BUKU Artist Spotlight: Elohim

Written by on February 7, 2018

Elohim, a mysterious and new face in electro-pop, is an exciting artist from L.A. who began her music career from a humble place. Being a shy, quiet young girl who had a passion for playing the piano, this passion grew into a talent for remixing and producing music. She began working with other young and up and coming L.A. artists, like Casey Veggies, who she remixed for. Soon after working with getting into the world of producing, she began creating her own music, with her first single “Xanax” being released in 2015. With success and positive feedback from the single, and generally gaining popularity due to her mysterious and interesting vibe, she released her first full self-titled album in 2016. Finding a unique niche in the crossroads between electronic and pop sound, she’s also collaborated with artists like Louis the Child and Darnell Williams.

Something that sets Elohim apart from most other women in music is her extremely private, mysterious, and unique image and energy. Going to extreme lengths to maintain privacy, keeping her face and voice hidden, she discusses the reasons for doing this in an interview with Nylon. Elohim says she tries to remain anonymous outside of her music so she does not skew the experience of her music, and so people are not influenced by her external appearance. Over the past year, Elohim brought her unique energy on a world-wide tour for the first time opening for Alison Wonderland. Despite playing live and appearing onstage, Elohim manages to maintain her mysterious persona while also performing a beautiful live set.

Elohim brings her talent to an exciting lineup with BUKU Music & Arts Festival in New Orleans this March 9-10, performing along acts like Bassnectar, Migos, SZA, and many more. You won’t want to miss out on the biggest party this spring break in the vibrant city of New Orleans. Click here to buy tickets to BUKU and check out Elohim’s Soundcloud below.
