Ottawa, Canada artist Ellie Gazdos released her new single, ‘Fiji’, on July 9. The “tropics-inspired” track will have you wishing you were boarding a flight to your dream vacation. “‘Fiji’ is a summery song that will have you dreaming about your next escape, too,” Gazdos explains.
Gazdos talks about the inspiration for her latest single: “When I wrote my tropics-inspired debut single ‘Fiji,’ I was in a really bad place at school, wanting to fit a certain mould and be popular,” she recalls. “I kind of lost myself in the process, so getting away to find me and my happiness again was the only thing on my mind.”
In her song, Gazdos longs for a place far from home, where she can just be herself. “I think everyone has wanted to run away and restart at some point. My biggest wish was to leave my life in Ottawa and start fresh on an island.”
