ELIO has shared her latest single ‘Read The Room’

It comes ahead of a support run with Charli XCX in Europe.

ELIO has shared her latest single ‘Read The Room’.

Speaking about the track, she explains: “As a female artist making music, going into sessions with predominantly male producers can be a real hit or miss. I’ve had so many times where I’ve walked in a room to write a song and a producer has demeaned my writing or production skills, it’s kind of something that artists like myself have learned to expect – which is extremely unfortunate.

“Read the Room is about one particular session with a producer who was a walking personification of main character syndrome (in all the worst ways). Sadly, this is seen in every industry and day to day life for a lot of women and LGBTQ+ people. We are told to be reserved, to behave, to fit into the mold of what society expects us to be – ‘Read the room’ is my way of owning that narrative.”

The track comes ahead of a support slot for Charli XCX over the European dates of her worldwide tour, including stops in Paris, Brussels, Utrecht, Berlin, Cologne, Milan and Madrid.
