Having emerged to the UK music scene as Eliza Doolittle and reinventing herself as Eliza in 2017, the London-based singer gives us an offering for those intense warm summer nights with ‘Heat of the Moon’. Over crisp snares and heavy bass-production, her latest single is a sultry neo-soul ballad about being deeply enveloped in the throes of the emotional sensations that come when one falls in love again.
Speaking on the song’s inspiration, Eliza said – “I found the love of all things in his eyes and that’s when I knew he saw the same in mine. A major catalyst for a wild, boundless openness that I’d never experienced before that moment”. The song strengths her poignant songwriting and eagerness in blending different genres, taking musical influences from Aaliyah, Nujabes and the Roots.
The music video, directed by Charlie Robins shows Eliza traversing through forests before releasing herself into a free-form expressive dance. Check out the music video below.
