Fresh from her recent single ‘Talk Deep’ which Popjustice hailed as “Song Of The Week by about half a mile” and also hit triple j’s Most Played list, the 21-year old Australian pop maverick E^ST (aka Mel Bester) shares the follow-up ‘Flight Path’. The two tracks provide a taster of her full-length debut album ‘I’m Doing It’, which will be released in 2020. She’s also set to announce some key live shows in the New Year.
‘Flight Path’ was crafted with her long-term collaborator Jim Eliot (Halsey, Ellie Goulding). “‘Flight Path’ is a bittersweet song that tells the story of going from being close and intimate with someone, to being complete strangers,” notes E^ST. “It touches on the odd feeling of being alone again and all the possibilities that come with that.”
With three EPs and a varied collection of singles under her belt, E^ST is writing her own trajectory. Her early career highlights include the global single ‘Life Goes On’ (which earned the attention of Paper, the Evening Standard and the Sunday Times, and featured in triple j’s Hottest 100), the breakout single ‘I Don’t Lack Imagination’ and the bold empowerment anthem ‘Blowjob’, which was praised by Nylon.
