about

“American Lover” showcases this aesthetic in all its tipsy glory. Teshima stumbles through memories, reflecting and trying to move on. Yet this plays out over synth notes and a beat that sways forward, prone to sudden turns but always grounded in a rhythm apt for the dance floor. Australian producer Super Magic Hats offers up a dreamy rework here, as well.

This is just the first chapter in ELLEH’s sad boy disco story. They will release their first EP, Anthems Part 1 this April, featuring “American Lover” and building on it thematically, exploring one person’s bargaining with heartbreak and turning to music as salvation as the dawn approaches.

Track Name: American Lover
I gave you my heart
You gave me yours
We planted a gold
And it grew in 3 years

But I sold it
Without notice

You are my ex American lover
You had a heart of a million dollar
We shed some tears of silver
And I sold it
Without notice

I didn’t come here to fight
My heart
I didn’t come here to fight
Against my will

I measured the depth of love
I need some time to hide in the cave

You are my ex American lover
You had a heart of a million dollar
We shed some tears of silver
And I sold it
Without notice

“You always be…”
“I never retrieve what we had”
“What we had is gone away”

You are my ex American lover
You had a heart of a million dollar
We shed some tears of silver
And I sold it
Without notice
