Elki is a brand spanking new artist from Sydney, Australia, with a love for songwriters such as Kate Bush, Burt Bacharach, and Stevie Wonder. After managing to avoid social media all her life, she finally decided to bite the bullet and jump head first into it all, in order to get her first track out and into the world.
Elki collaborated with renowned Australian producer Joel Quartermain (Meg Mag, Little Birdy, Eskimo Joe) to create her debut track, ‘Sirens’. She was a fan of Joel’s production work, and after sending him some demos, Elki was stoked when he was keen to work with her.
The tune ‘Sirens’ is inspired by the neo-noir film ‘Body Heat’ from the 80s. The pared back intimate verses were written to contrast with the explosive and powerful declaration in the choruses – of power and guilt. The mellotron strings and Jupiter synth work in tandem to swell to an orchestral climax and a stomping chorus.
