Raised in the seaside commuter town of Southend, her songs draw from the rotating cast of bizarre, lonely characters that exist within suburbia — crafting an indie-meets-baroque-pop sound that melds witty lyricism with the strangeness of modern life. Ellie Bleach has a penchant for nostalgia. Inspired by leading female songwriters of the 90s, from Fiona Apple and PJ Harvey to Alanis Morrissette, Ellie Bleach’s charming facade and razor-sharp satire harbours a biting cynicism that lingers restlessly in the wings.
Since releasing her debut single ‘Leave Me Alone’ in 2018, the songwriter has supported the likes of Kate Nash, Famous, The Orielles and Brad Stank, and received airplay from BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, 6Music’s Steve Lamacq and Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson. She's appeared on ‘One To Watch’ lists from both Gigwise and Dork Magazine.
