Elohim ‘Xanax’ (Official Video)
A while back we premiered LA artist ELOHIM’s track ‘Xanax’ and now, better late than never, we’ve got the mysterious Internet-age official video.
From the opening with the BBC World Service-style announcement of “do you have anxiety? I have anxiety”, we know this one’s going to be an interesting ride.
The track itself is drug-fuelled and hallucinatory, and the video does justice to this with the juddering snapshots and blurred montages of Elohim’s long straggly hair and lithe body.
Shot in black and white, more black than white, it gives way to jarring synthetic colours at the break of the maddening ‘every day of my day of my day of my life’ hook.
Elohim recently made her live debut in San Francisco and then London, followed by sets at NYC’s CMJ and Neon Gold’s ‘New Shapes’ showcase party.
The video comes on the tail of the release of her debut 12″ AA-side single featuring ‘She Talks Too Much’ and ‘Xanax,’ out now via B3SCI Records.
