Ellis Berry is a British singer songwriter from Hampshire and ‘New Friend’ is the second track that he
has released from his EP ‘Cabin Fever’.
His work is similar sounding to Ed Sheeran and but with an electro-funk feel to it, pulling influences from Mark Ronson. This track is definitely not something I would normally listen to, but it is a welcomed change.
‘New Friend’ has an upbeat, danceable rhythm that makes it quite catchy. Berry bridges the gap between rap and singing which is makes for
an interesting listening experience. It is the sort of song I could definitely hear remixed and played on the dancefloors of clubs up and down the country.
Despite being relatively new to the music industry, Ellis has provided us with a feel-good tune which shows off his talents. Berry’s upcoming Ep is out in October, so keep an eye out for it.
