Eli is a new project from Melbourne artist/producer Luca Pascucci who is making a unique blend of alternative-dance music with energetic-club and hyper-pop/punk influences, which can be likened to a mix between Skin On Skin, jamesjamesjames, and Nia Archives.

Just a few weeks ago Luca announced he would be releasing his debut ep in August via Mammal Sounds Records. Along with that announcement also came the ep’s first single ‘Opening/Track ID’, which has since been met with much praise and attention from music fans and curators across the globe. 

Luca is excited to be giving us the next taste of that ep this week with ‘I Want To Feel Alright’, which he has co-written/produced with one of his high-school friends DoloRRes, a collaboration that he says has been on his wish-list for a while now.

Dolorres released his first EP when we were at high school together and it was always a huge inspiration for me. Since then I’d always wanted to make a track with him and now felt like as good a time as any.

It was so easy working together. We spent a few hours writing, smoking, producing, eating, recording, and it all came together quite seamlessly. I think you can hear how each of our musical tendencies creep their way in, kind of a perfect middle ground of where we were both at musically.

I like how the title and even the lyrics can be a little melancholic/reflective. The whole hook of the song is “I wanna feel alright”, but then it’s juxtaposed with this energetic beat. I like tricking people into hearing about real shit by giving them a cool beat to listen to first. Whoops.” ~ Eli

‘I Want To Feel Alright’ is available everywhere now via Mammal Sounds Records.
