A bold story of love and heartbreak, ‘Sick’ is another huge statement from Elle Exxe as she sends a clear message to cheaters everywhere. Elle punches with a stadium-sized Florence & The Machine-style chorus while writhing atop a seductive 80s-inspired synth line.
‘Sick’ follows the release of ‘Lately’, the pounding anti-ballad lead track from her forthcoming debut album Love Fuelled Hate. A record that explores the concept of love’s transition to hate, the album journeys through a gloriously twisted tale of flirtatious glamour and irresistible lust into the seedy depths of adulterous behaviour and its dramatic conclusion.
The release of Love Fuelled Hate through LX Records has now been moved to October 7th to meet the big international demand for the fast-rising Scottish star, which will be met with shows in America, where she will perform three dates in New York, and South Korea where she will play four dates in Hongdae, Seoul, all starting this month and running into October. She will also be performing at the Unsigned Music Awards at London’s Troxy on October 27th.
Elle Exxe has been championed by BBC Introducing, Kiss FM and also flown high in Music Week and Amazing Radio charts. Now also making big strides across the Atlantic, she’s been played on over 100 radio stations in North America, achieving notable CMJ chart success.
In the UK she’s played sold out shows across the capital and her Scottish homeland, while topping 2015 with the biggest headline show of her career at London’s KOKO as part of Club NME. As well as building her ever-growing international appeal with four shows at the taste making Canadian Music Week, Toronto and appearances at this year The Great Escape Festival and Liverpool Sound City.
