SXSWfm Featured Song: “Playing for Keeps” by Elle King

Written by Rory Burbeck | Friday, Mar 8, 2013

Elle King’s voice soars throughout her song "Playing for Keeps" from The Elle King EP. It’s smooth, but it still has an edge. The way she sings adds so much power to the words. You can feel the passion. The instruments blend perfectly into the background, deliberately taking a backseat to Elle King’s voice. Overall, “Playing for Keeps” is FUN to listen to.
