In Lake Urmia, Elsa Mirzaei and Kat Pavelic make sad songs to dance to.
Tangled in hypnotic synth tones and a tug between the East and the West, the band's careless and catastrophic moods unearth sequences of day-dreams, diaspora, and queer identity.
In June of 2017, the band released their first self-produced EP, Wine Time. The band is currently writing for their next EP, Yengejaleh, which will be released in September of 2018. In the sophomore release, Elsa furthers the narrative of the endangered Lake Urmia, their native land, through Azeri-Iranian-inspired melodies within their current synth pop waves.
