"Originally a duo of Carla Ryan and Ellen O’Mahony, ELKIN have expanded into a four-piece and taken their folk pop template in bold new directions. Throw in the odd hip-hop collaboration and they’re a band constantly on the move.” State.ie, 2018
Joined by Peter Kelly of Hatchlings, and Robert Kelly formerly of Witchs Rave. ELKIN are already making waves on the Irish music scene after just one year as a four-piece. Their collaboration with Tebi Rex, ‘She Hated Love Songs II’, received praise from Dan Hegarty and Eoghan McDermott among others. Following the release of their debut single ‘Paro’, ELKIN were named as one of State.ie's Faces of 2018 and performed at the Whelan’s Ones to Watch 2018 Festival in January.
Their eagerly awaited debut EP, Bad Habits, was released May 12th. From the dark, punchy blues of “Honey”, to crowd favourite “I Got Love”, ELKIN present a soulful collection of original tracks, cementing their place amongst the most exciting up and coming Irish acts of this year.
