In the video for her single "Only Getting Younger," Elliphant visits the dentist. Or has a dystopian rave in a hospital. In either case, her music is like infection: aggressive, delirious and frighteningly catchy. See the crazy video on Vevo. Listen to it here:
The 28-year-old Swedish pop star Elliphant, aka Ellinor Olovsdotter, released her debut album, A Good Idea in October of 2013 after developing her musical style during a summer spent listening to bass music in the U.K.
Although she's new to the scene, with her new Skrillex-produced track "Only Getting Younger," Elliphant has dropped a bomb everyone. With lyrics like,"Walk around with bloody hands/I saw ya lick it off," she's like a violent M.I.A., mixing elements of house, hip hop, and pop.
At the end of September, Elliphant will tour with the British pop star Charli XCX. Starting in Florida, the two will hit Webster hall October 7th and San Francisco on Oct 25th, making stops at venues like D.C.'s 9:30 Club, and Austin's Emo's en route.
