From the outskirts of New York City, Elora moved to Brooklyn during her undergrad with her partner Theo Walentiny (pianist, composer, producer). The two began producing Elora’s songs in 2020 while sharing an apartment with no doors in quarantine. The lack of privacy brought them closer, learning how to collaborate through being stuck inside together, resulting in a sound that represents both of their own styles. As a duo they’ve performed in NYC venues Mercury Lounge, Theatre 80 Saint Marks, Rockwood Music Hall, Our Wicked Lady, The Broadway and with Sofar Sounds NYC. Theo’s dreamy sound design and Elora’s grounding guitar playing create a warm canvas where the songs feel as alive as the experiences from which they were written.

Sonically, the track gives us an indie rock / alt pop sound that Elora and her co-producer, Theo Walentiny, executed perfectly.
The soundscapes of leaping folk-inspired melodies and distorted electronic echoes make for something representative of the exciting individuality that technology brings to today’s music.
“Embers” is a cracking song and is a must listen for those who like alt/psych/dream pop.
Aside from the relatable lyricism, the song’s production is nothing short of sublime, and presents listeners with a sound that is reminiscent to artists like Tame Impala and Wallice.
