Elliot is the brainchild of beer corpulent and modest twenty-two year old Swede Ellioth Axelsson. Based in Stockholm, he self admittedly “bedroom produces” earworms that are not conventionally pop.
Elliot is predominantly a lo-fi solo artist, producing his own version of music resembling art rock of days gone by. His writing ironizes and dissects music, but also shows great affection for the form Elliot takes his influences for art from more than just music and peers.
Elliot’s latest single, 35th Middle East Art Space in Humble Bragswick, includes Mesmerizing lo-fi vocals, organs and 60’s style guitar creating a sound firmly in the ballpark of Grizzly Bear, John Maus and the production creativity of an early Animal Collective.
“The title suggests the song is about next level middle class edge lord kids locusting poor urban neighborhoods, and you could derive that from the lyrics. It’s also about the art of Argentinian barbeque and two actors who resemble each other. It is coherently incoherent. I was spaced out”, explained Elliot.
