Ellen Krauss – “On the Bus” music video
“So when I see you on the bus I’ll be drunk as f*ck. So I don’t have to look at your face. And when I see you in the crowd, I’ll be acting out so I won’t give my feelings away. And when I see you on the train I won’t show you pain ‘cause you don’t even think of me, babe. When I see you at the bar, I won’t show you my scars. I won’t give my feelings away.” – lyrics
‘On the Bus’ tells an interesting tale of an insecure young woman who has an adoring crush on a guy who she rides public transportation with or see in crowded places.
Apparently, she would rather die than to let him see her commuting or chilling by herself. Therefore, she oftentimes asks people to chat with her so it appears that she has company.
Even though she wants to be safe than sorry, she knows sooner or later, she has to face her fear, which is looking at his face.
Ellen Krauss received praise from Carly Rae Jepsen, Max Martin, and Laleh when she was awarded Rookie Artist of the Year at the Denniz Pop Awards in Sweden.
Her debut single, “The One I Love”, has already racked up over 1M global streams since its release in April.
Also, it was added to over 1,500 playlists so far, including Spotify’s New Music Friday (Sweden).
Ellen Krauss spent her youth writing songs in her room at home in Stockholm and in South Africa where her family occasionally lived.
She draws inspiration from diverse artists such as Ed Sheeran, King Princess, Dire Straits, and Bruce Springsteen.
She is a playful, charismatic, and emotional storyteller who uses her songwriting to challenge the norms that today’s youth is fighting.
Also, she is outspoken about LGBTQ equality, women’s rights, and pushes back against the traditional social structures that a young girl should fit into.
