Damon Mitchell Dives Into A Story of Heartbreak, Reflecting & Angst In EP Elise

30 Mar

From the opening of the EP with the angst track Heist to the heartbreak song titled Elise, Mitchell showcases his range and skill of storytelling exceptionally well in this collection of work. With a 60s/70s vibe, he is able to hone in on the overlooked nuances of characters within his songs. Instrumentally, it has the violin sounds effortlessly accompanying the guitar and harmonica within the song. Lyrics such as “did you have to go, will I ever know?” showcase questions that we may have asked ourselves at some point in our life looking back on shut doors. It brings up to the surface how the human mind self doubts years later and goes back as well. With the mentioning and symbolic references heavily pointing out the license plate in the narrative, it leaves the listener with a new meaning to something that could be overlooked. Damon Mitchell, keep on finding the details that everyone overlooks and incorporating it in your music, its bonafide genius.
