Elisa & Srigala
“Together, their blend of neo-soul strikes the perfect balance between fresh and nostalgic, making for a sound that’s reminiscent of trailblazers Erykah Badu and D’Angelo, while incorporating the very best of contemporary UK hip-hop and R&B production.” - Lonely Table
Childhood friends from Brixton, Elisa Imperil and Srigala have been making music together since 2012, growing and developing their sound since. Their blend of hip hop/soul has a nostalgic and reflective tone that is bound to get your head nodding.
Released in 2017, their debut EP ‘1 o’clock club’ is an honest and self-aware reflection on experienced of love, loss and growing up. A heady blend of melodic, net-soul vocals with a hip-hop heritage, it’s a homage to the city that raised them, but also on a more personal level it’s a tribute to three friends who passed away in 2011.
Tipped by Lonely Table as up and coming artist to watch in 2017, the EP followed the release of ‘Differences’ which was selected by Gilles Peterson for Brownswood Bubblers 12 Pt.2 with a successful release on vinyl. Following support from 6 Music, Iggy Pop, Thris Tian, Brownswood Recordings and Worldwide FM and Brainchild.
The end of 2017 found the duo supporting Loyle Carner on his UK tour, and to kick off 2018 they have released their new single, Carefree and had their first headline gig sell out within two weeks at Bermondsey Social Club in February 2018.
Elisa & Srigala will be playing at Brainchild Festival, Boardmasters Festival and The Sugar Club in Dublin this summer.
