Journey to the Center of Myself Vol.1 is out now – listen here

Los Angeles-based artist Elohim  unveils her new single “Treat You Better,, the first track taken from her new EP ‘Journey to the Center of Myself Vol.2’ out on August 27th. Listen here. 

Earlier this year, Elohim announced  to the world her four-part ‘Journey to the Center of Myself’ project, the first volume of which was revealed on June 25th. The project came as a result of setting up a home studio during lockdown, which provided a creative period of inspiration reminiscent of her early years spent learning her craft; without rules, expectations, or schedules. 

Boasting euphoric house soundscapes, a sweet and vulnerable vocal delivery and future garage-leaning undertones, the  new single  is the perfect introduction to Volume 2 of Elohim’s intricate four-part EP series. Elohim writes, 

“I prefer the listener to find their own meaning within the lyrics and feeling of a song, but for me “Treat You Better” is a playful pact with myself to treat myself better. My brain walks out on me in the first verse because she thinks I’m not worthy of her anymore because I’m too self-destructive. This is that conversation. Me and my brain. Fantasy meets reality.”

With multifarious production styles and a voice that lends itself as well to an EDM banger as it does a delicate piano ballad, the Elohim sound is hard to pin down. Last month, ‘Journey to the Center of Myself Vol.1’ was heralded by a variety of sounds, including Scandi-flavoured pop banger ‘Nice’, the chiming and ethereal melodies of ‘Creatures’ reminiscent of the likes of Purity Ring, and lead single ‘Strut ft. Big Freedia’ – a surefire cut for the catwalk, hailed by MTV as “an instant classic,” with PAPER Magazine labeling it “an undeniable scorcher.”

Whilst Volume 1 is seen as the beginning of Elohim’s passage to self-discovery, Volume 2, shows Elohim searching for a state of optimum happiness; stepping into a self-made dream world to find the confidence to handle any situation. 

She describes the beginning of Elohim as “fight or flight”; either her anxiety would get the better of her, or she would use writing as therapy and bravely introduce herself to the world. In 2015 ‘She Talks Too Much’ dropped, a debut single which positioned Elohim as an edgy pop newcomer with an ear for a catchy riff. Later single ‘Xanax’ struck an instant chord with people battling their own anxieties, as the track was the first of many honest explorations of her mental health.

In 2021, Elohim now enjoys over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and in excess of 300 million combined streams globally. She’s collaborated with EDM titans like Skrillex and Marshmello, as well as GRiZ, Louis the Child, The Glitch Mob, and most recently with Flux Pavilion and Ookay. Since 2017 she’s played shows at Coachella and Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, HARD Summer and EDC Mexico, as well as CRSSD in San Diego and New York’s Governors Ball.
