Let's Get Lost - Elina Filice by Red Vine Records

Singer/songwriter/spoken word artist Elina Filice is set to release a new single in celebration of Pride Month (June), “Let's Get Lost” on June 11. The dance-pop anthem celebrates the coming out experience, and getting lost to find yourself. Elina hopes the song can help those struggling to come to terms with who they are, as well as all of those on the lifelong journey away from shame and into love and pride. The song departs slightly from Elina’s usual sound into a world of colorful synth-pop, driven by an irresistible disco groove. Rhythmic guitars, driving synths, and a percussive beat meet powerful lyrics about self-discovery.
