For newcomers and latecomers there has been no greater introduction to rising West-Midlands artist Nieve Ella, than her recent singles ‘His Sofa’, ‘Big House’ and ‘Your Room’. Nieve Ella has now shared her anticipated new EP ‘Lifetime of Wanting’ alongside new single ‘Car Park’ released on AWAL Recordings.

Winning fans with her potent indie pop confessionals melded to the ambiance of 90’s guitar-pop Ella has charted an impressive rise to notoriety since the release of her debut single ‘Girlfriend’ last year. With sincerity as her superpower, Ella’s exploration of relatable teenage themes and earnest inward lyricism continues to place her as one of the next generations storytellers.

Close behind recent single ‘Your Room’, Nieve Ella’s new 5-tracker is an open-hearted offering. Building on the ambitions of her debut EP ‘Young and Naive’ Ella continues her knack for pairing knock-out choruses with potent elements of her broader indie-pop palette. Produced by Iain Berrymen (Beabadoobee, Young Fathers, Wolf Alice), ‘Lifetime Of Wanting’, weaves a course through the relatable trials and tribulations of young love, while coined by Ella herself as her “love song era!”.

My first ep was based on my life 2 years ago – a period where I felt unwanted and unsure of myself. A lot has changed since then, and with this new project I went in with a whole new mindset. The person I am today had to find a way to write about being in-love.” explains Ella of her new EP.

Ella introduces her new EP with explosive lead single ‘Car Park’. Frothy crash cymbals and dazed guitars lay the architecture for Ella’s distinctive raspy vocal, as she sings of acknowledging that relationships aren’t always perfect.

Describing her new single, Ella comments, “Car Park is the acknowledgement that relationships aren’t always perfect and they take hard work from both ends. But, having that constant in your life, that person being there for you and loving you despite your flaws, makes it all worthwhile. I would do anything to make it work despite my doubts and insecurities, and this song captures that feeling for me.”

Healing broken hearts through hooks and harmonies, 20-year-old Ella has already gained the attention of BBC Radio 1’s Introducing, Greg James’ ‘Record Of The Week’ and Jack Saunders, whilst racking up over 3 million streams as well as stellar praise from media including NME, Rolling Stone UK, The Independent, DORK, Clash, The Line of Best Fit, The Forty-Five, Gigwise, Wonderland, Hunger and more. It’s a testament to Nieve’s raw talent for authentic and vulnerable songwriting at such a young age. There is no grandstanding, no attempt at hiding how truly confusing it is to be young. It’s why Ella and her songs continue to connect and her fanbase grow exponentially, earmarking her as one of 2023’s most exciting
new artists.

Following from supporting Dylan on her recent European tour alongside dates with Inhaler, and playing her debut show at this years Glastonbury Festival alongside The Great Escape, Barn On The Farm and Boardmasters, Nieve Ella will continue to play an impressive run of festival dates this summer including Reading & Leeds, All Points East, Reeperbahn and more…
