“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is a newcomer from San Diego, where she graduated from singing in the shower to singing amongst showers of flying beer with various local punk groups and performing at . Now based in LA, Elisia Savoca is carving out an intriguing triumvirate of EPs, with “Falling” from the first one, portentously titled “ACT 1 – MANIFESTO” (out soon on Band of Others), being disco with bite, Roisin Murphy’s glitter-baller channelling Karen O’s lip bitten rage.
If this is the Manifesto, then we’re in for quite a journey, and as it transpires, Elisia’s “song for ewe” choice is telling in its multi-faceted art-dance credentials, and lithesome layered production. When it comes to pure pop with subtle grit earned from the sweaty clubs of SoMa, the interweaving of CBGB with Studio 54, Elisia Savoca is a lefreaking chic one to watch and we’re happy she’s dropped by chez Sheep…
Elisia Savoca’s first EP “ONE OF US” featured a cover of the Nancy Sinatra opus “Bang Bang” and several Savoca songs picked up airplay on TV shows like MTV’s Teen Mom and Siesta Key and with my TV day job hat on I can discern why – enough shine to punch through, enough edge to be noticeable. You have to admire the artistic bombast of a triptych of four track EPs – presumably it’s “ACT 2” and “ACT 3” to follow, and it’s this level of stagecraft and theatrical bent that makes Savoca uber interesting, and her reputation is enhanced in my eyes by her impeccable taste in song choice for our feature.
Without further ado, here’s Elisia Savoca’s “song for ewe”/
“I’m so in love with this French artist. mostly because of her melodies and the way we create a whole character, it’s amazing.
I also love the production on this. it’s a perfect balance of weird and crazy.”
Thanks to Elisia and to Michael Eisele at Big Hassle Media.
