Elaskia – “Can’t Help Loving You”

Australian singer-songwriter Elaskia‘s fourth (and latest) single is a passionate and affectionate ballad called “I Can’t Help Loving You”. The piano-guided song finds the artist embracing vulnerability as she sings about the struggles of leaving a toxic relationship. She notes, “I wrote this song after someone really let me down. They really promised a lot more than they were willing to give, and it felt like they went from being this major part of my life to literally dropping off the face of the earth. I guess the part that really frustrated me was that even though I felt extremely hurt I didn’t hate them and at the end of the day I still think the world of them, but some relationships aren’t meant to stay close and it can be a really scary thing accepting that and letting go”.
