Elohim’s New York Tour Diary: Magic At Webster Hall, Exploring Williamsburg, And Roberta’s Pizza


The elusive electro-pop singer takes us behind the curtain.

Late last year, we introduced you to the elusive singer Elohim, who got the attention of music blogs with the twin earworms, “She Talks Too Much” and “Xanax.” Back then, Elohim took extra lengths to maintain an aura of mystery, concealing her face in press photos with masks and her own hair, and only agreeing to do interviews over the phone (and even then, she distorted her voice using text-to-speech software). But since the release of her debut, self-titled EP, Elohim’s stance around her secret identity has softened, and although she does not appear in the brand-new video for her latest single “Hallucinating,” she did just wrap an extensive North American tour, where she performed her brand of narcotic electro-pop to medium-sized venues across the continent. That included an October stop at New York City’s famed Webster Hall, a memorable experience the singer captured for us in a series of artful photos, which took us through arriving at a beautiful Chelsea apartment, receiving presents from friends backstage, and hunting down Bill Clinton's favorite pizza joint.

Arrived at the most incredible apartment in Chelsea around midnight the night before the Webster Hall show. I felt like I was dreaming. There was an elevator in the apartment! Every piece of furniture was a piece of art. What a treat while on the road.
