Interview: Elohim And Her Journey Through Music & Mental Health

Although Elohim could be considered enigmatic, many would know her as one of the most relatable musicians in the industry.

Elohim’s music often explores themes of mental health, self-acceptance, and introspection, with lyrics that are deeply personal and reflective, creating a safe space for her fans to share and express.

Swirling her depth with the unique blend of electronic and indie-pop elements, combined with her evocative vocals and introspective lyrics, Elohim has earned her a reputation as a unique and innovative electronic artist.

With her recent release, “Breath,” hitting the platforms we had the chance to sit down and talk with Elohim about her upcoming album and tour as well as how she copes with the polarizing journey the music industry tends to be:

EDM Maniac: Hey queen! How’s it going? We appreciate you sitting down to chat with us today. Let’s start with your latest single “Breath,” can you tell us about the process of making this song?

Elohim: Hello! It’s an honor, thank you so much for catching up with me and talking about my journey.

So making Breath was both spiritual and cathartic. Lying in bed one night, I started humming “When I’m falling to pieces you are my reason to take a chance on me.”

I kept singing it over and over, feeling more and more emotional, yet empowered. Looking up at the sky, my hum became a yell, alone in my bed belting it out. I wrote the entire song breath by breath.

EDM Maniac: We love that you fuel your music with your emotions, can you tell us a little bit about how you keep up with your mental health while also being in the music industry?

Elohim: Handling mental health in the music industry can be challenging, as the fast-paced, high-pressure nature of the industry can take a toll on one’s well-being. It’s important to acknowledge that mental health struggles are valid and should not be dismissed.

One common experience in the industry is feeling drained from being around people constantly, as the music industry often involves extensive social interaction. It’s crucial to prioritize self-care and set healthy boundaries to protect your mental health.

The people close to me also are a huge staple in my everyday life. I also love to follow a route when I can since the industry can be all over the place.

EDM Maniac: Boundaries and focusing on yourself is key! Can you elaborate a little about your day-to-day route?

Elohim: Currently, I’m in album mode, focusing on creating new music. However, shows are starting next month, which means my workload will increase.

To maintain my mental health, I prioritize self-care. This includes staying hydrated with water and coffee, making time for regular exercise at the gym, and dedicating time to work on my music.

It’s important for me to also listen to myself and be mindful of my own needs during this busy period. By taking care of my physical and mental well-being, I can better navigate the demands of the music industry and stay focused on my creative process.

EDM Maniac: With that being said we know your sophomore album Power of Panic is due to be released soon, can you tell us a little about the inspiration behind this art piece?

Elohim: Taking control while letting go has been a transformative process for me. Despite the initial panic that comes with change, I’ve discovered a sense of power in navigating through it. The process itself has become a source of strength for me.

One genre of music that has been particularly empowering for me is bass music. It makes me feel amazing and inspires me, which is why you’ll hear more of it on my next album.

I feel an immense sense of pride in this project, more than I’ve ever felt about my music before. The music itself fills me with a sense of power, while also getting the hell out of my own way. Sometimes you are the only thing standing in your way.


EDM Maniac: We really can be our own worst enemy and being able to source that panic and turn it into power is truly magical. Okay, so a not-so-serious question but we are dying to know, who are some artists on your playlist right now?

Elohim: Wow great question. I have a deep appreciation for hip hop, especially artists like Drake, Babyxsosa, and Lil Yachty. Also anything with a lo-fi vibe that I find captivating.

Listening to rap before I play gives me a sense of badassery. It pumps me up for whatever I have coming up. Lil Yachty’s new album, in particular, gives me vibes similar to Tame Impala, which I absolutely love.

I also have a special place in my heart for Pop Smoke, may he rest in peace. His music resonates with me on a different level.

EDM Maniac: Wow! never would have guessed, we love asking that question because you never know what you are going to get. Elohim, we appreciate you getting down and deep with us today, it takes a special human being to be so humble and vulnerable through their beautiful musical journey, so thank you for sharing yours with us today. One last question before we go, what are some things people can look forward to coming from you?

Elohim: That was so sweet thank you for saying that, you guys are amazing and so easy to talk to so I appreciate you guys wanting to chat and get to know me more!

So much to look forward to but I did just drop phase one of my 2023 headline tour, I am so excited I could scream! It is going to be powerful and beautiful. Oh and if you sign up for my pre-sale you can win a meet and greet and I am looking forward to meeting all your lovely faces, Peace!
