Elza – “Endeavor”


After impressing with her track “Swayed” last month, Elza is back with another success in “Endeavor”. Here, the Canadian solo artist pursues a more contemplative sound, more in the vein of Portishead. Rainy-day keys and lush vocals adorn the intro, the wordless croon at 00:53 preceding a more upfront percussive emphasis. The keys, percussion, and guitars glide with unified precision at 02:12, with the remainder of the track riding on this enjoyable, rainy-day groove.

Along with “Swayed”, “Endeavor” is a track off Elza’s upcoming album Nothing’s Wrong, out on November 2nd.

“Endeavor” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2018’ Spotify playlist.
