Elohim and Skrillex share cerebral video for ‘Buckets’ [Watch]
Skrillex knows a star when he sees one, and his recent backing of emerging vocalist Elohim should be a telling signal. We’re watching a breakout moment unfold for the young OWSLA recruit, behind the recent success of two Skrillex co-signs, “Connect,” and the ensuing “Buckets.” The latter is a buzzing anthem of unrest, and now we have an equally angsty video to round out the pair’s collaboration.
The new Jonas Risvig-directed video for “Buckets,” takes a deep dive into pent up teen spirit, delving into the anxiousness of European youth culture, evoking distant visual remnants of Skrillex’s Lost Boys narrative from 2011’s “Bangarang” video. Elohim’s shrill vocals ride a gritty trap-influenced foundation as the track’s aesthetically dark video feature perfectly complements the Skrillex co-produced beat. See the video for “Buckets” below, and keep an eye on Elohim, 2019 is primed to be her year.
