Mystery Surrounds Elohim on ‘Pigments’

elohimpigments

It’s not often that a musician hails from LA that doesn’t have a shiny video clip to accompany every song, strutting into the pop category with all boxes ticked (don’t get me wrong though, Britney Spears is a Goddess). ELOHIM is changing all LA stereotypes, and her first offering of 2016, ‘Pigments’ is yet another feather in her elusive cap.

You could argue Elohim plays to a stereotype, or painstakingly avoids it in her ruthless pursuit of anonymity. No one sees her face, nor knows her actual name. She is the enigma of bittersweet synthpop, with a background in classical piano.

Elohim has an almost childlike quality to her wispy voice in ‘Pigments. The vocals feature layers, reminiscent of The Japanese House and the lyrics have a very dark feel, as does the electro sound itself, however something about the vocals and percussion as the track progresses has an upbeat sound, giving something that could be severely sad a bittersweet quality instead.

‘Pigments’ takes Elohim’s music in yet another direction. She may seem to be the master of disguise in covering her identity, but she is certainly a chameleon when it comes to musical direction.

‘Pigments’ is out now through B3SCI Records.

Over caffeinated weirdo who knows the meaning of eclectic music tastes because of Sister Act II. I’ll accept just about anything, except for that one Snoop Dogg album where track seven gives me a headache.
