Elle King – Under the Influence [Official Music Video]


Elle King has premiered the official music video for the next single from her debut studio album Love Stuff

First launched as a US countdown single back in December 2014, Under the Influence will be released on 6 May as the follow up to the rock singer’s transatlantic smash Ex’s and Oh’s which made a belated UK Top 20 chart entry earlier this year and ushered her full length debut in to the upper reaches of the UK album chart.

Both tracks were co-written by the King with producer Dave Bassett and her expressively raw and soul-punching vocals are as impressive as ever on this tale about being caught up in an addictive relationship with a wrong ‘un, pitted against a cinematic arrangement of orchestral strings and increasingly amplified and boisterous percussion.

The song’s video is brilliant – an inventive, role-reversing, 007-meets-Team America-themed piece of animation, which pits a ballsy, blonde femme fatale against a maniacal bad guy and a suave fella, both of whom are trying to pull one over on her. Needless to say, neither are a match for our heroine.
