23-year-old Finland native Erika Sirola has announced her signing to Elektra Records with the release of her debut single, “End Of The Day.” The stunning, bittersweet new track can be heard now below.
Opening in stark simplicity then slowly building to a glorious whirlwind of fast and frantic beats, “End Of The Day” tilts heartbreak into something strangely sublime. The single is accompanied by a captivating performance video directed by Nico Paolillo, which can be seen now below. In addition to being a longtime piano player, guitarist, and clothing designer, Erika is also a talented visual artist and designed the accompanying mixed-media single art.
“I’m thrilled to finally announce my signing with Elektra and get my music out into the world – I couldn’t have asked for a better team to back my art,” adds Erika. “I wrote ‘End Of The Day’ at a time when I felt like I couldn’t hold onto anything or grow roots anywhere. I love how you feel like the song’s ending, then it launches into this very grandiose ambient soundscape.”
