Watch ELKAE's highly anticipated live performance tonight on the Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
Tonight on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series, we're delighted to present ELKAE – going live on the Hot Press Instagram at 7.30pm!
Since the release of her debut single in November 2018, emerging electronic soul artist ELKAE (aka Dubliner Laura Keane) has fast become one of Ireland's most thrilling new talents. 'Sold' landed her coveted spots on an impressive selection of Spotify editorial playlists, as well as a sold-out headliner at The Sound House. With subsequent releases, she has built up an ever-growing following – and played two slots at 2019's Electric Picnic.
Last month, she returned with the title track from her upcoming debut EP, Girls Like You Like Me – featuring contributions from Lydia Ford, Chloe Agnew, Zapho, Toshín, Karla Chubb of Sprints, Sinead McConville and Taylor Mas.
As part of ELKAE's highly anticipated performance tonight, she promises an "exclusive first listen to a few brand new songs!"
With the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, we've been able to shine a light on some of the best young and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer over the last year – with a brilliant selection of acts joining Hot Press on Instagram for special live-streamed performances.
Following the remarkable success of last year's Y&E Series – which featured 120 live acts, and an audience reach of over four million – the new edition launched last month, with a dazzlingly diverse selection of artists set to join us over the days ahead.
Watch ELKAE on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series, supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, TONIGHT – Wednesday, May 5 – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
