“‘Let Me Down’ is about wishing a dude would stop stringing me along and just cut it off. If guys would just let me know when they weren’t feeling it, I wouldn’t have to think about them anymore or wonder what I did wrong and life would be breezy,” Bay Area artist Lily Elise said in an e-mail.
Elise is joined by MADE IN LA on the track.
If her voice sounds familiar, it’s because she’s been featured on tracks with Dillon Francis, Twin Shadow, Felix Cartal, Frenship and more. ‘I Don’t Know Why’, from her EP OLIVER, a chronicle of a failed relationship, reached #14 on Spotify’s Viral Charts.

Lily Elise has shared the video for the title track from her EP Taken.
The video is an up close and personal look at the singer/songwriter. Elise’s songs were fueled by a messy break-up.
“’Taken’ is the breakup song of the EP,” she shared in a statement. “Growing up, my grandma always said to me, ‘The space for what you want, is being taken by what you settled for.’ What I’ve always wanted, with a deep sense of certainty, is to share my music and my voice with the world.”
Elise worked with Felix Snow (Sza, Gallant, Nicole Sherzinger), Dan Nigro (Sky Ferreira, Aluna George, Twin Shadow), Mighty Mike (Dojo, Sirah, Kelly Clarkson), Erik Belz & Danny Score (Jez Dior) to name just a few. Her first single ‘Generator’, released in November 2014, hit #1 on the Twitter Hype Chart.
“The songs on Taken are a culmination of two years of hard work,” Elise said. They tell a story of struggling to find myself in the midst of an unknown career path and a destructive relationship, from beginning to end.”
