Los Angeles artist/producer Elohim has released a brand new collaboration with Chicago-bred/newly LA-based producer Whethan titled “Sleepy Eyes.” Listen now HERE and watch the lyric video now HERE.
On writing the track, Elohim describes, “Ethan (Whethan) sent me a rough track he had made sampling my song ‘Bridge and The Wall.’ I am generally pretty particular about tracks I will work on… but there was something about this one. I fell in love with the feeling instantly and together we created a song that feels like butterflies in the summertime.” Additionally, Whethan comments, “Sleepy Eyes is the product of summery vibes mixed with synthy beats and Elohim’s vocals. Jam it loud!”
The release comes fresh off an exciting couple weeks including a mesmerizing Los Angeles headline at the Hammer Museum, which LA Weekly previewed with a stunning in-depth profile feature HERE.
Last week also saw Passion Pit release a brilliant cover of Elohim’s “All That Gold” (listen HERE), of which Elohim quickly responded with her own breathtaking cover of Passion Pit’s“Hideaway” (listen HERE).
Today’s news is only a precursor for big things to come this year including a Fall 2017 U.S. direct support tour with Australian artist Alison Wonderland. The nationwide tour will run alongside a series of festival plays slated at Lollapalooza, Moonrise, and CRSSD.
