Just Listen: Ex:Re – Romance (6 Music Live Room)

Ex:Re – Romance

Words: Rachel Allen

The melancholic beauty of Elena Tonra’s vocal cannot be denied during her latest project, this time a separate creation to the lead vocalist’s band Daughter.

The single ‘Romance’ from her new solo album shows this off in all its multifaceted layers, and in particular, during her live rendition of the song for 6 Music. Her painful, breakup song, and her detailed narrative of the story is supported by a moving soundscape of synth and drums that are sensitive to the narrative, movement and flow of the voice.

There is a sublime gentleness to her heartache, which is ironic, but also strength and feeling, which comes through in the live context. She has certainly piqued my interest for the rest of her album and I think for a solo project she can certainly pin this song up as the beginning of her solo success!
