Looking back at the time your parents divorced and its effects are explored through the debut single Neighbours from Little Elm.
Based in Berlin, Little Elm consists of an international collective from Denmark, Iran, France and Bulgaria and Sweden – Embla Hällgren (Vocals) and Elias O. Graversen (Vocals, Synth) Ashkan Olfati, Ulysse Blanc (Guitar) and Viktor Velinov, Joakim Jägerhult (Rhythm section).
Performed as a duet, Embla and Elias’s absorbing tones present an appealing and soulful warmth to their stories. At the same time, the understated production mirrors the conversation building to reach a scintillating synth climax.
‘Neighbours‘ is a personal revelation exploring the deprivation of growing up with divorced parents and the song explains the consequences of having your heart broken by that relationship you thought would last forever. And, as the band explain – the longing of having a child and starting your own family.
It’s an extremely thoughtful release with enough detail in this composition to leave us wanting more. Neighbours is the first track from the band’s upcoming EP, due for release in 2021, so we won’t have to wait too long for more Little Elm.
