Ellis May wants her work to operate on numerous different levels.
The Danish composer - real name Sophia Maj - studied sound design, and there's this sense of exactness to her work.
Cool, clinical electronics with a pop feel, she's able to match this hyper-real aesthetic to songwriting that connects to a deeply personal place.

With her debut EP incoming the songwriter is ready to share new single 'The Distance', and it's prompted in part by a childhood tragedy.

'The Distance' is about coming together, channelling feelings of loss into something positive. Tune in now.
