Australian teen songwriter and artist E^ST (Mel Bester) is making waves with her new single 'Life Goes On'.
'Life Goes On' has already hit 1.5 million streams on Spotify and continues to grow.
'Life Goes On' came to life during a writing stint in the UK with producer Jim Elliot (Ellie Goulding, Foxes).
Above the pop hooks and moody indie-electronica and her skilful combination of sad words and happy music, it’s E^ST's voice that commands attention. There is a weightiness and resonance to it; and a space in which pain can percolate.
She put that to good use in her cover of The Verve’s 'Bittersweet Symphony' for triple j’s Like A Version, with its haunting detour into the trip-hop of Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’.
