Following her son’s birth, Ella Vos eventually realized she was experiencing postpartum depression, and ultimately she decided the best way to combat it was to begin writing. After the release of several well-received singles, the L.A. singer-songwriter’s anticipated debut full-length, the dreamy, electronic-pop-filled Words I Never Said (stream it below), dropped last November. “She isn’t just singing a collection of songs, she’s telling her story. From the first note of her hit song ‘White Noise’ that starts the album off, to the intimate lyrics of tracks like ‘Mother,’ Vos displays her unique perspective as both an emerging artist and a new mother,” said Huffington Post. “There’s an unparalleled depth that one would expect of a seasoned artist, which makes it all the more impressive from an artist debuting their first album.” Or as Earmilk so succinctly put it: Ella Vos (above, performing “White Noise”) is “the new force of ethereal synth-pop.” Now making her way across North America on her first headlining tour, she plays Rough Trade NYC on Friday night with London singer-songwriter Freya Ridings opening the show.
