Party Nails, aka LA’s Elana Belle Carroll, premiered her dynamic new pop anthem “No Pressure” today on Noisey, who called the track “a fierce bit of pop that sounds kind of like if Carly Rae Jepsen fronted a New Wave band that made songs for John Hughes films.” “No Pressure” is available now on iTunes.
Party Nails is the pop incarnation of songwriter/performer Elana Belle Carroll. Elana’s journey to Party Nails has been a fascinating one: At the age of 11, she was performing original Americana in her small upstate New York town of Chatham. At 15, she was writing country music, and by 18 she’d moved to NYC to write and self produce her first solo project Vernous. After initially cultivating a dark electro sound for Vernous, Elana found herself in Los Angeles, headed down the opposite path, landing sonically in a celebratory indie-pop land somewhere between influences Haim, Charli XCX and Robyn.
