ellee ven calls her music “groovetonics”: it makes you move and lifts your mood. ellee ven just released a video called Underwater via her independent label Hot Sauce Records. “Underwater” is set to a mesmerizing drum and bass track, with black-and-white, sensual imagery throughout the three-minute and sixteen-second track. Dancing blindfolded, sitting on a beach by the ocean, and in a tango with a mismatched lover left to sink.
