This Week’s Model — Ela Minus, “megapunk”

ela minus

Hypnotic and steely, the new single from Ela Minus is a forceful techno anthem for our wounded times. Born in Bogota and based in Brooklyn, Minus makes music with an impeccable sense of craft, layering on airy, rich vocals that give the whole thing the feel of a dangerous dalliance mounted on some distant futurescape. When she follows up lyrics about standing up in demand for basic right by repeatedly intoning “You won’t make us stop,” the certainty of her promise is formidable. The revolution might not be television, but Minus is going to make damn sure it’ll have a good beat and you can dance to it.
