This morning, we feature Irish artist Elaine Mai in our Friday music slot. Elaine has been crafting a reputation for atmospheric and melodic electronic music over the years. Her upcoming release sees her continue her exploration into remixing by re-imagining Liza Flume’s track Sheets. It showcases her skill for lilting harmonies and storytelling through rhythm and repetition.
The video was directed by Bob Gallagher, well-known for his award winning music videos for Girl Band. He also recently directed a powerful human rights campaign video for Transgender EU. His video for Elaine Mai’s remix of Sheets complements the intimacy of the track, depicting a moving portrayal of the disintegration of a relationship.
Elaine said: ‘From the first time I heard Liza sing, I knew I wanted to work with her one day. I adored ‘Sheets’ when I heard it, and wanted to add another dimension to the vocal and emphasise the pain and loss in the track”.
Elaine launches her new EP, The Colour of the Night, in the Workmans, Dublin, on 5th May, and plays this year’s Body & Soul Festival at Ballinlough Castle, Clonmellon, Co. Westmeath, on the Summer Solstice weekend, June 23-25, 2017.
