Crush of the Day: Elliphant – ‘Live Till I Die’



The Knife will be making their long-awaited comeback this year and if, like me, you’re a rabid fan who’s been counting down the days to the release of Shaking The Habitual (approximately 43 days more!), perhaps you’d appreciate taking a breather from the increasing trepidation and temporarily satiate your musical needs by listening to new acts that seem to have taken a leaf from The Knife’s icy-sharp electro assault, such as CHVRCHES and my personal crush of the day, Elliphant. We’ve earlier seen their video for ‘Down on Life’; this time Swedish fox Ellinor Olovsdotter brings the heat to the rolling beats and synth lines of ‘Live Till I Die’ with her rousing Jamaican-tinged vocals, which may seem incongruous against her snowy surroundings but somehow it simply works. Imagine M.I.A. frolicking around in a winter wonderland with The Knife’s Karin and Olof – or simply watch the video below and experience Elliphant for yourself.
