Crush of the Day: Elliphant – ‘Down On Life’


The sea, three horses, three cute girls with bomber jackets, unblinking, on an Icelandic iceberg. The track is repetitive, heady, but slightly out of reach – maybe too floating and disillusioned. And the lyrics are pretty crude (“We are waking up in a pile of shit, the whole bed is full of it”).

Elliphant is Swedish Ellinor Olovsdotter, who’s based in Stockholm after some time spent in London.
Her first released tracks are some kind of dirty electro hip hop like “Ciant Hear It“, which reminds of MIA’s debuts. “Down On Life” is more electro-heavy-pop-something and brings multiple possibilities to what’s waiting for us next.
