Biography

There are two artists with this name.

1. Elika formed in New York in 2005 by Evagelia Maravelias and Brian Wenckebach, Elika describe their dreamy music as “blissed-out ambience with head-nodding beats that range from Downtempo to Trance to IDM.”

They mix spacey female vocals with gauzy, textured guitars; field recordings; and crisp drum programming to create incredibly visual songs with the atmosphere of childhood and layers of detail. Describing their influences, Eva and Brian mention Slowdive, Karen Carpenter, Boards of Canada, Nico, Squarepusher and Flying Saucer Attack.

“Elika from Brooklyn—an incredibly exciting, radical fusion of shoegaze and electronica elements.”
- Ulrich Schnauss

“These kids are so good, they could battle the sun.”
– Jason Martin (Starflyer 59)

“Elika, the Chicago based DIY electronic-pop duo were exceptionally great at conveying their realistic feelings and emotions in their music.”
- Octave Shaper album review (http://www.muzikablog.com/music-review/elika-snuggle-bunnies-album-review/)

2. elika is the name of the singer who performed the Steam Detectives opening song “Kimi, Hohoenda Yoru.”
