What many don’t understand about being in an abusive relationship is how all-consuming it is. Mind, body and soul; you feel trapped in an endless cycle of looking over your shoulder or questioning your own feelings. It’s scarily easy to find yourself a part of something that disguises itself as love, but chips away at your soul day after day.
For Brooklyn-based experimental artist and advocate Elliot Lee, their music centers around advocacy for those who feel defenseless. They give power back to the voiceless, and encourage them to fight back against their oppressors. Their latest single, Mess Boy details their experience with the nauseating throws of abuse. With gritty spirit and dark moxie, the track charges forward with a blend of electronica and rock & roll. The spunky Elliot Lee is no stranger to intoxicating and emotional tracks evident from the visceral storytelling laced with each one. They don’t hold a thing back, and why would we want them to? They see us, even when we may feel small.
