“Originally a duo of Carla Ryan and Ellen O’Mahony, ELKIN have expanded into a four-piece and taken their folk pop template in bold new directions. Throw in the odd hip-hop collaboration and they’re a band constantly on the move.” –State.ie, 2018
ELKIN are an exciting new band who are already making waves on the Irish music scene after just one year as a four-piece. Ellen and Carla spent five years perfecting their harmonies and developing their original work before recruiting drummer Robert and bassist Peter in 2017. Their collaboration with Tebi Rex, ‘She Hated Love Songs II’, received praise from Dan Hegarty and Eoghan McDermott amongst others. Their blues-inspired pop sound is captured in their first single, ‘Paro’, released in October 2017. ELKIN were named as one of State.ie's Faces of 2018 and performed at the Whelan’s Ones to Watch 2018 Festival in January. Their eagerly-awaited debut EP, ‘Bad Habits’, is set for release May 12th.
Join ELKIN at The Cobblestone, Smithfield on May 25th for their EP Launch Party, featuring some very special guests!
