We’ve covered Kings Elliot twice before, but this London-via-Switzerland newcomer makes it impossible to not appreciate her emotive discography. Having battled borderline personality disorder and anxiety, Kings Elliot channels her frustrations into music, which is to our benefit. Without further ado, we’re pleased to present Kings Elliot’s touching new single, “Bitter Tonic.”

Kings Elliot really doesn’t hold back when it comes to her revealing songwriting–especially in “Bitter Tonic.” As the gifted talent puts her saboteur self on blast, “Bitter Tonic” treats us to heart wrenching strings and the most delicate piano arrangement. If you’ve been holding yourself back in any way, please allow Kings Elliot to relieve that pressure with “Bitter Tonic.”

On “Bitter Tonic,” Kings Elliot explained,

“‘Bitter Tonic’ is about self-sabotage, self-hatred, self-destruction… all the things I’ve always felt too uncomfortable to talk about. ‘The bitter tonic is mine’ is the idea of desperately clinging onto my pain, defiantly refusing any help, because at my lowest it’s all I possess, all I have control over.”
