N. AMERICAN TOUR WITH BLACKBEAR TO KICK OFF NEXT WEEK, 2019 FESTIVALS SLATED
(Los Angeles, CA – May 10, 2019) Los Angeles artist / producer Elohim has released a brand new EP titled, Braindead. Listen to the EP in full + new single and title track “Braindead” now here.
Elohim first revealed the news of the EP in a recent interview with Variety here. The project explores Elohim’s courageous struggle with mental health – a centerpiece of her artistry and songwriting since day 1. The release is timed with the month of May in support of Mental Health Awareness Month and Elohim will donate 100% of the May proceeds from the EP to a selection of charities focusing on providing outreach and support for those suffering from mental health issues.

+ NEW SINGLE “BRAINDEAD” HERE
As a gift to fans, Elohim has also released a series of breathwork videos here for each song on the EP as a form of guided meditation. She will also release a docu-series about the EP that will roll out over the coming month on her YouTube channel.
Speaking on the EP, Elohim notes, “Braindead is a look into the beautifully broken minds of humans that face the challenges and struggles of mental health issues. We all see the world differently. Braindead is a musical tapestry that I made for people to listen to and hopefully explore their hearts, mind, and the world they live in with less fear, more clarity, and less self judgement.”
Following a run of L.A. / NYC intimate shows this spring in which Elohim debuted a stripped-back set with just her at a piano accompanied by a string quartet, she will continue to tour this year with a string of festival dates and a N.
