About Elohim

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Elohim crafts electronic pop veiled in mystery that puts the focus on her music. Finding artistic freedom in anonymity, the artist keeps her face hidden, masks her voice in interviews, and keeps all but a few personal details to herself, like the fact that she began playing piano at the age of five and started singing at nine. Influenced in equal measure by Rachmaninov and Debussy as Radiohead and Björk, Elohim's resulting output is hook-savvy, hip-hop-influenced synth pop in the vein of Lorde and Grimes. Making her debut in 2015, Elohim released the singles "She Talks Too Much" and "Xanax," both of which appeared on her debut album, Elohim, which arrived in 2016. "Hallucinating" followed later that year, marking a shift in sound that expanded her sonic palette by including horns and even a mariachi flair. In 2017, Elohim released the singles "Skinny Legs" and "Sleepy Eyes," a collaboration with Whethan. Both songs appeared on Elohim, her second self-titled effort, which was released in early 2018. Later in the year, her single "Connect" appeared, co-produced by Skrillex and issued on his OWSLA label. Early in 2019, "Buckets," another single from their collaboration, was released; she was also featured on Detroit-based vocalist/songwriter Quinn XCII's single "Holding Hands." In May of that year, Elohim issued an extended deluxe edition of her debut LP featuring remixes of many of its tracks. The following week, she issued the EP Braindead, with revealing songs written and produced by her that focused on her own mental health struggles. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
