Single Review: elkkle — 'Frails’

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Fresh from supporting Golden Vessel on tour, Melbourne’s elkkle has dropped his new single ‘Frails’, which is the second from his highly anticipated forthcoming EP. 

Emotionally heavily, ‘Frails’ sees elkkle reflects on the conflicting nature of attempting to balance physical and mental health. In a statement, he says “Sometimes when one begins to slip, it's very easy to let it drag the other one down”. This is echoed in the beat, where elkkle has used haunting and shadowy synths to show these feelings of dejection and struggle. Combine the impassioned nature of the production with his vocals, and it will leave your skin covered in goosebumps. The lyrics are also reflective and capture the heart of the story elkkle shares.

Along with appearing on his upcoming EP, ‘Frails’ also features on Kitsuné’s latest ‘Hot Stream’ collection.
