ettie Begs for Karmic Justice in ‘Miserable Life’

Consistently releasing powerful new cuts for the last few years, relative newcomer ettie uses driving guitar lines and infectious lyrics to convey wholly relatable narratives. 

Two years after the release of her breakthrough EP ‘Manic Pixie Dream Girl’, ettie is storming the scene with her sparkling new revenge-fuelled cut ‘Miserable Life’. The track sits in the same sonic vein as Lauran Hibberd’s ‘Hole In The Head’ with thrumming percussion, dominating guitars and an overpoweringly emotive narrative. 

Full of passive-aggressive ne’er-do-well-wishings (“I hope you drop your keys down the drain // but you still see them through the cracks”) this newest release sees ettie vengefully bid for the universe to take revenge on someone who“deserve(s) much worse”. Delicately teetering in almost Avril Lavigne territory ‘Miserable Life’ screams casting aside heartache and demands to be heard. 

‘Miserable Life’ joins ettie’s discography and slots perfectly between slower tracks such as ‘Shoulder Blades’ and the punch-packing power of ‘I’m Sorry To My Exes’. 

Channelling millennium angst through raw, honest and tongue-in-cheek lyricism, ettie has all of the power of pop princess Lauran Hibberd, nerve of Paramore, and the ability to grasp a generation. Cathartic, original and eccentric, ettie is the queer artist we’ve been yearning for in our preppy punks playlists. 

Hopefully, the London-based artist has more to bring us for the rest of 2023.
