Elle Shares Video For “Forever After”
Singer/songwriter Elle Graham, the artist behind Woodes, has shared her brooding new single “Forever After,” along with a video. Directed by Nick Mckk, the visual companion takes her fans on an adventurous hike through, The Grampians, one of Australia’s most renowned national parks, exploring the wilderness, mountains, and greenery. “Forever After” is charming, wistful, and vulnerable as Graham’s vocals take one on a journey through a personal relationship to discovering love after loss and trials of grieving. Woodes music creates a universe with each release that intertwine her love for music, visual art, fashion, and beyond. “Forever After” is now available on all digital platforms here.
Elle shares, “I wrote ‘Forever After’ about love and the process of moving on, alongside grief. I started writing this at the start of 2022, after the breakdown of a relationship.
