Elaine Mai addresses grief with elegiac electronic song ‘The Colour Of The Night’

Elaine Mai follows up her nostalgic summer haze track from last year – ‘Enniscrone’ with ‘The Colour Of The Night’, the lead track off the EP off the same name.

The track is a song about personal grief shaded through an elegiac electronic production that offers light in the dark through strings and voice.

Elaine says:

‘Over the last few years, I have encountered close personal grief for the first time and this track is about that experience. The melody and movement in the strings are a musical representation of the journey from sorrow and despair to acceptance and hope. Although the person you loved is gone, there is joy in their memory, solace in the time that was shared together and ‘The Colour of the Night’ captures that for me.’

The song is out tomorrow digitally.
