Today, Elyxr are debuting their single “Planes” featuring Elissa LeCoque of Kodacrome. ELYXR is a brand new collaborative-band concocting modern synthpop potions. Spearheaded by Seattle-based electronic music songwriter/producer Kasson Crooker (Symbion Project, Freezepop, Rocococo), ELYXR will release a string of singles this summer, each a collaboration with a different singer/songwriter. The debut track “Engine” was co-written with Elissa LeCoque of the Brooklyn indie-electronic act Kodacrome.
Quote from Elissa:
“I actually had Kasson’s production in my headphones for long before I ever met him. I have a distinct memory of Less Talk More Rokk getting me through the final stretch of running Bay To Breakers! So it was great to play a show with him in Brooklyn years later. When Kasson suggested a collaboration, I was excited for the opportunity to work on something a little more poppy than my typical Kodacrome repertoire. In a lot of ways, I feel like it can be more challenging to write a great pop song than a dark one. It somehow takes more guts, at least for me. As it turned out, working together was really easy, since I trust his ear and sensibilities, especially when it comes to melody and progressions.”
