ELOHIM – Fuck Your Money
Elohim released a new song today. It’s called Fuck Your Money. The single is on her forthcoming debut album, set to be released in 2018 via BMG. To me, the single has a carnival-pop vibe, with a super jovial synth melody for the chorus. This is contrasted by ELOHIM’s more melancholic vocal vibe.
Elohim sent a quote along about the track…
“I grew up with very little money. my parents put all of their focus on our well being; learning the joy of music, feeding us organic food, and living a life full of LOVE. We didn’t have the fancy cars, the nice houses or expensive possessions. when my mom could feel my sadness as i discovered we were ‘different’ from other families, she’d remind me, ‘we are rich with love.’ I didn’t fully grasp the incredible importance of those words until recently. Love has become my main focus in life and i now know how priceless it truly is.”
“A couple of months ago i drove past my childhood home and started singing ‘i got love fuck your money’ out loud.. and it all came to me. i began to form the verses, chorus and instrumental melodies in the car. i got home, showered and couldn’t stop singing it.. i jumped out in the middle of my shower to make a voice note still covered in soap. when i finished my shower i drove straight to the studio to produce and finish the song. when your music and lyrics are coming from a deep genuine place they pour out of you like a faucet you can’t stop. this is f*ck your money.”
Fuck Your Money kicks off an action-packed 2018 for ELOHIM. She’s set to go on a Spring U.S. Tour. which includes major festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and Buku Music + Art Project. I’ve posted the tour dates below the song, so if you see ELOHIM is playing in a city near you, click HERE to purchase tickets.
2017 was a big year for Elohim. She released an Ultra Music collab with Louis The Child, co-produced a single with Whethan, which charted on Billboard Dance Charts, and had successful release of her single, The Wave. She toured, playing major festivals such as Coachella, Middlelands, Lightning in a Bottle, Firefly, Lollapalooza, and CRSSD. She also joined Alison Wonderland as direct support on her Fall 2017 U.S. tour.
Elohim really started gaining traction in 2015. The A classically-trained pianist debuted with singles She Talks Too Much and Xanax. She even collabed on a hip-hop project with Odd Future member Casey Veggies on All That Gold.
I’m pumped to hear what ELOHIM has in store for 2018.
