“Masquerade” by Anastasia Elliot

Anastasia Elliot dropped “Masquerade” on August 10, 2022 and we are absolutely obsessed! If you’re looking for something fresh and upbeat but at the same time sexy and dark, this is the song for you. It has everything you could ask for and more.

“Masquerade” is full of captivating darkness. It’s edgy and sexy, while there is a softness to Elliot’s voice just before the beat drops but then you’re thrust into a flashy chorus with a standard 4-4 beat. Those downbeats are strong and just bring another layer of fun and movement to the chorus. 

The music video is a psychedelic masterpiece with odes to the inauthenticity of society as a whole. Too often we all fall into this pattern of hiding behind a mask. We keep it up in a never-ending “masquerade” ball of sorts. And that’s just it–this is a plea to everyone to be authentic. It’s a song that creates a safe space (and a fun one!) to be who you really are and that is absolutely beautiful.

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Anastasia Elliot has worked relentlessly building the next phase of her plan. This plan includes the release of new music and videos as well as scheduling live shows and tours. The artist has done many public speaking events with high schools, colleges, and corporations focusing on mental illness and healing trauma. She also headlined a benefit show with The Great Khalid Foundation for the families of the victims of the Walmart massacre in El Paso, Texas. Anastasia Elliot continues to do amazing things.
