about ela ep


“Shadow Love” is a poignant and evocative pop-ballad about love that delves deep into the complexities of mixed signals in relationships. With soul-stirring lyrics and a captivating melodies, this song explores the dynamic between two lovers—one who gives undiluted love and another who filters her affection, creating a constant interplay of light and shadow in their relationship.

The protagonist, a lover man with a heart of transparency, finds himself

entangled in a web of mixed signals as his partner’s actions fluctuate between

giving and withholding love. Despite the confusion and pain caused by her

erratic behavior, he remains steadfast in his affection for her.

Using the metaphor of love as light, the song vividly portrays the man as a

transparent glass through which love flows freely, while his partner is

depicted as a partially translucent glass, obstructing the passage of love with

jealousy, insecurities, secrets, dishonesty, selfishness and gaslighting. These

shadows cast over their love, giving rise to the title, “Shadow Love.”

Ultimately, “Shadow Love” is a raw and emotional portrayal of love’s defects

and battles, reminding listeners of the importance of transparency and

honesty in relationships.
