Naked by Elsie and The Vibe
We are happy to share the new track from Brooklyn-based soul / R&B artist Elsie and The Vibe called “Naked,” a stripped down, gorgeous track which will appear on her upcoming self-titled debut, dropping on August 18th.
“In contrast to Elsie and The Vibe’s earlier releases (Riverside, Just Don’t), Elsie has shed the vintage brass, Motown rhythm and fiery keys to reveal vulnerable vocals, delicate piano and a string quartet. Elsie’s fragile story telling swells to an uplifting final chorus, her vocals soaring over the strings and piano that have morphed into an army of resilience.
Elsie explains that the process of writing Naked allowed her to ‘discover the strength that underlies vulnerability’ and she ‘used this sense of empowerment as an anchor to overcome her own insecurities around exposing her truth through music.'”
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – don’t sleep on Elsie and The Vibe. With a sound reminiscent of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, and Emeli Sande, she’s ready for radio and stardom.
