Elliphant – Down On Life

Elliphant announces herself with new video to the track ‘Down On Life’. Sounding like the twisted illegitimate offspring of MIA and Diplo – as deliciously fierce as the former but as intelligently playful as the latter – Elliphant pulls the balls of this dancehall slayer through its own throat and ties them in a cherry knot the other side. Ellinor Olovsdotter slowly morphed into Elliphant through the course of a long (and lost) summer travelling in the UK with only a dubstep soundsystem for company. After falling in love with the urban music sounds of London she returned home to Stockholm, on Sweden’s East Coast, boasting sizzling MC skills and some serious lyrical prowess. Now, having already won over the likes of Dazed & Confused ["all abstract lyrcisms and cheap dirty beats"], NME “[amazing'"], Pitchfork “[Elliphant sound like nothing but the future"] and the Guardian ["strangely captivating"] from afar’.

Elliphant – Down On Life

Elliphant – Down On Life Lyrics:
We are waking up in a pile of shit
The whole bay is full of it
And it keeps growing out of our ears
But we keep swimming in this wide oceans of salty tears

I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight
I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight

Down the central of your sensual sense
Freak more freaks now while I got the chance
But keeps on cool dubs, don’t waste the odds
The day is soon to come when you’re gone
Need it all
I say

I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight
I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight

Like leaves.
That days are falling not tell me why.
… carry for a while but it will fall to the ground.
Please stay, life is a calling.
Life not a waiting life is running away.
But long after you’re gone, your question would still be answered.
If you’re here, now you’ll be a … forever.

I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life.
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight.
I could use a break, me need to go down, down, down, down on life.
I need you to take all my shadows for a walk tonight.
