Eleanor may have just created one of the glossiest, 80s tastic tracks of the year with her debut solo single, “All I Want.”
You may recognise Eleanor’s voice as being half of the Manchester sibling synth duo that is Girl Friend, that have gone to receive acclaim from music critics!
Now it’s time for Eleanor to branch out and extend her glorious pop talents as a solo artist – and what better way to do it than with the amazing “All I Want.”
The track feels like it was plucked straight out of the disco era, with its funky cords and heavy synth bass that carry the entire song, before a classic disco drop into the chorus that would get everyone from your five-year-old brother to your 90-year-old grandma on their feet.
Eleanor’s distinctive vocal is on form here, standing out from the production enough so we can appreciate her marvellous tones, but not too much to completely overshadow it.
Rarely do I receive a press release that hits the nail on the head as much as the one I received for this track; “she places herself somewhere between Tove Lo and Dua Lipa, with the modern influences of Polica and Christine and the Queens, effortlessly conjuring older influences such as Sophie Ellis Bextor and Blondie” – I couldn’t put it any better!
