PREMIERE: Turkish electro-goth artist ELZ releases new single ‘I DID THIS TO MYSELF’
‘I Did This To Myself’ is an electronic dystopia, one in which our greatest enemy is our own recklessness. The track feels like a dark synthwave version of Tears For Fears or Simple Minds. Pulsating synths act as stability for wild vocal experimentation and somber sentiments about collapsed romance.
The Turkish songwriter sheds light on what it’s like to be the sole reason behind your own heartbreak. “I did this to myself, try to kill every sense, not to think about your breath, your smile.” ELZ’s latest output is both impressive and honest, leaving us counting the days before his next reflective work.
ELZ is a passionate singer, songwriter and producer from Istanbul. Throughout the years, ELZ has received a lot of acclaim, including being the Akademia Music Award winner two different times. He likes to combine his one-of-a-kind sound called ‘Sci-Fi Pop’ (retro sci-fi mixed with trip-hop and synthwave elements) along with metaphorical lyrics and disturbingly beautiful visuals to provide the ultimate audience experience. ELZ’s first single Acid Symphony got accepted by MTV-U and AXS TV and went live on air and he released his very first EP ‘Future in Chrome Past’ right after the music video in 2016.
ELZ’s lead single ‘I Did This To Myself’ from his forthcoming debut full-lenght record ‘Polycephaly’ is coming soon. He grow up with the music of David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Marilyn Manson and he states them as his main influences and musical heros.
