Elohim dropped one of the singles off of her upcoming debut album and it’s fucking great.
The song is an absolute jam in every sense of the word– but this isn’t the first time Elohim has made a jam. The chorus is a high-pitched rhythmic drop with the ever so anthem-esque “Fuck your money” chant being repeated. The song sounds much like many of Elohim’s previous work besides the drop which is proportionately wilder than the average Elohim chorus.
Elohim shared with us some of her inspiration behind the song, saying, “i grew up with very little money. my parents put all of their focus on our well being; learning the joy of music, feeding us organic food, and living a life full of LOVE. We didn’t have the fancy cars, the nice houses or expensive possessions. when my mom could feel my sadness as i discovered we were ‘different’ from other families, she’d remind me, ‘we are rich with love.’ I didn’t fully grasp the incredible importance of those words until recently. Love has become my main focus in life and i now know how priceless it truly is.”
She also shared her thoughts on the writing process: “A couple of months ago i drove past my childhood home and started singing ‘i got love fuck your money’ out loud.. and it all came to me. i began to form the verses, chorus and instrumental melodies in the car. i got home, showered and couldn’t stop singing it.. i jumped out in the middle of my shower to make a voice note still covered in soap. when i finished my shower i drove straight to the studio to produce and finish the song. when your music and lyrics are coming from a deep genuine place they pour out of you like a faucet you can’t stop. this is fuck your money.”
Elohim is about to have a 2018 and kicks off her tour on March 8th. You can find more from Elohim on our Tasty! Jams playlists for January.
