Elle Varner’s smoky contralto has really been growing on me, and even with this latest single “Refill”, it took me a couple of spins to really get into it and appreciate it.
I love what I am assuming is a banjo on the track, as that is definitely different. Also really love this video — it’s appropriate, cute, has a great story, and is shot really well. Elle’s voice takes center stage, and the video does well to tie the storyline of the song into the storyline of the video. I even would go so far to say that I love how the “country” sounding banjo plays into the fact that at the very beginning of the video, they are from a small town, cheering on to victory in the big city.
Elle Varner’s “Only Wanna Give It To U” came and went for me, but I think “Refill” has a bit more “meat on its bones” so to speak, and will get more replay value from me and my iTunes collection. What do you think of this song and video?
