Elizaveta – “Hero” EP (2014)

Label: Flower Army Records

Review by Luisa Mercier

Elizaveta is a Russian, USA based singer songwriter that I already come to love and appreciate with her previous record “Beatrix Runs”. She plays an elegant, classical influenced adult pop that is paired with beautiful videos like the one for “Dreamer”. After leaving her former record label, she recorded this new EP and as always it is very high quality music. The record is opened by the title-track, a beautiful song with a magnificient strings background crowned by her sweet, vocals. I was really pleased when I got to listen to it for the first time and it just confirms her talent. “Red Balloon” is quite different on the other hand. She was used to play piano based music, quite slow paced, while here she tries an electro track with a clear dance vibe, very cheerful and happy. “Sorry” takes us back to her usual sound and it is a beautiful pop song, piano based, with a string background that would have been perfect for a film soundtrack; really dramatic indeed and with a slight blues influence in the end. Another attempt at electro is “Spaceman” which is darker than “Red Ballon”, with industrial and dubstep influences, I really enjoyed this a lot too. “God Only Knows” is another sultry song with an orchestral edge, very melancholic and eerie. Elizaveta has delivered another beautiful work to the world of music.

Rating – 80/100
