🩷 Exuberant, groovy and bright; dive into the radiant energy of Ella Minehan’s ‘Read Receipts’! 🩷

This is the first release of her forthcoming debut EP set to arrive in 2025.

'Read Receipts' tackles a toxic ‘situationship’, choosing to walk away from someone who isn’t a good match and leaving them on ‘seen’; an important message in honouring one’s worth and choosing to put yourself first.

Paired with a feel-good, infectious pop beat and powerhouse vocals, this track is relatable and one that is easy to groove to.💃


‘Read Receipts’ arrives alongside a charismatic visualizer inspired by iconic chick flicks Clueless, Legally Blonde and Mean Girls. 🩰

The video, directed by Tom Grut, brings to life a girly, 2000s-esque barbie dream world, featuring 'Barbie' Ella in a toxic situationship, struggling to part with a relationship that no longer serves her. In this world of pink, ‘Ken’ (‘Spot’, as played by TikTok talent Taylor Roche).
