New Music: Elison

Rising Des Moines duo Elison unveil their new single ‘Fruit Flies’ today. By expertly blending elements of indie rock with shoegaze and dreamy pop, this emerging musical project craft sounds that feel raw and captivating in tone, while also maintaining an emotive essence.

‘Fruit Flies’ tells of the self-destruction that could occur if we allow ourselves to over-romanticise the memories of our younger years:

“When I started playing music during the pandemic, after decades of wishing I was brave enough to try, I found myself revisiting the girl that ignited the dream in the first place, my sixteen-year-old self. Through that process I started questioning the actual growth I previously thought I had achieved.” – Marissa Kephart, Elison

Elison comprises of lead singer and guitarist Marissa Kephart, and Scott Yoshimura – who also serves as a producer, engineer and multi-instrumentalist for the project.
