Realism, self-depreciation and a generous sprinkling of badass are at the forefront of Ellie Dixon‘s latest single, Sucker. Cambridge born and self-produced, Ellie Dixon has brought together indie-pop, rap, jazz and R&B in the unique and addictively chaotic soundscape of her recent releases.
Sucker captures tales of young & unrequited love, reflecting on trying (and failing) to catch the other’s attention and how absurd they feel looking back. The single, based on an idea originally conceived for a BBC Introducing workshop, balances swaggering bass lines, conversational lyricism, poppy electric piano and Dixon’s trademark humorous touches.
The alt-pop artist has taken social media by storm with this release: imaginative creativity, home production and a relatability that has lead to Sucker featuring on Radio 1, Ellie Dixon is not an artist to miss.
Ellie Dixon‘s self-produced music video for Sucker, filmed by Sophie Winter, is a fusion of striking dance moves, dramatic lighting and a punk confidence reminiscent of Yungblud. Speaking about the video on Instagram:
“I knew instantly I wanted a dance video with quirky, unconventional movement so I hit up Bar (Bar Groisman) over Instagram with the video pitch…we passed inspirations back and forth, and then us dancing in our bedrooms until we have the final dance.”
