Rhode Island’s Elisa Coia has one of those voices that stands on its own. Hers is not your regular, run-of-the-mill voice. When describing Coia’s vocals words like big, breathtaking and silky all come to mind. There are touches of subtle sweetness, unique phrasing and a surprising boldness to her style that makes her hard to ignore. With her debut EP, These Days, almost ready to be released to the world, it’s the perfect time to get to know this intriguing Bounce-Worthy newcomer.
Elisa has blessed soul and pop lovers with two tracks in a short amount of time. Her debut single, the synth-heavy, luscious “This Human Ache,” was accompanied by a dreamy visual that served to arouse more curiosity about the singer-songwriter. Cutting from shots of Coia in a grand, opulent garden to a lounge room circa the ‘70s or ‘80s, this video hints at the quirkiness bubbling away in this young artist. When Coia starts breaking down dance moves in high-waisted flares and smashing watermelons, it’s apparent that this is just the tip of the iceberg for her left field creativity.
