ELI HURTS RELEASES NEW SINGLE

THE BEST

LISTEN HERE / WATCH LYRIC VIDEO HERE

The project from songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Eli Hurts, has officially dropped his new single The Best today via Rude Records. This is his first release since signing to the label earlier this year. Listen here, and watch the lyric video here.

 

“I was really angry when I wrote this song. I’m glad I’m not this angry anymore,” shares Eli (real name Eli Hirsch) on the new track. “It sucks to be angry, it’s painful. But I guess it’s unavoidable. Looking back, I make it seem so dramatic. Definitely playing quite the victim in this one, But let’s be honest, it was equally my fault. It’s all good. Thanks for listening.”

With help from producer Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Fiona Apple, Adam Melchor), 2020-released debut EP Future Accountants of America, Unite exemplifies the blend of alternative, pop, punk, emo and synth music that has influenced Eli Hurts.

While on the road with former band courtship., Eli was working through “the big break up” and a recent diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. “But not the kind where you need things to be tidy in your space – the kind where you have obsessive thoughts,” he shares. Those obsessive thoughts quickly became scribbles in a notebook that eventually sparked the idea for Eli Hurts.

Influenced by a wide range of artists like My Chemical Romance, 100 gecs, Steven Sondheim, Smashing Pumpkins, Lil Peep and Weezer, Eli Hurts is set to put sometimes frantic and obsessive thoughts into music that is instantly relatable.

Fans can stream Eli’s catalogue, which includes his debut EP Future Accountants of America, Unite as well as recent singles TOO MUCH and Full of Life (Bella Says, f#%k it!) here.
