After her debut EP, Waters, that hit critical acclaim receiving airplay across BBC Radio 1, 2, 6Music, BBC Radio Scotland, XFM, Amazing Radio, KCRW, and strong support from The Sunday Times, The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, i-D Magazine, and The 405, Eliza Shaddad returns with her follow up EP ‘Run’. 

The differences between the Waters EP and Eliza's new EP could not be starker. Any prettiness, however sparse, we had on the London-based Scots-Sudanese singer's debut EP has been replaced a whole lot of grit and dirt, we can hear this in Shaddad's voice which sounds like it's been given freedom to roam and prowl. 

Whilst also harnessing elegant, nimble and bitter-sweet characteristics, turbulent ‘Run’ washes over full of conviction and flashes of vitriol as well as exciting fans of things to come for her debut album.
