Bio

DEBUT EP OUT NOW

ELKI is a Sydney singer-songwriter with a passion for the melodic mastery of Burt Bacharach and an ongoing obsession with the fiery pop dramatics and genius of Kate Bush.

Her debut single, Sirens, was spun by BBC Radio One and her praises have since been sung from Stereogum ("dangerously catchy pop sensibilities") to the Vanda and Young Songwriting competition. After selling out her headline show ELKI then toured with Bec Sandridge along the East coast of Australia, and has played shows and festivals with acts such as I know Leopard, Ayla, Wharves, Alexander Biggs and Thelma Plum.

The perfect soundtrack for one of those low key nights in by the fire, thinking not much exciting could happen until ELKI takes you by the hand, gets you up on your feet and takes you for one of those feel good dances in the lounge room. You'll be spinning in freedom and energy and you just won't be able to wipe that smile off your face. So many clever pop hooks here, it sprouts with colour and bounce and that piano stole my heart. Love this.

Evoking the spirit of some fine pop artisans in this - Regina, Emiliana etc. Love the way your voice bounces around the percussive track.
