about

Tokyo’s ELLEH create songs for the early-morning hours, that stretch of time before trains start up for the day and when it is still possible to find escape from personal heartache in a club. The duo’s “Anthems EP Part I” is a gateway into the backstreets and dance floors their music is meant to soundtrack.

The four songs present on “Anthems EP Part I” zip between escape and gloom, ELLEH casting feelings of longing and loss through a tipsy filter that always stay in motion regardless of how painful it gets. “American Lover” is a playful and tipsy electronic pop number anchored by Teshima’s melancholy singing. Yet the pair explore more shadowy territory on cuts such as “Darkest Room In Holland,” and even more upbeat inclusions such as “New To This” and “Door To Tomorrow” feature unease in the corners. Rounding it out, producer Super Magic Hats offers a dreamy remix of “American Lover.”

This is just the first installment of ELLEH’s sad boy disco story, focused on one person’s bargaining with heartbreak and turning to music as salvation as the dawn nears.
Yet for the time being, just embrace your emotions and get lost in the sound.

Track Name: Door To Tomorrow
Opening
The door to tomorrow
Gunning down
All the opposing pawns
I want to feel
The night time passing
Thin skin thickening
The kingdom falling
New beginning

I’m sorry,
Goodbye
I loved you,
I think

Oh Sun! (Purifier of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Blinder of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Finder of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Savior of all the missing dreams)

Opening
The door to tomorrow
Filtering
Future bad myths
Lifting
God-awful weights
Heaven-cursing sins
Dead-cold yesterdays
Your blackhole eyes

I’m sorry,
Goodbye
I loved you,
I think

Oh Sun! (Purifier of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Blinder of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Finder of all the missing dreams)
Oh Sun! (Savior of all the missing dreams)

You’ll never get what you want
I’ll never get what I want now I know
