New Single from Uppbeatt featuring Elle Lexxa

What happens when a 2020 E boy meets a 1800s TikTok star? Internet Magic.

A silky smooth pop belter with an edge that will place you inside of your own coming of age film. Uppbeat and Elle met earlier in the year via TikTok and quickly developed a close working relationship. ‘Cigarettes’ is about sitting on the steps after a night out when you’re young, deeply in love and trying to prove your feelings to that person. This fusion of zany internet personalities welcomes you into a world of enchantment and alt bliss. Engineered by musical wizard Stuart Hawkes responsible for music from the likes of Mura Masa, Charli XCX and Ed Sheeran.

Uppbeat first came across Elle on TikTok and says, “I was blown away by how developed and striking her aesthetic was and when I found her music I instantly became a fan.

We decided to work on some records and we came up with ‘Cigarette’s. We then planned to meet in London and work on the record more and we shot a homemade music video while we were there.”
