Spearheading the release of his forthcoming EP, burgeoning London artist House of EL (aka Kieron McIntosh) has released his first single of 2020 titled, Lazarus.

Originally a jazz trumpeter, House of EL furthered his musicality as he moved into producing and song-writing, quickly establishing his credibility working with artists such as Plan B, Paloma Faith and Chase and Status before emerging with his own original material. Carrying religious connotation, Lazarus is a majestic statement of music guided by House of EL’s bold yet sombre tinged vocals, illuminating his natural aptitude for thought-evoking lyricism.

Speaking on the track, House of EL explains; It all started from a weird orchestral sample I created at uni ages ago in a music pack I made for myself and then karma kid (who I worked with on this EP) helped me flip it. ‘Lazarus’ is a narrative lyrical abstraction, overcoming adversity and touches on ideas of humanity and hope, and is the title track of the EP”.
