Eliza Edens - "I Needed You"

Brooklyn's Eliza Edens has released a single that doesn't truly sound like something that should be coming out of Brooklyn. "I Needed You" is a dreamy and breezy folk song that leans a little but into the world of folk pop. It stays just a little too rootsy for that, especially with the occasional twang on the guitar. It's a laid back song that is a showcase for Edens vocals without ever getting remotely showy. It's a laid back song that sounds like it was written on the porch of a country cabin with a crossover hit in mind. You're going to want to join us in keeping a close eye on Eliza Edens.

Eliza Edens says of her new single:

“'I Needed You' explores the liminal space that exists near the end of a relationship – when you’re vacillating between 'I need them' and 'I don’t need them.' It’s about trying to discover and center your own needs when sometimes it’s easier to lie to yourself and ignore them. It’s also about loving someone you know you can’t be with and perhaps not even knowing what you need and being okay with that. I initially wrote this song as a sad little breakup waltz, but when I showed it to my collaborators, they elevated it into a slow burn rocker that had me laughing by the end."

You can watch the video for "I Needed You" below. We'll Become the Flowers is due out October 14 and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Eliza Edens, check out the artist's website.
