hmv tips for 2014…Elliphant

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Elliphant, she's going to smash your ears in…

 

Who Is She?

Elliphant, a.k.a Ellinor Olovsdotter, is a Swedish singer-songwriter. Billed as a producer/MC, her fiery tracks and incendiary live shows have already got her some pretty famous fans. She's signed a deal with super producer Dr Luke’s Sony imprint Kemosabe and her new EP will be getting a release on both that label and Diplo's Mad Decent imprint, some powerful company right there.

 

Who Does She Sound Like?

The nastiest, sleaziest guitars, the sketchiest, most brooding basslines smashed together with Olovsdotter's sneering yet amazingly graceful vocals. The comparisons are kind of obvious, Lykke Li, Robyn, M.I.A, none have her spiky take on things though, which is a new, very welcome twist.


Why Should I Be Excited?

Every single track she's dropped so far has been amazing, each as standoffish, spit in your face aggressive and swoon-worthy as the one before.


Can I Hear Something?

Sure. Take a listen to 'Revolusion', which is below, it's ace.
