In this world, the elusive idea of love is like gold dust, and some might mistake it for lust;
Before turning Twice your back on a cold Elusive Pleasure, left alone in a winter wonderland,
You once felt Bold enough to start Chasing happiness, in the springtime of your hopefulness.
Endlessly Dreaming of an idyllic summertime delight, all falls down when you eventually wake up to reality…
Diana Ebe, Swedish singer-songwriter, based in Los Angeles pictures perfectly this idea of delusion throughout her 7 track EP Elusive Pleasure.
We’ve already discussed this EP along an interview having Diana Ebe talk about capturing the right feelings in songwriting.
Now she’s back with a completed project, available on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud.
Indeed, besides the poetic lyrics, vivid enough to visualize a Diana either whispering her lyrics alone in her bed, either wandering in the nature, her source of inspiration,
The music production reflects perfectly raw feelings; the result is gem.
Across an atmospheric and progressive sound, Diana makes a way to translate her feels of expectation, eagerness, frustration, confusion,…
Finally the cover art emphasizes this idea. The light shades of gray, red and blue (or violet), seem to reflect all these mentioned feelings,
Along with love/happiness, and sadness (passion/frustration/loneliness…)
Talking about music production, we know Diana Ebe produces a lot herself too, and if one track should be considered as a master piece,
This is her third track Dreaming.
Even though Elusive Pleasure was the first song to give her satisfaction, and Chasing the song to inspire her to compose a whole EP,
Dreaming remains the most surprising track.
The way it ends gives a perfect rendition of what it feels when one of the sweetest dreams suddenly stops,
Most of the times too soon, when the pleasure was reaching its zenith… This is the actual sensation of an elusive pleasure.
Diana has been quite active these past months, giving multiple performances in Los Angeles.
With a music video is yet to expect soon enough, we’re about to see the career of young artist bloom!
