Electro-soul artist ELKAE is an exciting new force in Irish music. With timeless vocals and killer beats, this funky singer/producer has headlined the Sound House and made it to Spotify’s ‘A Breath Of Fresh Éire’ playlist. And with only two singles out so far – 2018’s ‘Sold’ and the recent ‘I Feel’ – she’s just getting started.
Dublin producer, singer and musician Laura Keane aka Elkae has shown an adeptness for creating bright pop music that draws from soul and pop with earworm choruses.
‘Sold’ is absolutely fantastic. There’s a gorgeous influence of late 70s disco, heard best in the harmonies and rhythms of the chorus section. The verses bring in a more contemporary sense of pop music. Keane’s vocal delivery is precise and fluid. No surprise considering her musical education in BIMM.
Keep Walking Music
Whether she’s singing or writing new music, ELKAE is an artist with many talents. Her latest release, ‘White Dress’, highlights the artist’s knack for writing catchy songs with an original sound. Not only do we love ELKAE’s writing style, but as the artist continues to blossom we fall more and more in love with her creative vision
Cheers to the Vikings
The Irish artist ELKAE shared with us a song titled “Cause I Was Busy Working” and is one of the most beautiful and charming songs that we have ever heard.
When The Horn Blows
There’s a real sense of uplifting solidarity in the soulful layered hook as ELKAE navigates through despondency, to soar above the shackles that society places on us with startling clarity. A moving track showing abundant power and presence.
The Last Mixed Tape:
Set to a hazy, sun-soaked backdrop the vivid electro-soul sound of ‘I Feel’ makes for a compelling return from Elkae that finds her delving further into the lush pop sounds that shaped her previous offerings.
With a vibrant interplay of hooks, moving synth-pop parts and lyrics that convey the myriad of emotions that characterise a summer romance, Elkae’s ‘I Feel’ sets a lasting impression through multi-layered music that flows from beginning to end.
