Los Angeles artist/producer Elohim has released the official video for new single ‘Buckets’, released earlier this month. A co-production with Skrillex, the track is out now via OWSLA and is the 2nd in a pair of singles Elohim has released via the label.
On the video, Elohim describes, “Buckets is an emotional purge for me and I hope the song can be that for the listener as well. This video was made in Copenhagen. It was different and really fun and exciting for me to let go and really trust putting it in the hands of the director and the beautiful girls acting in the video. Everything looks cooler in Europe, so I let them run with it, experiment and embrace the song.”
The video’s director Jonas Risvig adds, “We wanted to find some unspoiled youth for this video. We had to go on the streets for days to scout for potential actors. We wound up with these four girls who all knew about the streets and the culture that we wanted to portray. Elohim has a crazy artistic vibe around her and we really wanted to push these girls into her visual universe. We had to give them time to learn each other’s habits and let them develop a friendship in order to make them forget about the camera. Our talented DOP Jacob Møller didn’t want the girls to acknowledge him at all, and therefore, I as a director – had to step in and pretend to be their friend in order to get the results we wanted. The whole video is shot around the fashionable neighborhood Nørrebro and Copenhagen where all of the girls grew up. Therefore they knew all the corners and streets. We just had to follow them around and let them act out their inner demons.”
On the live side, Elohim has announced a run of LA / NYC intimate shows to take place this March. All three LA shows have already sold out. Elohim is also slated to play a run of 2019 festivals. See all dates below. Buy tickets here.

“Buckets” follows the November release of new single “Connect,” also a Skrillex co-production, which was Elohim’s first release with OWSLA. The track has seen critical love with Billboard calling it “an airy, synth-pop groove that lifts you gently. It brings a fresh perspective to retro vibes,” and Dancing Astronaut noting that the track “creates an uplifting atmosphere, lined by shimmering notes and warm harmonies.”
