It’s no secret that there’s something in the water in Sweden, and one of the brightest stars from our Nordic neighbor is Elliphant, the Jamaican-Swedish pop star who’s being mentored by Dr. Luke and championed by Katy Perry. (No big.)
Previous efforts have seen Elliphant’s inventive alt-pop-reggae-lite sound going from downtrodden to celebratory, but she’s hit exactly the right stride with “Could It Be,” which has a stronger pop sensibility than any of her previous songs, even as that Caribbean patois curls her delivery on the chorus.
Fittingly, the video is slightly bonkers, as Elli begins to slowly unravel cooped up at home. Even in this context, though, she still kinda looks like a pop star — just one who’s on the brink of a total breakdown.
Watch up top.
