Ella Fence Releases New Single + Video “Dancer” From Upcoming EP
Following the success of her debut EP WANDERLUST, Australian pop/folk artist Ella Fence releases her new single “Dancer”, produced by Vinnie LaDuce, giving us the first taste of her upcoming EP due for release mid 2017. The track is a unique mix of cinematic-electro-pop and powerhouse vocals that touches the senses, evokes emotions and captivates audiences.
“The Dancer is the party. He is your lust, your desires, your indulgence. I wrote this track in retrospect, reflecting on the exhaustion of an imbalanced relationship. But every scenario is multifaceted and there is always a story untold. This song is about wanting something you shouldn’t, and the circus of thoughts that accompany every big decision“.
– ELLA FENCE
In collaboration with APRA award winning songwriter/producer and multi-instrumentalist, Vinnie LaDuce (MT Warning, Feeding Fauna, Ash Grunwald, The Winnie Coopers), “Dancer” is the first instalment from a six-track EP, featuring songs that explore lust, broken promises, indulgence, flamboyance and desire. This shift in style for Ella is shown through incorporating the bold sounds of synthesisers and programmed beats that move the body as much as the lyrics spark the mind. It’s a passionate, raw take on her experiences as a strong uncompromising artist, navigating her way through a world where it sometimes seems that everyone has a hidden agenda.
