Rising dark pop star Ellise returns with her third and longest Halloween album ‘Letting The Wolf In’
Thematically, each of the eight tracks on ‘Letting The Wolf In’ is pulled from the pages of Grimms’ Fairy Tales, laced with Ellise’s signature sound and wide-ranging vocals. For example, the album title itself pulls inspiration from “Little Red Riding Hood:” you know what’s going to come, but you’re letting the wolf in because you can’t help yourself from wanting it. And the song ‘Sandman,’ based on the tale of a man who puts kids to sleep with magic dust, encapsulates the feeling that life may never get better so why can’t we go to sleep forever?
Ellise shares that ‘Letting The Wolf In’ differs from ‘Chaotic’ musically in the sense that it incorporates harder and deeper sounds, but content-wise, both albums were written while Ellise was sorting through difficult moments in her life and relationships. Looking ahead to the future, Ellise has been listening to all different types of music and is excited to continue exploring with all different styles of pop music and sounds.
“I started writing this record in June and was working on it until up until just a few weeks ago, so I was still sorting through stuff, a lot of the same kind of stuff I was processing when I wrote CHAOTIC: toxic, back-and-forth, chaotic relationships. Before CHAOTIC, most of my discography was Halloween and spooky music and then I finally got to dip my toe into all different styles of pop with CHAOTIC. I finally feel like I’ve said everything I’ve needed to say with these two albums and I’m ready to close the book and explore what’s next,” Ellise says.
Prior to ‘Chaotic,’ “911” from her debut EPattracted significant attention upon release. Ellise has only continued to build an unstoppable brand filled with bubblegum pop palettes, a sound that is distinctively hers, and an audience that thrives over every release and every tweet. Her following is consistently growing, with more than 100+ million total streams across platforms to date.
