West Dublin pop artist set to release upbeat new single this month

by Rachel Darcy

Dublin-born alternative pop artist ELLYD is set to release her new melodic sing-a-long anthem ‘On My Way’ on September 25th.

Following on from the success of her last single, ‘Ghosts‘, which reached number 7 in the Irish iTunes charts, ELLYD – the stage name of West Dublin’s Elaine Walsh – is offering a more upbeat track with her latest release, which builds towards a mesmeric finale.

Speaking about the new single, ELLYD said the song is about working through internal conflicts.

She said: “There are times I bury my head in the sand ignoring important things that I shouldn’t and expect that they’ll just magically sort themselves out. This song is about that and also about hoping that the world will wait for me until I drag my head out and catch up.”

“It’s been a while since I released anything so I’m really excited about putting this new single out.

“The support I’ve received over the last few years has been really heart-warming and I hope people like this one too.”

ELLYD has toured throughout Ireland and Europe playing festivals including Electric Picnic and Indiependence, as well as other venues across the country including Vicar Street, The Olympia and Whelans.
