Fresh off the back of the thumping electro-pop banger ‘Houdini’, Ukulele Artist ‘Miss Elm’ steps back to her roots with ‘Pippi Long’, a song about accessing and nurturing your inner child. Listen that the January 10th in Formula Indie
More than that, Pippi Long – alongside its stunning music video – is a tribute to your universal mother Earth. During a rare window between lockdowns, Miss Elm aka Brisbane singer-songwriter Erin Harrington escaped to Tasmania. It was there that she discovered the missing piece to Pippi Long; a message about the beauty of our planet and the responsibility we have to look after it. (If you’ve seen magical Tasmania, you can understand where she’s coming from!). The beautiful natural landscapes also provided a backdrop for the video diary that spawned the music video.
Pippi Long is a hauntingly beautiful song with nostalgic sounds, layered ethereal vocals and blend of pop beats fused with the Baritone Ukulele. Some would say it’s folk pop at it’s best with sonic references to Aurora and Vera Blue.
