Electronic musician Elephante has released his new pandemic-inspired single ‘Holy Ghosts’. The multi-talented Asian-American singer/songwriter/producer debuted the track on July 23rd, ahead of his sophomore album due this fall. ‘Holy Ghosts’ invites listeners to explore peak-pandemic Los Angeles through Elephante’s musical lens, as he navigates the ghost-town in search of the normalcy of human connection and interaction. The song’s dark, intimate production provides Elephante the perfect canvas for a lucid dance track that acts as a hauntingly beautiful celebration of what we have been through, and what is to come.
‘Holy Ghosts’ continues Elephante’s meteoric rise to stardom, following his previously released single ‘High Water’ and its ambitious and breath-taking music video released through 88rising. 2021 sees the return of Elephante, whose discography boasts some impressive past projects, his 2016 EP I Am The Elephant, a nine-track exploration of progressive house, synthpop, and trap; and 2018’s Glass Mansion, which peaked at no.1 on the iTunes Dance charts. The video for ‘High Water’ sees Elephante prove himself both as a musician and as a stunt performer, as the Alex Goyette-directed project has him submerged in water while performing the single, taking the high-octane concept seen before from The Strokes and Radiohead to new levels.
Elephante’s (real name Tim Wu) career began after the son of Taiwanese immigrants left corporate American after graduating from Harvard University and finding himself despising every minute. In addressing the ‘Elephant(e) in the room’ Wu decided to pursue his passion for music and since has enjoyed enormous success, headlining two sold-out national tours, appearing at major music festivals including Lollapalooza, and playing a number of big-name nightlife residencies. For now, Elephante is looking forward to releasing more music alongside ‘Holy Ghosts’ and ‘High Water’, with his sophomore album releasing this fall.
