    Revolution - Acoustic version

It’s a rare occurrence, but once in a while a fully-formed new talent will emerge from seemingly out of nowhere.
That’s exactly what happened when Elias debuted in 2015 with ‘Revolution’. Here was an artist with a voice that was truly something else. Not only was it striking in its nuance and in its power, but it also was the voice of a man who has seemingly weathered a lifetime’s worth of emotional upheaval, and had learned how to convey love, loss and devastation with utter sincerity. And yet Elias was still just eighteen-years-old.
The reaction was suitably emphatic. Noisey described him as “a concoction of James Blake soulfulness and Bon Iver potential”, while i-D prompted comparisons with FKA twigs, Spooky Black, Anthony Hamilton and Sam Cooke as they praised his “gorgeously profound voice.”
And it wasn’t long before things took off for the young working class Stockholm resident. Releases such as the ‘Warcry’ EP and ‘Down N Out’ – accompanied by a striking video which used body horror as a byword for emotional pain – proved that ‘Revolution’ was no fluke flash-in-the-pan. Factor in a stunning once-in-a-lifetime performance at Sweden’s Grammis in 2016 and a collaboration with the Cullberg Ballet, and it’s clear that Elias is the real thing.
