Single review: “Mantra” – Eleanor Kingston

Genre-blending songstress Eleanor Kingston is back with another beautiful alternative banger in Mantra.

According to Eleanor, “‘Mantra’ is a high vibe song about manifesting your destiny, being yourself unapologetically, and not tolerating nonsense from anyone. In collaboration with my longtime producer, Jared Evan, we created the boom bap inspired, alternative record fusing hard-hitting, vintage drums with jazzy saxophone.”

As far as we’re concerned, this is one of Eleanor’s best tracks to date. It blends alternative pop melodies with cutting, in your face lyrics about taking on life your own way. There’s an ethereal vibe to Eleanor’s voice that really makes this track stand out and stick in your head. It manages to be inspiring without trying too hard; that’s the beauty in the track; it’s lowkey but still up-lifting.

Having already had support from the likes of Lyrical Lemonade, Daily Chiefers, Early Rising, Fashionably Early, Ones To Watch, and Sheesh Media, there’s no doubt that Mantra stamps Eleanor’s name firmly in the ones to watch for 2023 category.

Mantra is a track you’ll be adding to your daily playlist after just one listen, it’s an absoutle empowerment anthem and exactly what you need in your life this year. Eleanor Kingston is a name you’ll soon be seeing everywhere, mark our words!
