Noir-pop songstress Eloïse released her new single, ‘Suckers.’
The young London artist dazzles in her latest release, and evokes a poetic and emotional maturity beyond her years. Her vivid, concise descriptions paint a story and speak to her distinct sense of personal style.
‘Suckers’ oozes with satirical lyricism about loveless, even parasitic, relationships. Lovers are merely empty vessels yearning for each other’s last drops in this moody track. In a low, sonorous tone, Eloïse broods about a reality where we douse ourselves in lustful charades. Through a blend of dark pop, electronica, and hints of R&B, she evokes an image of fake gold jewelry, faux fur, and cheap tuxedos. She tips her hat to the costumes we wear to feign luxury, and boldly calls us all out on the cold treatment we’re willing to endure, or even dish out.
In her own words, Eloïse has created a brand of “dark pop that always manages to be sinister somehow”. Her latest releasee carries on this legacy, with its appropriately cynical take on “painful bliss” and how we’re all just suckers.
