Elliphant to perform in Istanbul
ISTANBULEllinor Olovsdotter, known by her stage name Elliphant, will perform at Istanbul’s Babylon on March 7.
The Supreme Board of Radio and Television (RTÜK) fined a TV channel in January for the music video of Elliphant’s “One More,” which features a scene of two women kissing.
The RTÜK report that set the grounds for the fine said the kissing scene was aired without any measures, such as obscuring the scene or using pixelization. The clip also contains visual elements and gestures alluding to sexual intercourse, which could negatively affect child development, it added.
The 27-year-old Swedish artist is praised for her unique style and futuristic sound, a blend of 90s pop, reggae, indie and dubstep. Well-known for the 2013 song “Down on Life” following the release of her first single, “Tekkno Scene,” Elliphant has a studio album named “A Good Idea,” and two singles “One More” with MO and “Purple Night” featuring Doja Cat.
She has a nomination for the 2014 P3 Gold Award “Newcomer of the Year.”
