Formerly known as Great Profile, Elsa Lester, the moniker of Lisa van Kampen, started releasing music in 2016. Her name stays in your head when you listen to the album Stress Relief. The tongue is witty and sharp, the music no-nonsens, slacker and rambunctious. She surprises as a young lady with a mature mind and quickly gained acclaim from 3voor12, The Daily Indie, Birp!, and The Revue. She already played at Le Mini Who last year and was the support act for Big Thief, YUNGBLUD, and Surf Curse.

Her first single Pretty Bad, Man off of her upcoming EP Dinner Party was released on June 1st. Dinner Party comes out on July 6th through cassette label Z Tapes.

Track Name: Pretty Bad, Man
I know I know I can be a bit much
But I don’t think that you should’ve gone back to the start
Suffocate me in my sleep again
Did you even know what I meant

My skin is cleared and I am cured
I’m getting ten hours of sleep at night
Hydrated and always stuffed but it ain’t over

I haven’t heard from you in three years
Did you know that I’m still waiting here
Remember when I went bad, oh so bad
Oh I just wanted to stare at you again and again

My skin is cleared and I am cured
I’m getting ten hours of sleep at night
Hydrated and always stuffed but it ain’t over
My skin is cleared and I am cured
I’m getting ten hours of sleep at night
Hydrated and always stuffed but it ain’t over
Oh it ain't over

I’m hopeless and no one can save me
But you’re a delight so could you help me
We’re holding hands in all of my stupid dreams
But you stole it all and you oh you know it
Track Name: Say No
Faking suicide, you're always on my mind
Said goodbye again to get back what I had
I’d put flowers on your grave, would you do the same
Let’s have our final dance, make out, and hold hands

So what if you say no

I gave you my heart but you tore it apart
If you don’t stop I will show them who you are
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do, so keep your hands off you
My other girl called me, but it’s okay ‘cuz I am free

So what if you say no
Track Name: The Princess and the Queen
I love you but I hate you too and I don't know what I would do without you, my dear
No shirt and no shoes too and you call me your girlfriend what am I doing

Call me again when I'm awake
Call me again when I'm awake

You'll find me on the floor of the bathroom, sober but drunk from the love that he's giving me
Lipstick stains on his shirt and no one wonders why I’m covered in mud

Call me again when I'm awake
Call me again when I'm awake
Call me again when I'm awake
Call me again when I'm awake
Track Name: Clueless Vibes
There's something on my mind
But I cannot keep it inside any longer
I feel a little clueless every time
You turn me down, I wanna say something
Never told you about my ways
Then how come I couldn't stay over
Biked home at seven a.m.
On Sunday, I guess we'll just pretend

'Cause

I wouldn't know, wouldn't know, wouldn't know what to say
I want you to know, you to know, you to know I'm too afraid
'Cause I don't know you anymore
No, I don't know you anymore

Thought about speaking again
But I couldn't muster the strength, it's no good
Did you wanna go through with it
Probably not, that's what you'd tell me
Everytime I looked in your eyes
It felt like I was slowly dying inside
Never could tell you lies
Then why did you never let me try

'Cause

I wouldn't know, wouldn't know, wouldn't know what to say
I want you to know, you to know, you to know I'm too afraid
'Cause I don't know you anymore
No, I don't know you anymore
Track Name: Somewhere
You’re like the soul in my ghost
Did you ever see me fall asleep alone
In a minute I’ll be gone
‘Cuz you’re no good no you’re scum
We were never ever one
Had to change my ways for you alone
You never beckoned me to come
Just forced it all and left it undone

Somewhere
It’s better
Somewhere

You make my heart feel like a joke
Whatever I'm doing, I’m so woke
You’re never ever on my side
Why am I the one who’s got to run and hide
You give me butterflies
Why do I keep changing my mind
You’re a handful but so am I
Ditch me at the lost and found

Somewhere
It’s better
Somewhere
Somewhere
It’s better
Somewhere

Somewhere
It’s better
Somewhere
