Dark Light

Today we’d like to take you to a small Kent town, along the commuting railroad that takes you in Charing Cross, in East London. Where Elle Watson, a very young, supremely gifted individual female singer-songwriter hails and roams from when she’s not in Shoreditch or Paris’ red light district taking selfies in front of bright coloured neon lights for a shared moment on Instagram.
