BRAZILIAN DUO ELEKFANTZ DELIVERS A LUSH RETRO-INSPIRED GEM
Rising to the forefront of the musical community’s consciousness with their stunning 2014 single “Wish,” Brazilian duo Elekfantz has developed a reputation for their lush, spellbinding melodies, ethereal harmonies, and the earthy, organic quality of their music. Their latest release, “The Promise,” lives up to the Elekfantz standard of quality sounds – conjuring memories of a decade gone by, the warm and moody melodic masterpiece is filled with longing, nostalgia and hope. It’s easy to hear influences of New Order and The Cure in its haunting beauty.
“The song is about the memory of an unforgettable night between two people who want to come together again, but who are stuck in the present with regrets that do not allow them to so,” said Leo Piovezani, one half of Elekfantz and the voice on the record.
The accompanying video, harnessing the projections of visual artist Bruno Bez, channels the same vintage vibes and washes the scenes in mesmerizing color overlays to add a dreamlike quality to the listening and viewing experience. Fall under Elekfantz spell now with “The Promise.”
