Synthesizing pop DNA with the glimmering strands of harp, EllaHarp crafts a celestial and fleecy soundscape in her single “Screaming Into The Void.” With its dreamy arrangement of percussions and synths, the track suspends you into an introspective state filled with doubts and flickering hopes. “Send it to the emptiness and never tell / Blow it a kiss and wish it well / And scream” chants EllaHarp. Lyrically, the track breaks down the doubts musicians face in the digital era where there are less barriers to get their music out, but more competition than ever. From its rhythmic frissons to its smeared ambience, “Screaming Into The Void” yields a mellow vibe that has been glossed with the indulgent hooks of pop”

On her new single, the gal shared: “’Screaming Into The Void’ was written in a moment of frustration about releasing music in the digital age. In many ways it’s easier than ever to make a splash, but amidst the overwhelming quantity of music coming out on any given day it can feel a lot like you’re making literally no difference whatsoever.”
