Eccentric and brash, Eli Greeneyes has recently dropped his deeply confessional new single 21, a chaotic yet content exploration into getting older and losing control.

The moving single is accompanied by a scenic video clip, filmed in collaboration with the artist’s closest friends.  After a relocation back home due to COVID-19, the release of 21 feels poignant – a young person wondering what on earth is going to happen next.


Evocative of artists such as YUNGBLUD and DMAs, but also with clear influences from the classics – Oasis, ­The Verve – 21 has that instant-classic feel; like a song you already know, but can’t place.  It feels ready-made for summer, roadtrips, lazy afternoon swims and drinks in the backyard.

The clip for 21 feels as warm as the track itself, perfectly set in a deeply saturated lawn with a knowing nod towards the 90s influences behind the song with the use of a fisheye lens.


Mixed by Andy Lawson (Little Birdy, Eskimo Joe, Gyroscope) and mastered by William Bowden (Gotye, The Middle East, Miami Horror), 21 feels like a time capsule, something to look back on to remember what you were feeling during a particular time in your life.
