It’s no surprise Sweden breeds some of the most glorious pop acts in the whole wide world − from the golden classics of Ace of Base to the sublime sophistication of Robyn. Ellinor Olovsdotter is a synthpop chanteuse and rapper who has garnered prime accolades from publications of the likes of Dazed & Confused, NME, and Pitchfork under the pseudonym of Elliphant.
Touring with fellow Nordic gutsy MØ in support of her debut full-length ‘No Mythologies to Follow’, lead to pairing up to make magic on Olovsdotter’s latest, “One More”. The track, out now on Record Company TEN, serves as the newest single by Elliphant succeeding the ‘Look Like You Love It EP’ released via Diplo’s Mad Decent earlier this year.

The clip to Say Lou Lou‘s latest single is a collabo with video collective Welcome to Cult, Lindstrøm, and other LA local artists.
