ELKIN announce headline October show Upstairs at Whelan’s

Ellen and Carla were writing and singing together from the age of 15 before taking their music to a new level as ELKIN. Following the release of debut single Paro, ELKIN were named as one of’s Faces of 2018. Their debut EP, Bad Habits, was released in May 2018.

ELKIN draw influence from the R’n’B, pop, indie and folk worlds. With bassist Peter and guitarist Conor of Hatchlings, plus drummer Rob, “the band display an eclectic mix of R&B, pop and hip-hop beats, bolstered by alternating female vocals and smooth guitars.” Stephen Porzio, Hot Press

In February 2019, ELKIN released a new single Green Eyes, a collaboration with Æ MAK producer lullahush – ‘a sweet-sad pop banger infused with plenty of soul’ (Nialler9).

After gigs such as Whelan’s Ones To Watch 2019 and Nialler9’s Music Cork Showcase, ELKIN present new single Cut My Tongue for release June 2019.

“What impresses most is how self-assured the music and sound delivery is… easily able to go toe to toe with more established Irish (and indeed international) acts” – REMY

“Good pop music is in the chorus and ‘Green Eyes’ is an excellent example” – Nialler9
