Today’s news falls in succession with a whirlwind 2017 establishing Elohim among the top new producers to watch. She released a notable collaboration with Chicago duo Louis The Child on hit single “Love Is Alive,” an Ultra Music release featuring Elohim as a co-producer, co-writer, and featured vocalist. She also released a co-produced single with Whethan titled “Sleepy Eyes,” which charted on the Billboard Dance Charts garnering 13MM+ Spotify streams to-date. Elohim rounded out 2017 with new single “The Wave” showcasing her intricately arranged production work against subtle melodies and crystalline vocals.
On the live side, 2017 saw Elohim captivate crowds including a NYC headline which AXS praised here, a mesmerizing LA headline @ The Hammer Museum which LA Weekly previewed here, and major festival plays including sets at Coachella, Middlelands, Lightning in a Bottle, Firefly, Lollapalooza, and CRSSD. She also joined Australian artist Alison Wonderland as direct support on her Fall 2017 U.S. tour.
Keeping fans on their toes, 2017 also saw Elohim surprise-release track “Eclipse,” fittingly titled and released on the date of the N. American solar eclipse, as well as trading covers with Passion Pit (“All That Gold” here / “Hideaway” here).
An artist whose striking visuals run seamlessly alongside the music, Elohim released another Megan Park-directed video for “Skinny Legs” here, the same director behind the stunning visual for Elohim’s 2016 single “Hallucinating.”
A classically-trained pianist, Elohim first debuted in 2015 with singles “She Talks Too Much” and “Xanax,” which saw a release as a 12″ via B3SCI Records. Elohim followed with a second 12″ via B3SCI featuring the exuberant “Bridge and the Wall” and elegantly emotive “Pigments,” which was released alongside a NERDIST-approved interactive video. Elohim released her self-titled debut EP early 2016 via B3SCI Records, which boasted singles “Sensations” and “Guts,” the latter of which debuted on Apple’s Beats 1.
Elohim has also forged notable rap/hip-hop collaborations, dropping tracks with former Odd Future member Casey Veggies on track “All That Gold” (of which she remixed herself) and a Darnell Williams single alongside Denzel Curry.
Be on the lookout for new music coming soon and for more info on Elohim’s debut album due out 2018.
