Bringing lush harmonies and bouncing bass to their dreamy alt-pop sound, ELKIN return with their new single ‘Tokens’. Threaded with folk influences, the new track is an indie gem sure to take this talented duo to even greater heights. With their poetic lyrics reminiscing on that sweet honeymoon period, ‘Tokens’ is effortlessly uplifting.
Discussing their new single, ELKIN reveals: “To us ‘Tokens’ is a celebration of all the memories we’ve made in our early 20s. We wanted to capture the nostalgia you feel when a song comes on and reminds you of the person who first showed it to you. This song is an homage to all the friends we’ve made along the way.”
Formed by Ellen O’Mahony and Carla Ryan, ELKIN are an Irish indie-pop duo who are receiving growing support. They were selected to perform at showcases such as Whelan’s Ones to Watch, Music Cork and Ireland Music Week, alongside performances at OutPut Showcase in Belfast and Other Voices Music Trail, Ballina. Set to release an EP funded by the FMC Recording Stimulus Grant in the near future, ELKIN are set for great things.
