Elohim is taking a journey into the center of herself with her new EP.
Featuring five tracks, Journey to the Center of Myself, Vol. 1 finds Elohim experimenting with a variety of different sounds. After initiating the EP with its title track, Elohim battles with her ego on ensuing cuts as she alternates between seeing herself as a god and facing her own insecurities. Paranoia seeps through each track, her instrumentals pulling on unsettling sounds fit such as giggling voices made to raise goosebumps.
Journey To The Center Of Myself follows Elohim’s April collaboration with GRiZ, “Bring Me Back.” The thematic focus, Journey To The Center Of Myself complements that of the Los Angeles-based artist’s 2019 Braindead EP, which centered on mental health. Braindead was the focus of Dancing Astronaut‘s 2019 interview with Elohim.
