Elizabeth II’s New EP Brings a Breath of Fresh Air to Hard Rock Sound

ElizabethII

The electric blue hair isn’t the only bold aspect of artist Elizabeth II. In her new EP, Dark Chops,  she daringly combines a taste of heavy rock with her intricate guitar riffs while still encapsulating a softer element of pop rock.  The EP is set to come out on August 6th, and will be available on all streaming platforms. 

A Washington DC local, Elizabeth began performing her innovative music in 2017 with a live band. She brings in a younger edge to the world of hard rock and intricate guitar solos. Pulling from a childhood filled with rock music from both the 70s and the 90s, Elizabeth ii incorporates  bold progressions with distinctive riffs in the EP.

 “I wanted to give DC something different, something rock, something catchy, and something weird,” she said discussing the diversity within the EP. If you are looking for a faster paced and dark rock piece “Devastation,” fits the criteria, while songs like “Fall this far,” bring in a smoother mix of pop rock.

Though the spectrum of singles on the EP is vast, all are promising and none disappoint. “I usually consider myself to be an overly technical guitar player, so it surprised me when I was able to turn that piece of my brain off when I was writing very simple yet unconventional and catchy rock songs,” said Elizabeth discussing her experience creating the EP. Bringing her own unique style merging the differing music worlds of pop and hard rock, this release from Elizabeth ii is truly both exciting and unique.
