Elora Gets Personal in Debut Single, "Gullible" 

Today is a double post kind of day, but how can it not be when there's so much great music out there? This time, I'm proud to introduce you to Elora, an emerging musician from Brooklyn. Her debut single Gullible shines with personality and honesty, but not for the reasons you might think.

     At first glance, the song seems like it's about a failing relationship, but that couldn't be further from the truth. According to Elora, Gullible is about the day she got scammed over the phone. So what does she do? Well, she writes an absolute banger about it of course!

     The song opens with the lines "I am gullible, I believed all of the words you said / And I have struggled to unlearn trust and expect dread", which I'm sure a lot of us can relate to. Even the least trusting humans will put their trust in something or someone, and to see that trust get broken hurts immensely. Later on in the song, she scolds herself for falling for the scam by singing “I’m sorry, and a broken promise, my dumbass thought that he was honest." 

     Sonically, the track gives us an indie rock / alt pop sound that Elora and her co-producer, Theo Walentiny, executed perfectly. With pulsating and swelling synths like a fast heartbeat and prominent drums, the music itself shows how Elora felt during the aftermath of her mistake. The song then ends abruptly, which doesn't work for every song, but it simply makes sense for this one.

     Now, I will, much like the song, abruptly end my summary of the track, and get into my review. To put it simply, if this is Elora's debut single, then her career should absolutely be set and good to go. It's not every day that you hear a debut so unique and intricately crafted, so go and listen to her before she soars alongside bigger musicians like Weyes Blood and Zella Day. It'll be worth it. I promise.
