American newcomer Eleon is thrilled to announce the Australian release of his debut single, If It Ain’t Me, following the global success of the modern electro-soul track, set for release in Australia on April 27.
If It Ain’t Me is a heady track, evocative of the cool pop sounds of ZAYN, but it also harks back to a classic soul feel as well – and that’s what makes Eleon so unique. Those sultry vocals dip effortlessly in and out of skillful falsetto amongst a clever arrangement of dazzling guitar riffs, a pulsing synth, fizzy hi-hats, heavy hitting kicks and current trap-influenced production. It’s subtle, but those melodic hooks are undeniable. This unique track was produced by Eleon’s collaborator, genius musical enigma Kubla Kahn (Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo, Akon, Frank Ocean) and it has amassed a remarkable critical response worldwide with support from the likes of DJ Booth, Revolt, Hilly Dilly, aipate.com, KRXM Killjoy Radio and more.
There is little known about the mysterious man behind the project, but Eleon has offered a little insight into the making of If It Ain’t Me, saying, “I write to express what’s going on in my life and those around me. I’ve been into music for as long as I can remember – I wrote songs to deal with life growing up. If It Ain’t Me was created after meeting Kubla in the studio and he played that guitar riff. Immediately we vibed out and the song was born.”
With plenty of material set to drop across the globe in the near future, one thing is certain, the hype for Eleon is real – watch this space.

If falsetto-laden vocals are your thing, we suggest you hop on the ELEON bandwagon, because the LA-based singer’s debut, “If It Ain’t Me”, is a modern soul admirer’s dream. Though ELEON’s vocals are certainly the song’s cornerstone here, tantalizing guitar riffs and hat-heavy drums also shine – Hilly Dilly
