Elika’s latest—Girls, Be Serious—is a trilogy of 7 inch records that will be
revealed, one by one, over the next year. The records place intense
emotional content into an ocean of complex programmed rhythms a la
Grimes and M83, with an emphasis on honey-coated vocals and washes of
distant, dreamy synths and guitars. Nowhere is this more evident than on
the lead-off single, the instantly hummable “Moving Faster” which features a
soaring chorus and a driving, relentless heartbeat. Providing a counterpoint
to the first single, is the gorgeous “Bury,” which pairs Beach Boys styled
layers with a fragile and melancholic lead vocal. Taken together, this first
part of Girls, Be Serious is pure, visceral electrogaze vibes done right.
