” – ELA Lindsey
