Elles could not be more be more delighted and says, “Two years ago I sat in the Gods at The Hackney Empire watching the awards and I thought to myself: one day I want to be playing on that AMA stage. Performing at the Troxy, in front of this wonderful community, has been the most incredible experience and to come away with Song of the Year — I’m utterly stunned! There were so many incredible people involved in the making and releasing of the record — I’m so grateful to you all. I do need to give a special HUGE shout-out to Dan Auerbach and Bobby Wood, my co-writers. I am in awe of your genius — thank you for helping me bring this song to life!”
