Elohim Haunts With ‘Skinny Legs’ Video

Elohim’s new music video for her haunting single, Skinny Legs, is akin to all the eerie campfire stories that have haunted children since the dawn of suburbia. The video, directed by Megan Park, was released May 30 and features the young girl that posed for the single’s cover art as the main actress. The energetic and surreal tone of the video encourages the already mystifying track.

The suspenseful introduction acquaints the audience with a young girl as she bathes in the violent veronica light of what appears to be a portal. Quickly, she turns around and looks directly into the camera, marking the very second that the video arrests your eyes. A voice like satin whispers tales of insecurity as the young girl mouths along, creating a scene wrought with tension. The video seems like something to come from a sci-fi movie with the high levels of suspense, the pulsating music, and the timed chaos. Caught in the middle of every dimension is the captivating innocence of the girl, who constantly appears on edge, almost as if someone or thing was chasing her. Flashes of lights play tricks on the screen, distorting views in sync with lulls of lyrics to maintain interest. As soon as the monstrous electronics kick, the little sense of security that is left becomes lost amongst the storm. The beast takes hold of the girl, treating her as if she was a puppet. The 5-minute long auditory and visual trek obliterates the screen, leaving emotions on display that have long been stifled.

With a video that commandeers all cognizance and provides absolute vassalage, Elohim has begun her ascension beyond recognition simply for her musical achievements, but for the complete sensory experience that she creates. With a growing following that proves to be fiercely loyal and enough talent to back it all up, Elohim has no limit on the success that she can reach. Electronic music may have taken over the radio already, but Elohim isn’t stopping until she has your screen too. It’s this drive that has landed the artist an eventful 2017, with performances at both Lollapalooza Festival and Firefly Festival.

Elohim Gets Dark and Introspective With ‘Skinny Legs’

Elohim continues to dazzle with one lush electro-pop gem after another. Already a top artist to watch in 2017, the Los Angeles-based producer is a game-changer in forward-thinking electronic music, twisting the genre and its live execution in ways few others have dared. She struck gold with 2016’s mariachi-pop flavored ‘Hallucinating’ and recently debuted an enchanting collaboration track with dance-pop duo, Louis The Child.

Elohim’s latest release, ‘Skinny Legs’, is a riveting, 5-minute arrangement looming with ominous undertones and flashes of exuberant pandemonium. Gone are the instantaneous opening hooks of Elohim’s previous work, replaced by a haunting intro that flourishes into pulsating bass drums and elusive speaker vocals. Frantic and fuzzy electronics fill the instrumental chorus creating a calm and crazy contrast with each verse all culminating in an airy outro of levitating vocals. Think Lorde with a luscious coating. This enigmatic track lingers on the conscience and will leave you pining for Elohim’s next hit…which if history repeats, shouldn’t be too long.

Elohim will hit the festival circuit this Spring/Summer with major festival dates as follows:

April 14-16 // Indio, CA @ Coachella (Do Lab)
May 5-7 // Todd Mission, TX @ Middlelands
