Shadows with Elisabeth like a dream - An Interview

O duo mezzo francês, mezzo sérvio Elisabeth like a dream é daquelas deliciosas precisiodades escondidas no submundo dos bons sons.

Aleksandra Plavsic e Myriam Bâ criaram as pérolas do EP "Sing Sing" de 2014 e do recente single "Shadow" lançado neste ano, sempre envolto a um clima melancólico entre beats eletrônicos dançantes com nuances de pós punk e aquela aura de sonhos encantadora.
