The world of music can be compared to a massive gold mine. There are lots of riches to found if you are lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.
Now I know that Facebook gets a lot of negative press and maybe on occasion the criticism is deserved. But this time they deserve my thanks, because, otherwise I would not be writing this review.
In my opinion “Electric Princess “will be an iconic album from one of the brightest and most promising stars in this musical universe.
When I had Eleesha put forward as a potential friend little did I know the door of discovery it would open.
Like myself Eleesha is a big fan of Marc Bolan and Prince. Also a big influence on Eleesha’s musical direction is John Peel. John gave a voice to so many artists who maybe otherwise might never have broken into the big time. His music show was broadcast 10 to midnight Monday to Friday on BBC Radio 1 countless artists have openly credited john’s show with giving them the break they so badly needed. Such is the influence of John on Eleesha that the release date of Electric Princess coincides with his birthday on August 30th.But let’s get back to the the matter in hand . This is a guitar driven album but with a very distinctive style that’s all Eleesha’s. Eleesha is a fender girl there’s absolutely no doubt about that.
While she says acoustic is fine, it’s the power of the electric guitar that Eleesha is all about. The album opens with “I wanna see ya “ actually it’s the first song Eleesha wrote. It certainly pulls no punches musically or lyrically, but then isn’t that what music should be all about, it should entertain, but it should not be sanitised in fact it should leave you feeling a little uncomfortable. “Dopamine” is very much a Prince influenced number a beautiful song .Theres “Back Haired Beauty” a pulsating piece of rock n toll. Then “Field Of Horses “the lyrics are very powerful as is the music. Eleesha is like a breath of fresh air, in that she plays what she likes, not trying to be something she’s not.
In the early days of rock n’ roll when Jerry Lee Lewis sang about “A Whole Lotta Shaking Going On,”or when Elvis wiggled his hips to “jailhouse rock “. Rock n roll then was truly for the rebel spirits.
Eleesha has that dynamite combination of stunning looks with sex appeal that’s just off the scale. Couple that with music that takes you back to the halcyon days of Bowie and T.Rex. Well that’s a combination capable of setting the world of music on fire . Be warned the match has already been struck, and this fire is simply unstoppable 🔥
