“40 Watt” by ELEL

ELEL’s music, often described as “world pop,” is layered with swirling keyboards, guitars, horns, delicate percussion, and rollicking drums, creating an infectious groove for the intimate and melodic vocals. Influenced by a range of artists from Paul Simon to Fela Kuti to Beach House, they utilize rolling rhythms rather than a traditional rock n’ roll back & forth, making their fresh and eclectic sound seamlessly float between the pop and indie scenes. ELEL was handpicked by Mike Birbiglia to perform their song “40 Watt” alongside Lena Dunham and Keegan-Michael Key in the upcoming film Don’t Think Twice. ELEL’s forthcoming debut album Geode is due out in early 2016 via Mom + Pop Music.
