Elliot Moss releases collaboration with Elsa y Elmar from forthcoming remix EP

Today we’re excited to announce A Change In Diet – The Remixes, a new EP from Elliot Moss coming March 20th. The EP features re-workings of three songs from his recent album, A Change In Diet, each featuring a collaborator adding their own Spanish-language vocals. Colombian singer-songwriter Elsa y Elmar adds her hypnotic voice to a reworked version of of “Bodyintoshapes,” which you can hear above.

“Whenever I listen to a track I’m invited to collaborate on, either one of the following scenarios happen: A) Once I press play I instantly get an endless flow of ideas for lyrics and melodies. Or B) Not much happens… and then ideas need to be worked for a long time. What happened with ‘Bodyintoshapes’ was scenario A), which was awesome,” explains Elsa y Elmar namesake Elsa Carvajal. “I think Elliott is a very skilled and talented artist, and even though I am usually very skeptical about using two different languages in one track, I think this song feels very natural. It’s a cool, euphonic track, and I am very grateful I was able to be a part of it.”

The EP, which you can pre-save now, also includes Miami R&B artist Brika reimagining “Rabbit Roads” and Mexico rapper Go Golden Junk adding a new verse to “Silver + Gold.”

Elliot Moss releases A Change In Diet

Today marks the release of Elliot Moss’ new album A Change In Diet, a beautiful collection of minimalist electronic music, alternative R&B and indie pop. 

Earlier this week, Moss dropped “Bodyintoshapes,” the final tease from the album. The song is built around the motif of “bending a body into shapes,” which is fitting as that phrase is used as a conceptual launching pad throughout the album. “This song speaks about bending to someone’s needs; agreeing to change for them,” explains Moss. “Doing everything to preserve love, even if it means sacrificing what makes you happy.”  The track follows additional pre-release singles “Barricade,” “July 4,” and “Silver + Gold,” which caught the attention of outlets including American Songwriter (“ambient, trance-synth pop”), FLOOD, and Atwood Magazine (“One would be hard-pressed to find an artist as intriguingly inimitable as New York-based musician Elliot Moss”), among others.

To celebrate the release, Moss also launched achangeinfortune.com, a site and experience indebted to the fortune cookie motif of the album cover, which features the message: “Your problem just got bigger. Think, what have you done.” At the site, users can have their fortune told and receive their own Spotify playlist inspired by the fortune and a song on the new album. Fans can share their fortunes or playlists across socials with the #achangeinfortune hashtag.

Elliot Moss releases “Silver + Gold,” latest single from A Change In Diet

Elliot Moss today shared the cinematic music video for his evocative, slow-burning new single “Silver + Gold,” directed by himself and Kevin Condon.  “‘Silver + Gold’ is about putting your search for happiness into a person or object,” says Moss. “Something tangible to chase after. Only to realize that in doing so, you’ve misunderstood the meaning of happiness altogether.”  The track is the third released from Moss’ forthcoming sophomore album A Change In Diet, due out January 17th, and available for pre-order over in our shop right now. Elliot will hit the road in support of the album next year. Tickets available now on his artist page

Elliot Moss delivers second single from A Change In Diet

Elliot Moss today shared the video for his latest A Change In Diet single, “July 4.” The clip, directed by Elliot himself, was premiered over at FLOOD Magazine.   “While recording, ‘July 4’ served as a sonic touchstone for the record,” explains Moss. “You can hear bits and pieces of it in the other tunes, also. It really helps to have a way of measuring what fits and what doesn’t…I was fortunate that it came along first.” The album is also now available for pre-order on CD, standard black LP, or a limited edition opaque white vinyl. Grab it here.

In other news, Elliot will perform next in Brooklyn, NY at Elsewhere Zone One on December 4th, and has announced additional winter 2020 North American tour dates including LA’s The Echo on February 17th and Chicago’s Subterranean on February 27th. Check his artist page for dates. .

Elliot Moss returns with new single & music video

Elliot Moss is back!

Today we’re thrilled to announce that Grand Jury will be releasing, A Change In Diet, the new full-length from the NY-based songwriter and producer. You can hear “Barricade,” the first new Elliot song in over two years right now. It’s accompanied by the music video above, a gorgeously texted clip directed by Madeline Kate Kann.

“This one used to be called ‘Golden Dark,’ because that’s the feeling…adrenaline rushing as a result of being lost, hurt, or isolated,” says Elliot. “Adrenaline that continues as you’re reminded by things, by your own routines, of someone or something you’re trying to forget. An anxiety that you eventually might look to shield yourself from at whatever cost.” 

Those themes run throughout A Change In Diet,  a record that captures a period of upheaval for Elliot that altered his habits, relationships, and even his songwriting. Across the 11 songs, he methodically details the nature of change and the ways it can be liberating, discomforting, and often essential. “A change in diet is one of the first things that any self-help resource or therapist will recommend to you,” he explains. “The title is almost a joke because it feels like a crazy oversimplification of your problem. But at the same time it’s not wrong. It’s rarely one singular change that needs to be made, it is many incremental changes. And everything contributes.”

Today also comes with the announcement of Moss’ first show in over a year, a stop at Elsewhere Zone One in Brooklyn on December 4th. Tickets will be available this Friday at 10AM ET. More dates will be announced soon.
