Living Life Golden
Swedish singer Ellinor Olovsdotter—a.k.a. Elliphant—shot to prominence after appearing on a clutch of high-profile collabs with Skrillex, Diplo, and MØ. Her second album calls back those friends for a celebration drenched with pop hooks, budding electro anthems, and attractive stylistic shifts. “Step Down” builds a midtempo banger from pulsing electro bass, while “Love Me Badder” and “Where Is Home” introduce hints of reggae and arena pop. A melancholic shade runs through “One More” and the Skrillex-produced “Spoon Me,” proving Elliphant a chameleonic chanteuse indeed.
