Ela Minus – they told us it was hard, but they were wrong (Single)
Colombia-born/raised and Brooklyn-based Ela Minus presents her debut single for Domino “they told us it was hard, but they were wrong.” Ela melds machines with her living body, creating complex electronic music that exudes a vibrant warmth, and a stark, celebratory affirmation that our breaths aren't infinite. Self-made and punk in spirit, Ela uses only hardware synthesizers to perform, write, and record. The title of this debut single for Domino, “they told us it was hard, but they were wrong,” could easily be a line shouted by Fugazi, a band Ela cites as an inspiration. Over an invigorating beat and staccato synthesizer, Ela’s controlled, breathy vocals are motivating: “if you have to go to the bottom of a hole to find what’s wrong just let it go // everyone told us it’s hard, but they were wrong // when you love, you love it all and nothing seems impossible.”
