Sparse, affecting songwriting from a Dutch talent...

ELLA is the latest iteration of Ella van der Woude's creative identity.

A musician and songwriter of rare scope, she has worked as part of a group, as well as continuing her own solo adventures.

ELLA's debut EP arrives on January 19th, with Clash able to share sparse, moving new cut 'While You Are Away' as a teaser.

Lyrically, ELLA's continual sleight of hand allows her to communicate deeply personal, rather intense emotions while maintaining control.

Musically, the revolving guitar motif is allied to those hushed vocals, with the singer intoning: "I savor our grief/I savor our misery..."

Tune in now.
