An artist growing with each release and as one of Australia’s finest talents, Elaskia is destined to have her name in the lights. With great success in her song writing, Elaskia’s debut single ‘Calling Out My Name’ was featured in the Netflix series ‘Dynasty’ as well as ‘Marvel’s Runaways. Back with dance-pop infused new single ‘Better’, the new release was written during the last Australian Lockdown.
Sharing her thoughts on the exceptional new track, Elaskia explains, “I wrote this about realising your own worth even when someone else doesn’t. I think some people confuse self-worth with being selfish and this is the exact opposite of that. It’s about knowing what you deserve and not being afraid to stand up for that.”
Like the rest of the world, the Lockdown affected Elaskia and her close friends. Adding to this, the songwriter shares, “During that time I found that a few of them were experiencing relationships and situations where they felt stuck and almost like they had to settle where they were because nothing else was happening. It was really sad to see that happen to people I think the world of, and I guess that’s what initially inspired me to write ‘Better’. I really feel like no matter what situation you are in (even when it’s extremely difficult) you should never feel like you have to settle for something that doesn’t feel right to you or make you feel good enough. It’s about being okay on your own and having that self-validation and self-worth even when others don’t give it to you.”
