“Standing strong for abuse survivors and raising awareness for the cause, Australian/ Sri Lankan artist ELSZ delivers a powerful song and video on International Women’s Day.” – The Knockturnal, New York Magazine
ELSZ is a producer, harpist, vocalist & dancer based between Sydney, Colombo and NYC. Her music moves between soulful avant pop & experimental r&b. Renowned for her enigmatic collaborations with international artists, she has toured Australia & world cities such as Paris, NYC, Barcelona, London, Mumbai & Colombo.
A prominent review of a single co-written with Australian artist Ribongia, said “‘Holler’, featuring ELSZ is one of the highlights of the EP, reminiscent of M.I.A. at some moments with its catchy chanted hooks, & FKA twigs at others, with the twitchy percussion & breathy vocals” – Pigeons & Planes.
She is currently in NYC where she is recording her forthcoming album with two time Grammy award-winning sound engineer Jeremy Loucas at NYC’s oldest recording studio, Sear Sound. Her live shows have been described as “otherworldly, evocative and unapologetic”.
