“ELSKA brings something new and exciting - catchy pop tunes, percussive beats and the rarely seen but magnificently performed harp. She’s the best kind of surprise package.”
— BLEACH* Festival
heart + harp
Infusing playfulness and wonder into the Australian pop music industry, Gold Coast artist ELSKA has redefined the humble harp - marrying the delicate instrument with the power of a loop pedal. Oozing charm with a new brand of breezy soulful pop, ELSKA creates melodic harp-infused pop music designed for daydreaming, road tripping and romance.
Penning heart-fuelled tales of love, betrayal and finding 'the one', ELSKA loops captivating melodies with rhythmic harp beats - infusing her soulful vocal into a meander of moments we can all relate to in life and love. It's easy to get swept up in ELSKA's mesmerizing brand of pop, where timelessness is romanticized with technology.
ELSKA has just wrapped performing at the 2018 Caloundra Music Festival - alongside headliners Birds of Tokyo, John Butler Trio, The Temper Trap, Sneaky Sound System, Sheppard, and Grammy award winners Arrested Development (USA). Earlier this year, ELSKA performed a string of successful shows for the Gold Coast's signature Arts festival, BLEACH*; in partnership with the XXI Commonwealth Games Festival 2018 program.
ELSKA has just been announced as a showcasing artist at the 2018 Australian Music Week in Sydney this coming November. Along with her showcase performance, ELSKA's just released short documentary, 'Heart + Harp', is also part of the official selection for the 2018 Australian Music Week Film Festival.
These are huge successes for an artist whose debut single 'Boy' was only released on September 14. Recorded at Brighton Electric Studios, UK, with prominent British producer, Dan Swift [Passenger, Snow Patrol, Aqualung], 'Boy' is a feelgood soul-pop nod to the 70s, that sweeps you up in a story about finding love in a peculiar place.
Heart and harp. Love and a loop pedal. ELSKA is for the curious romantics.
