Sydney’s East of Ely burst onto the scene a few months back with their epic debut single “Easy Friend,” a track that had a lot of people keen to hear what more the band had in store. The other day I was actually thinking that it was about time for some new music from them when lo and behold their second single appeared in my inbox.
“Came Without” is a new approach, with the five-piece opting for a much slicker plan of attack. Gone are the epic choruses and marching percussion, replaced with a devilishly smooth groove and plenty of flickering piano chords, topped off with a touch of falsetto vocal. If you’re looking for a catchy new pop jam, this is the one for you.
It’s a definite step-up from their earlier release, and a track that will no doubt turn a number of heads East of Ely’s way. With a debut EP scheduled for release early next year, expect to be hearing a lot more from this exciting group.
