Elena Flury Shares Soulful Pop Gem ‘Say No’

Post Author: Aidan Grant

London based singer-songwriter Elena Flury, has a unique talent for bringing vintage sounds and styles into the 21st century. She has immersed herself in the capitals vibrant Neo-Soul and Jazz scene that’s emerged over the past few years.

Steadily building a following around London with her live performances, this year Elena took the step to self-releasing her first two singles. For the summer, she returns with a smooth piece of rhodes-led neo-soul in the form of “Say No”. Drawing on a multitude of influences, it’s a gloriously instrumental piece, with a playful chorus hook that’s perfectly suited for the summer months, it’s a slight departure from her usual neo-soul sound. Instead Elena takes a more upbeat, pop-centric approach to the track, with her vocal sitting softly amongst the groove-rich instrumentation.

Say No talks about the beginning stages of a relationship; the protagonist has a hard time fully engaging in it, instinctively pushing the other person away but at the same time is unable to resist how good it feels.

Elena states:

It’s that phase where you’re used to not being with anyone and at the same time, already don’t want to be without the other person any more.
