ELLISE UNVEILS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM CHAOTIC

FIRST EVER LIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO OF TITLE
TRACK OUT TODAY

FULL LIVE SESSION DUE MAY 28

“Enveloped in her customary dark vibes, piano runs are scattered through the intro and choruses, accompanied by strong synth pulses. Along with a twisted music video where the singer is forced to become a doll, the track is a hypnotic piece that you’ll be dancing to on repeat.”–Alternative Press on “Feeling Something Bad”

“Rising pop star Ellise offered up another gem from her forthcoming debut album. ‘Feeling Something Bad’ is Ellise’s version of a crush song, infused with jolting instrumentals and the singer’s wide-ranging vocals.”—UPROXX on “Feeling Something Bad”

Alternative pop star Ellise shares her debut album Chaotic today via Hell Bent Heaven Sent / EMPIRE; listen HERE. Ellise’s first ever live performance video of the title track is also out today at 3pm ET, with a full live session to follow on May 28.

Written almost entirely by Ellise herself, Chaotic reflects her upbringing listening to her father’s classic rock and Iranian mother’s traditional Arabic music, combined with her own pop sensibility influenced by the sights and sounds of the Y2K era. Three singles, each with its own video, preceded today’s release: “Over Breakfast” (listen HERE), “Feeling Something Bad” (listen HERE) and “Bubblegum Brain” (listen HERE).

“I never want to be the good guy all the time. I think it's okay to say that and let people know who you are,” says Ellise about the record and its ruminations on love, loss and what it’s like to feel flawed in a world that often demands perfection. “For now, I want to just keep making music that feels like me, that I feel like is special and that I feel like people will enjoy. This Ellise universe that I’m building out is just getting started.”

Bay Area-born Ellise is attracted to pop music's ability to access the dark sides of the human experience. Her catalogue includes two Halloween EPs: 2018's Can You Keep a Secret? and 2019’s Under My Bed. “911” from her debut EP attracted significant attention upon release, and Ellise has only continued to build her following since then, with over 100 million total streams across platforms to date.
