You would never guess UK singer Eloïse was just 18 from her music. After already catching BBC Introducing's eye, the songstress recently debuted a double A-side with the lead track "Studio 54," an ambient and Banks-like darkness combined with an R&B and pop sound. Eloïse is already killing it, with a voice reminiscent of Florence meets Lana and a vibe that as she puts it, is "a look at what it's actually like to be my age." Into it.
