Eliza Shaddad is a master of creating music that will leave you covered in goosebumps and her latest single 'Girls' is yet another example of her breathtaking vocals and moving lyricism. Released via Big Indie Records, 'Girls' is her first new song since the release of her impressive debut album Future a year ago.

'Girls' showcases Shaddad's mesmerising and confessional brand of songwriting. The song was written as an ode to one of her oldest friends. It's also a reflection of what it's like to navigate life when growing up in an all-girls school. On the track, she said, "“it lays bare how scary it was, standing on the sidelines, growing older, watching someone deal with some insanely hard human experiences, unable to find a way to connect with them about it.”

Shaddad is currently working towards releasing an EP, and 'Girls' is a sublime preview of what's to come.
