Ela Minus is Gabriela Jimeno, an artist relocated from Colombia to New York City and who is ready to release the last episode of an EP trilogy. Following “First Words” and “Grow,” the artist will close this project with a 4-track offering titled “Adapt”. The names in itself compose a discrete metaphor of her growth as an artist but they could represent as well the challenging course of any person into Humanity. “Adapt EP” is set to be released on February 17 via YEBO Music.
With “San Juant”, Ela Minus maintains an aura of mystery and delivers a sweet tiny dance anthem that both comforts and makes you think
The lead single, “Juan Sant,” is mysterious. It is labelled as “bright music for dark times.” The sweet tiny dance anthem, that reminds us of NOIA’s “Nostalgia Del Futuro”, hints at the Colombian president and raises issues without pretending to do it. Ela Minus is used to creating and singing about metaphysical questions. She can also express the struggles and the doubts that the people are going through without being binary or demagogic. As a woman and, in addition, who is hailing from South America, she could have also named her latest single “Don Trump.” Whatever… the strength of her music is actually what is not said, some cinematographic sequences of faces smartly turned into emotional electronic music.
