Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Elia Saldana’s ep is a mysterious and beguiling listen. She appears looking like a vampire on the backcover, face smeared with black substance and in a white dress.

The spooky opener As Many Tears As The Gun is haunted like Hannah Fury and as Gothic as can be.

Home sees Rachel Laurence’s piano dominate as Saldana ruches new heights vocally. The song reminds me of P.J Harvey.

Elia Saldana is a new, very cool acquaintance she is hard to pinpoint and capable of great artistic feats. She has a slightly scary side that should separate her from the pack. Clearly she’s destined for great things.
