Growing up in a small town can lead to many existential attacks that you can only alleviate by crawling out of the hole of despair with a broody, dreampop. Luckily, gals like Elle Watson captures that longing every small town kid suffers in her track “Walls.” With her ear-cuddling vocals and doomingly, aesthetic melody, “Walls” frames the solitude of being physically stuck in a shithole and trying to kill the time by dreaming away. So play away:

Elle Watson grew up in Sevenoaks, Kent (UK), which is the epitome of a small town. “Walls”, produced by the hip hop beat creator Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples), is from her debut EP Phantom, which will be out on December.

The 19-year-old is set to play in London at Servant Jazz Quarters on December 5th.
