All My Shadows For A Walk Tonight

"Elliphant pulls the balls of this dancehall slayer through its own throat and ties them in a cherry knot the other side." So reads the boisterous introduction on Swedish newcomer Elinor Olovosdotter's website for her musical project, Elliphant.

She claims to be influenced by M.I.A. and Diplo so its perhaps not surprising that she bears a sonic resemblance to their frequent collaborator Santigold. Current single 'Down On Life' is currently the source of mild blogospheric hysteria, thanks to its zany lyrics, contagious melodies and striking music video. She's apparently signed to the same management company as Niki & The Dove, so let's hope she can capitalise on the attention she's currently receiving better than they have.
