Recorded in the same studio in remote Devon where she worked on her Run & Waters EPs with Mercury-nominated longtime collaborator Chris Bond, Eliza Shaddad’s highly anticipated debut long player Future was two years in the making and is a deeply candid look into the unique songwriting mind of its creator. “It was slow and painful going,” says Eliza, “but we got there, and these ten songs detail everything I was experiencing at the time – the escape, joy, sadness, guilt, nostalgia, and then the doubt.” It’s a private and personal work, where each song is based around a highly-fleshed out psychological idea, making Future a sonic journal that fishes into the vast pools of her past and present to reveal a songwriting voice that’s unflinchingly honest, and fundamentally human in its everyday relatability.
Set on the bedrock of Eliza’s early folk and grunge influences, it revels in “flavours of trip-hop, West-Coast surf sounds, 80’s chorus, 90’s movie soundtracks, and all-out pop” while still managing to sound like a focused, devastatingly precise and cohesive body of work. Of the writing process Eliza says ‘I was listening to lots of Hole and Portishead at the time, and Baz Luhrman’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ soundtrack on repeat and just kept thinking how exciting and different and vital each track was and how I wanted to make something as varied and direct.’
Future is a sound honed by a woman who has striven to reassert herself through multiple national identities, academic fields, and musical cultures, and Eliza Shaddad’s extraordinary fanfare couldn’t go to an artist more deserving. On debut LP Future she is asserting her true, richly diverse self-hood with startling, but wholly expected self-confidence.
