Ellie Dixon Showcases Her Impressive Versatility On New Track Sucker
That's The One: Ellie Dixon | Cambridge/London
To be self-aware of acting madly in love is both a blessing and a curse.
After all, at least you can spin your slightly unhinged actions into an incessantly catchy pop song as is the case for Ellie Dixon and her new track Sucker.
Described as an ‘indie-pop wunderkind’, Cambridge-born Ellie Dixon self-produces all her own work, blending indie with R&B, jazz and rock to create a unique fusion of bedroom pop that has landed her attention from the likes of Glass Animals, Zara Larsson, and BBC Introducing. It’s evident from her YouTube Channel, that’s mostly populated by DIY covers of popular songs using unconventional items (such as Watermelon Sugar played on a… watermelon), that Dixon is one of those rare talents who makes music production look as easy as breathing.
Following her last release, tongue-in-cheek sci-fi bop Space Out which highlighted the artists penchant for daydreaming and feeling detached from reality, Sucker continues to play with themes of balancing imagination and fantasy within the real world; this time tackling one-sided romance. The track is peppered with Dixon’s trademark humour and swings from delicate vocals to conversational rap to emotional cries supported by a serving of delicious lead guitar and jazzy synths. The production is polished with layered guitars and percussive elements creating a rich soundscape without sounding cluttered, all the while showcasing the striking versatility this artist has to offer.
We can’t wait to see what she has in store next.
