Sydney native Ellogram last worked with Baltimore bred, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Lauren Ruth Ward in 2016 when they collaborated on his Come Home single. Now they’re back with a bang on his new single I Wanna Go – check it out below.
The track is a great vehicle for them both. Ward shows off her vocal dexterity, softening her more raw rock tones to deliver a performance that feels infused with an aura of restrained passion and emotional depth. Musically the song sees Ellogram tweak his sound to lighten his more understated nuances with an arrangement that reminds me of those times when you’re feeling sad but still want to go out and dance. Top all that off with a few subtle Scandipop/Eurotrance musical signatures – this track is for the clubs but certainly not a brainless banger – and you have something that instantly triggers the feet and the soul.
I Wanna Go is out now and can be streamed on Spotify.
