SONG OF THE DAY: ELLIPHANT – “DOWN ON LIFE”

The world needs more Scandinavian female acts. Nordic lassies are on the come-up in the international music scene and are a breath of fresh air in a world of cookie-cutter pop stars and wannabe celebs. Some of our recent obsessions are , Tove Lo, LCMDF, and our latest crush, Elliphant.

A singer-songwriter from Sweden, Elliphant is one of the top rising artists in her country. With a well-received 2013 self-titled EP, and co-signs from artists ranging from Diplo to Twin Shadow to Katy Perry, her music is surely crossing the Atlantic.

Today’s chosen track is her song, “Down On Life.” It’s a perfect fusion of indie-pop and reggae, packed with catchy melodies, and Elliphant’s poppy and persuasive vocals. Oh yeah, and did we mention that she’s cute as a button (as all Swedes seem to be)? Hear and see for yourself:

Tickets are available here for her LA show on June 29th at The Fonda.
