“I want to take your on a journey”
Those were the eight words that kicked off Elohim’s futuristic set at New York City’s Terminal 5. Elohim has been able to keep the mystery of herself on lock for some time, and her live show was no different. The air was filled with smoke and the stage was dark to keep the mystery of Elohim alive. While Elohim is still somewhat of a mystery, her live show at New York City’s Terminal 5 proved that she leaves her all in her music and live shows. What makes Elohim incredible is that she is a one woman show. The singer/songwriter/producer/musician does it all on stage. She goes from singing to playing remixed versions of some of the hottest tracks. When we arrived, she was bumping this hard remix of a Kanye West track. I knew then, that the electronic one woman show was going to take us on a ride.
“I want you to be free.”
She performed one of our favorite tracks “Sleepy Eyes,” which has nearly 700k listens on SoundCloud. In addition to performing her popular songs “Hallucinating,” “Skinny Legs,” and the Louis the Child collaboration “Love is Alive,” Elohim showed us her range of sound with her own flavor of Future’s Xanny Family, and Frank Ocean’s “Chanel.” Elohim brought the room to a euphoria state. Her music transcends space and sound, and lifts the listener off of their feet. From watching Elohim’s live show, you get a sense that she understands emotion and how to control and captivate her audience.
Although Elohim was hidden behind the smoke, her visuals transported you into her futuristic world.
“I want you. I want to want you.”
Cryptic messages played throughout the show and added an element of mystery, which kept us wanting more. A highlight of the night was when Elohim performed “Fuck Your Money,” as the words poignantly flashed on the screen. We could not stop dancing last night, and did not want Elohim to end. She has grown over this year, and her live performance shows that she is a force to be reckoned with; overall, the one woman show fills the room, and we are excited to see what Elohim puts together in the future.
Tonight, you can catch Elohim in Philadephia at the Electric Factory, and in D.C. on Saturday at Echostage. Be sure to catch Elohim in a city near you, and be on the lookout for one of our favorite tracks now “Eclipse.”
