Elisabeth Elektra – My Sisters (Track Premiere)
Listen to My Sisters, the latest single from Elisabeth Elektra's upcoming debut album, Mercurial
Okay, so we’re all in agreement that things are pretty shit right now, but today we're thrilled to offer you a moment of respite and a breath of fresh air in the form of My Sisters, the latest single from Glasgow-based pop polymath Elisabeth Elektra.
Back in January, when 2020 looked like it was going to pan out a little differently, we premiered her track Crystalline saying: “fans of dreamy lo-fi synth-pop really have something to look forward to this year”. That sentiment remains as against all odds, the music continues and Elisabeth Elektra is focused on releasing her debut album Mercurial on 8 May.
The latest single from the record, My Sisters is exactly what we all need right now; cathartic, euphoric and highly danceable pop, it states its case early on as a Robyn-esque banger in these otherwise troubling times. Listen to My Sisters in the below SoundCloud player (click here if it’s not displaying correctly).
“My Sisters is a cabalistic anthem for witches, sex workers and marginalised women and femmes everywhere,” Elektra explains. “It’s a celebration of female sexuality, magic and the wisdom that women and marginalised people have developed as a result of living for so long under oppressive systems.”
She continues: “I’m really into disco, stuff like Cerrone, Tantra, Patrick Cowley etc which I think has influenced this song a lot. I really want people to dance to My Sisters, although given the current global situation that may mean living room dance parties. As an introvert I’m personally okay with that.”
My Sisters is released on 10 Apr; Mercurial is released on 8 May; pre-save the album on Spotify here. If you pre-order the album via Bandcamp then you'll get it a week early, with a bonus track included. If you're able to, please consider pre-ordering Mercurial on 20 March via Bandcamp when they will be waiving their revenue shares to help artists during this difficult time.
