Listen to Billie Eilish's stripped-back new single, When The Party's Over
She'll be performing a handful of Australian shows with Florence + The Machine in January, before dropping her debut album next year.
Back when she first caught our attention with one of her earliest singles, Ocean Eyes, it was clear that the then-13-year-old Billie Eilish had a bright future ahead. However, we had her tipped to go down the route paved by names like Florence + The Machine and AURORA, mixing stripped-back, indie instrumentals with soaring vocals that would soon become famous. In the few years since Ocean Eyes, Eilish has proved herself as a whole different force. As exhibited on singles like Ocean Eyes and the Khalid-featuring Lovely, she's well and truly capable of tender moments marked with emotion. However, at the same time, tracks like her addictive break-out bellyache have showcased a more pop-centric side of Eilish that when played live, sees her transform into a more flavourful artist you can just see being a hit in both the commercial and underground worlds.
You should see me in a crown, her previously most recent song, continued to pave a lane for Eilish that was both experimental yet incredibly exciting, seemingly fitting her twisted, 'not your normal pop star' image a little better with its warping production and haunting feel. In saying that, her latest single when the party's over sees her take a step back, returning to the washed-out, piano-backed sound that captured our attention initially as her emotion-stricken voice swells over the single's stripped-back production that grows and grows as the song draws longer.
It arrives with the promise of a debut album in 2019, and news that she'll be performing a select few east-coast dates with Florence + The Machine in January next year – check out the dates below.
