Elika is a boy and a girl from Brooklyn who write and record dreamy music with killer beats. They combine blissed-out and narcotic ambience with head-nodding beats that range from Downtempo to Trance to IDM. Spacey female vocals mix with gauzy, textured guitars, field recordings, and crisp drum programming to create incredibly visual songs with the atmosphere of childhood and layers of detail. A mix of Shoegaze and Electronica, Elika is equal parts Slowdive and Boards of Canada combined with elements from My Bloody Valentine, Aphex Twin, and Flying Saucer Attack. Their music washes neon-tinted melodies with multilayered, psychedelic percussion. This first TQA(r) release combines the best of their early material with brand new recently recorded exclusive tracks. The quality of their songwritiing and production makes them THE band to watch out for in today's shoegaze/dreampop scene. To create their sound, Elika uses processed ethereal vocals; analog and digital keyboards; snare drum and cymbals; treated guitar; and a laptop. Accompanied by beat matched projections, their live sound is an overwhelming mix of ambience, melody, and ass shaking bass.
