Born to Sudanese and Scottish parents, Eliza Shaddad is a descendent of a long line of artists and poets dating back to the 1800’s. Eliza’s great great grandfather was James Paterson, one of the Glasgow Boys – a group of artists challenging the style and subject of late Victorian Scottish painting. After a previous EP that hit critical acclaim receiving airplay across BBC Radio 1, 2, 6Music, BBC Radio Scotland, XFM, Amazing Radio, KCRW, and strong support from The Sunday Times, The Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine, i-D Magazine, and The 405, Eliza Shaddad returns with follow up EP Run slated for release early 2016, the lead single of which, ‘Wars’, has just been revealed.

‘Wars’ builds on songs from the Waters EP (which has notched up nearly 400k streams on Spotify since its release in summer 2014) with a much fiercer overall sound. Whilst also harnessing elegant, nimble and bitter-sweet characteristics ‘Wars’ washes over full of conviction and flashes of vitriol. Mercury Music Prize nominated Chris Bond is once again at the helm of the production but is joined by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice/Foals) on mixing duties and John Davis (Blur/FKATwigs/Royal Blood) on mastering to give the record a grittier and more expansive sound.
