‘Elysium’ is the latest tune from indie electronic duo, Nocturnal, which consists of members Catarina and Lourenço
Based in East London with a 2019 EP already under their belts they spent lockdown working on new material and so ‘Elysium’ was born. It’s a chilled, groovy track with funk inspired drum patterns that switch to a more mellow synth harmony and adding a rock element with the addition of electric guitar and the occasional subtle vocals.
A song that can be enjoyed alone as a late night, more relaxed tune or with friends, when allowed again of course. ‘Elysium’ will have you swaying along to the beat. The word ‘Elysium’ in classic Greek mythology means ‘the abode of the blessed after death’ or another definition is ‘any place or state of perfect happiness, paradise’ and this song definitely makes you feel as though you are up high on cloud nine.
Available now on streaming platforms including Spotify and Soundcloud, ‘Elysium’ is well worth a listen.
