We recently introduced South African singer Elan Lea to music.co.uk, and thought after he gave us such a nice interview, it would only be fair to give his new single a turn under the spotlight too. ‘Right Anyway’ is the first single to be taken from his album ‘My Only Excuse’, and by all accounts is a good introduction to what Elan Lea is all about!
Elan has a smooth mix of pop and indie in his vocals, which are telling a quite heart warming tale of someone losing their way, ignoring advice, and eventually getting their life back on the right track. It’s something everyone can relate to, and coupled with a piano led pop/rock melody, adds a lot of commercial appeal to the track as well. When the beat kicks in, it grows nicely into a toe tapping track, and although it ends quite suddenly, and could’ve done with more punch in the chorus, I enjoyed it. I think we could be hearing a fair bit from Elan Lea in the future, so music.co.uk says Elan Lea is one to watch in 2010!
