Creating something different and without bounds can be difficult at times. Through a shifting array of instrumentation though, the music of Ela Minus achieves such a feat. On her new single “megapunk” she not only does so with ease, but fools your ears into thinking what you’re hearing is less involved than it is. The video is just as impressive.
The video shutters between these black and white images while revealing the lyrics as well. However the music is where the real sorcery lies. Sounding closest to darkwave, the electronica tones and hearty beat give way to a feel that’s in its own lane. Definitely a head bopper, the vocals are to the point and without confinement, helping move the track along.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is ready to preorder on a 12″ vinyl under the title THEY TOLD US IT WAS HARD, BUT THEY WERE WRONG directly from Domino Records ahead of its August 28 release. The single can also be streamed on all streaming sites.
