PREMIERE: Whack on some shades because Ellery Cohen’s new single is beaming with optimism

Native to Melbourne is pop-rock singer/songwriter Ellery Cohen, a multi-instrumentalist whose love affair with music stemmed from infancy when pots and pans were every child’s musical dream.

Cohen released his first five-track EP Songs I Wrote, Tears I Cried in mid 2014 to an overwhelmingly positive response, whilst 2015 saw the release of his single When I’m Not accompanied by regular gigging around Melbourne.

Cohen has since whipped up fresh new track Far Too Long and it’s straight-up shining with optimism, an infectious beat and catchy hooks.

Inspired by The Script and OneRepublic, Far Too Long conveys a message of positivity through Cohen’s honest vocals, emotional lyricism and an anthemic chorus.

Of the new track, Cohen says, “I think in our society, we tend to shy away from talking about our emotions and struggles, especially as men we are seen to be weak if we discuss our mental health.

Far Too Long breaks away from society’s perceptions and enforces the powerful message that it’s okay not to be okay.

The new track was mixed by world renowned producer Daniel Kelaart and is an epic display of Cohen’s compelling vocals and charming lyricism. Dramatic yet light hearted, the three minute track promises catchy hooks, upbeat guitar, and big, warm, boomy drums.

Already deemed a talent on the rise by industry veteran Molly Meldrum, it’s no question big things are yet to come from this inspirational young artist.

You can catch Ellery Cohen at The Workers Club in Fitzroy on January 6th for the launch of Far Too Long, with support from James Franklin and Grace King.
