On Repeat: “Savior” – Elley Duhé

After the success of her collaboration with EDM producer/DJ Zedd (“Happy Now”), this Alabama native continues to shows off her vocal prowess on a bonus track off her album, Dragon Mentality.

“In the dead of the night, in the heart of my chest, you hide” Duhé sings in a raspy punchy pitch. “Savior” has a heavy melodic sound to it. Hip-hop-esque backbeats and diverse vocal runs make this song as powerful musically as it is lyrically.

Poetic lyrics shed light on the meaning of saviors. Duhé spoke about the song saying, “Savior is a song about the bonds that keep us together – we save each other every day… when we can help each other we must, when we can love each other we must, we will save us in the end.”
