New ELLEH: “I Can Be Your Best Friend”

The music Tokyo-based duo ELLEH have released thus far has resided in the shadows, dance music for people with a lot on their minds. As loose-limbed as their songs can get, a sense of doubt — or melancholy for some relationship lost — hung over head. “I Can Be Your Best Friend” is the first ELLEH song that gives it self over to optimism. Over a particularly energetic beat and synth, the group put one foot forward — the lyrics focus on taking that chance (the title hints at where it goes), and even though failure hides in the corners, ELLEH just don’t care about that here. The thrill of a new opportunity…even one with no end point…is enough. Listen above.
