Be it Disney or movies belonging to the genre of romance, each work puts forth certain characteristics defining an “ideal man”. As Darcy corrects his pride and prejudice, he becomes the charismatic ideal man every girl would aspire to marry. But is it really the case with everyone?
Eloise does not think so. In her new single, Eloise takes the definition of an ideal man and rips it off to present an affair with an anti-hero. The protagonist is a “cold man” adorning a “cheap tuxedo” who is anything but sweet. There is an attempt to show the kind of relationship that survives on falsity and uncertainty.
The tone used is satirical and it aims to make people realize the absurdity behind conventional notions of human character. The song carries the vibes of postmodernism as it tries to create a new meaning out of predetermined signifier. The very act of writing then becomes the symbol of rebellion for Eloise who is trying to carve a new niche for her kind of music.
As Eloise refers to herself as “suckers”, she defines rebelliousness in its truest form. In terms of musicality, the song is yet another example of dark pop, a style Eloise is quite famous for. In other words, it’s not just the narrative but also the music that defy the conventions.
In her own words, Eloise creates a brand of “dark pop that always manages to be sinister somehow”. Eloïse has been lauded for her intense, sonorous vocals that further this cynical tone.
The unique singer has developed a musical style that also evokes an aesthetic appeal. She experiments with her own distinct sense of personal style, choosing to make bold artistic statements with her music. Check out the links below to hear more from this intriguing new songstress.
