Captivating artist Elaskia reveals dance-pop gem ‘Better’
Australian icon Elaskia returns with indie-pop infused new single ‘Better‘, and it’s definitely a track that could fill a dancefloor.
Produced by Rod McCormack and Elaskia herself, the track was mixed by McCormack (Paul Kelly, Guy Sebastian, Kasey Chambers), and mastered at Sterling Sound by Chris Gehringer (Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga, Rihanna).
Sharing her thoughts on the exceptional new track, Elaskia explains, “I wrote this about realising your own worth even when someone else doesn’t.
I think some people confuse self-worth with being selfish and this is the exact opposite of that. It’s about knowing what you deserve and not being afraid to stand up for that.”
Like the rest of the world, the Lockdown affected Elaskia and her close friends. Adding to this, the songwriter shares, “During that time I found that a few of them were experiencing relationships and situations where they felt stuck and almost like they had to settle where they were because nothing else was happening.
It was really sad to see that happen to people I think the world of and I guess that’s what initially inspired me to write ‘Better’. I really feel like no matter what situation you are in (even when it’s extremely difficult) you should never feel like you have to settle for something that doesn’t feel right to you or make you feel good enough.
It’s about being okay on your own and having that self-validation and self-worth even when others don’t give it to you.”
“Better” is an ambitious return from Australia’s biggest sweetheart.
