Flux review – Maddy Ellwanger – Carbon Copies track and video

We discovered Maddy Ellwanger through the music platform ReverbNation that enables artists and bands to promote their music direct to the music press and public.

They put a word out to their members asking which artist would like to be put forward  to be reviewed by us here at Flux.


Out of the hundreds of entries we received one that shone out to us was Maddy Ellwanger. Her music has a drive, passion and uniqueness that smacked us between the eyes and made us want to know and hear more. The influences cited on her own website are Marilyn Manson to Marina and the Diamonds, Jack White to Pierce the Veil which is quite a mix to spice up your musical palette.

Her latest track and video is ‘Carbon Copies’ a hook laden dream of a song backed by a suitably haunting video. I love the driving old-school synth loops that give the track a powerful pulsing heart. The vocal acrobatics are a fine thing to behold. The range is breath-taking and variety of tones quite extraordinary. It comes over to me like Lene Lovich, Ane Brun, Siouxsie Sioux mixed with a touch of Kate Bush throw in for good measure. The lyrics are playful but unnerving and give an underlying tension to the song.

To us all this adds up to an artist to admire and encourage. Have a watch and listen for yourself at the video below.
