Elle King has really started to make her mark on the music world. When you first listen to her music you’re not sure how to categorize her. She’s not quite pop. She’s not quite rock. And she’s even been getting play on country radio stations including The Highway on SiriusXM. That’s kind of been my introduction to her.
I think it’s pretty cool that she’s getting some love in the country world. There are definitely some country elements there. Her style is certainly not for all country fans, but that’s okay.
Here is her next single from the soundtrack from the upcoming new Ghostbusters movie.
Good Girls – Elle King
With the songs I’ve heard it seems that Elle has been a bit of a wild child through her life. She often sings about her outlook on life and her recognition that her style is not the most common, but she’s going to keep doing what she’s always been doing.
I respect that. She’s making the decisions that feel right to her and she’s not worried about what others are going to say. This song in particular has the theme of a woman that’s kind of giving up on the idea of being a good girl. She’s on her way to hell anyway so she’s going to keep living that way or at least living the way she wants to. And if that’s not okay with others she doesn’t really care.
I don’t know if this one will get play with country audiences, but it’s still pretty cool so I thought we should share it here on CML.
