Elkka will release a new EP, ‘Euphoric Melodies’, via Ninja Tune’s Technicolor imprint in May.
The femme culture co-founder’s new five-track release follows her ‘I. Miss. Raving. / Bleep+’ single on Local Action from 2020, and her breakthrough ‘Every Body Is Welcome’ EP from 2019. You can hear the bouncy, festival-ready lead track, ‘Burnt Orange’ below.
The aptly titled new EP will be released on 21st May, and finds Elkka exploring themes of personal freedom and self belief, and emphasizing the importance of “impulse over perfection”.
“‘Euphoric Melodies’ started out as an exploration of what pulls me in, what makes me feel those moments of elation when writing music or listening to it, or just when living life,” says Elkka of the EP. “The underlying theme seems to be warmth, euphoria and nostalgia, which is what plays out in this EP in different forms. Little did I know that as the EP came together nostalgia for euphoria would be so prevalent.”
