Since starting out as a solo performer in 2011, Irish artist Elaine Mai has been crafting a reputation for atmospheric and melodic electronic music. ‘Enniscrone’ the first single taken from her upcoming EP, is a drifting instrumental track. Her latest release, a reimagining of Liza Flume’s track ‘Sheets’ sees her continue her exploration into remixing. It showcases her skill for lilting harmonies and storytelling through rhythm and repetition.
Since the release of her last EP in 2014, Elaine has been expanding upon her previous critically acclaimed live performances, experimenting with her live show as well as her approach to song-writing and production. Over the past two years, she has released several new remixes and co-produced the track Rocamadour with Irish producer, Daithí. She also wrote and produced the music for Finem Respice, a play which enjoyed a sold out run as part of the 2016 Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival.
Almost three years in the making, her new EP is a cathartic piece of work which centres around the common human experiences of grief and hope. ‘The Colour of the Night’ is out now.
