Today sees the release of ‘Elevator Music’ by Nashville’s 7Chariot, and we just can’t stop playing it. This infectious offering from the 21 year-old artist (aka Claire Wilkinson), follows on from the success of former releases, ‘Ricochet’ and ‘Danger In Me’, but listen carefully and you’ll here the bittersweet memories of those early musical experiences.

“Elevator Music was written pretty specifically about my experience in a major label setting, and the lack of sincerity and sensitivity that seems so inextricably linked to a corporate approach to music.”

“Elevator Music was written pretty specifically about my experience in a major label setting, and the lack of sincerity and sensitivity that seems so inextricably linked to a corporate approach to music. I don’t think it’s always inherently bad or toxic,” she continues, “but I was so young when I signed my first record deal, and it took a massive toll on my mental health and my overall perception of my own writing.”

Wilkinson turned to music as a form of therapy, pouring her emotions into her debut EP, which is set for release in September this year. Creating an addictive of blend of electro-infused sky reaching pop, 7Chariot looks set to make a mark in the coming months. Watch this space.

‘Elevator Music’ is out now via Propeller Recordings.
