Elijah & the Grapes have seemingly come out of nowhere with their powerful singles Now or Never, Sleep in Trees and March. The mysterious project from Elijah Greene has garnered much attention in the blog space, and has been compared heavily to synth pop tastemakers Passion Pit, M83, and Chvrches.
“These tracks lyrically have a spiritual undertone,” Elijah explains. “Opening up your soul to a new wave of consciousness.” An accurate statement about songs that seem to explode out of your speakers when you listen.

Although Elijah has seen strong comparisons to his synth pop contemporaries, there is something entirely unique and refreshing about the vocal work in these songs – something we haven’t really heard before. In addition to releasing original material, Elijah teamed up with Late Night Alumni for a booming remix of Sleep in Trees.
Elijah & the Grapes will release a new EP this fall on KBV Records, and fans can expect a new music video in the near future.
