Eleanor Kingston is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter who welcomes her listeners into the madness of her mind. Eleanor’s music, a mindful blend of Bedroom Pop’s fast-paced production and Indie-Pop’s lyrical universe, confronts the inner-battles of loneliness and anxiety while also spotlighting the importance of self-trust and personal empowerment. Eleanor’s honesty creates a much-needed space for listeners to relate and use music as a lens for their own self-reflection. This listener-relatability has garnered the attention of both Asylum Records and HitMaker Music Group, who are now working with the up-and-coming artist on her latest single. Now, Eleanor Kingston is a true force to be reckoned with as she charges towards her debut EP release: Great Kind of Madness.
Among the more technical aspects of Eleanor’s music are her wide-ranging lyricism and relatable tone as a singer. Eleanor’s lyrical profile resembles that of Halsey, Lorde, and Lana Del Rey -- a mental rollercoaster of the thoughts that rage through her brain 24-7. Even as a young artist, Eleanor captures the emotional complexities of darkness, social pressure, and personal redemption just as the Indie-Pop sensations before her. With this unwavering lyrical identity as a foundation, Eleanor capitalizes on pairing her voice with top-quality sound engineering to create a scene of dramatic emotional swells.
Gearing up to drop her forthcoming EP, Eleanor Kingston comes back into the music scene with a fiery new single and music video, ‘Meaningless’. Eleanor sings about the pressures of being a teenage girl in the digital age of beauty standards, fake friendships, and the constant pursuit of feeling “worthy enough”. She spotlights the struggle to feel content while also participating in self-deprecating behavior because sometimes it's easier to feel unhappy than to confront your inner demons. As both a musician and a creative director, Eleanor brings her originality and her imagination alive in the ‘Meaningless’ music video: “The simulation represents this mad world of external ideologies that are constantly forced upon us: who to be, how to act, and what to do next. No matter what I do to feel happy, society tells me that I am not good enough. In the video, even when the “experimenters” change my appearance, I am still left feeling damaged on the inside.”
