Eloise Viola Rises From Vulnerability to Resilience in Her New “Delicate” Single

Eloise Viola (@eloiseviola) is an independent singer-songwriter and vocal powerhouse based in London, England. Not too long ago, she released a resilient new electro-synth-pop single, “Delicate.”

“This song is so important to me because its creation inspired me to keep going. It’s a message to myself. I know what I’m like – when something bad happens I just retreat immediately, and now because I know myself so well, I can see that happening and it’s a reminder that you have to tell people when you’re feeling delicate.” – Eloise Viola explained

The featherlight, Robyn-esque “Delicate” holds a special place in Eloise Viola’s heart. Written during a particularly low point, the song helped her see sense. Created during writing trips to LA and Nashville, Eloise questioned whether the grind of the music industry was worth it. She was asking herself “At what point is resilience just stupidity?” After laying down these thoughts in “Delicate,” she returned feeling rejuvenated, reflected in its bright synth-pop chorus of sparkling clarity.

“Delicate” will be featured on Eloise’s upcoming debut album, “Glasshouse,” available on May 10th, 2024. The project is a passionate pop record that shares Eloise’s messages of self-love, self-empowerment, and hard-won independent strength. Written and created in LA, Nashville, and London, its 13 songs – influenced by the likes of Griff, Becky Hill, and Holly Humberstone – chart Eloise Viola’s journey from battles with body issues, mental health, and loss of confidence, through to the strong, powerful woman she is today, keen to pass on what she’s learned along the way.

As Glasshouse began to take shape, Eloise found the songs and started to build a story that followed a journey of her healing. Songs like bluesy “999” and soaring “Lifetime” showcase some of the darker sides of that journey.

“You can’t have the ups without the downs,” Eloise stated. “It’s about telling the story. I guess back then I did need saving. I’d had difficulties with eating and control around eating, and obsessive calorie counting, and that had come to a head at University.”

The disco-y title track, “Glasshouse,” tackles her issues with disordered eating and was inspired by a specific article celebrating the return of heroin chic. This ’90s fashion trend seemed to celebrate painfully skinny bodies.

“It felt like such a metaphor for the album – the transparency and vulnerability,” Eloise stated. “Glass is strong and see-through, but can also be fragile. The house is this idea that your mind and your body are your home and you need to treat it kindly, and delicately.”

The release of Glasshouse will also be accompanied by a multi-episode podcast Glasshouse: Laid Bare, allowing Eloise to explore the themes on the album in-depth for her fans. In this documentary-style podcast, Eloise shares the unfiltered stories behind how these songs marked her lowest points and the lessons that lifted her onto a path to healing, self-empowerment, and self-love. It’s heart-warming and insightful and you can laugh along with her honest recollection of the ups and downs of her personal life and career.

“I’m done with crying.”

Using interviews with the writers and producers of the album across the Atlantic, which include a multi-platinum songwriter and fellow independent artists, and by speaking to an eating disorder specialist, counselor, and celebrity stylist, Eloise reveals what it’s really like behind the curtain as an independent artist, and to be a woman in her twenties in our society. The podcast will be released along with the album in May.

Eloise continues to shine off the record through her live performances, which have recently seen her tour across Europe with Anastacia and perform at several Pride events including the main stage at Pride London.

With “Glasshouse,” Eloise is projecting from the heart a crystal-clear vision of honest healing through a shimmering glisten of upbeat pop. The inclusive captivating record is sure to inspire and reinvigorate listeners around the world in 2024.
