Hawaii via Liverpool’s rising star Eli Smart shares the final taste of his upcoming EP “Aloha Soul”, with bonafide surf-rock smash “See Through”. Scuzzy guitar solos and Eli’s now trademark falsetto underpinned by an irresistibly jangly rhythm section that shuffles you straight back to memories of sunshine, this latest track solidifies Eli as one of the most exciting artists in his genre.

Built from his live show, where he has been cutting his teeth with some of the UKs most exciting artists, such as, Brooke Combe and Cassia, who he has toured with in the last month. “See Through” is instantly danceable & perfect to groove to. Speaking further, Eli adds: “See Through is a tune that my mate Luca and I wrote and recorded back home in my little studio on Kauai. I had the intro guitar riff floating around for a while as well as a bouncy groove and a melody and I brought it to my friend Luca and we wrote the tune around it together. The atmosphere of “See Through” is meant to capture a certain feeling of back home, having a laugh and getting involved in some funny situations.”

Working with the acclaimed producer of Arlo Parks, Gianluca Buccellati, has allowed Eli to explore and expand his authentic sound on the upcoming EP ‘Aloha Soul’,  a unique blend of Tropicana, timeless guitar pop and blue-eyed soul. Eli’s work remains impassioned and stirring, whilst preserving a swingy and high-spirited essence imbued with warmth. Earlier this year Eli shared two gorgeous singles “AM to PM”, and “B-Side” which was quickly adopted by Jack Saunders & Gilles Peterson. Most recent single “Cry At The Comedy”, a raucous  surf pop anthem has been a mainstay at late night BBC Radio 1, with Clara Amfo supporting heavily across the network.

Originally hailing from Kauai, where he was raised by a family of musicians and grew up on a diet of soul legends such as Gladys Knight, Jimi Hendrix, Prince and The Beatles, Eli has returned to the UK this year, and already taken it by storm.

Eli rose to prominence early last year with the release of his debut EP ‘Boonie Town’ in early 2021, four glorious tracks that showcased Smart’s irresistible, sun-dappled vision. From the gorgeously sweet bitter tang of lead track “Come Down” to the doo-wop swagger of “No Destination”; the twinkling falsetto croons on the irrepressibly lovestruck anthem-in-waiting “Highschool Steady” to last year’s “Cruella Deville”, which became a sleeper smash on radio and won him fans in the likes of Clara Amfo, Elton John, Greg James, Adele Roberts, Gemma Bradley and more.

Eli Smart’s ‘Aloha Soul’ is released November 25via Polydor.
