To those familiar with it, the name “Elpis” means “hope” in Greek. According to the story of Pandora’s Box, she was the last spirit to come out of the box when Pandora opened it.
But today, the name “Elpis” has a new meaning. It now belongs to the newest and hottest dance diva ever to hit the music scene today. Her first single “Probably” is now available as a digital download.
Elpis is an Italian-born singer who has been creating raves over the European airwaves since 1997. Known as Alexandra to people close to her, Elpis was once the one-third of an all-girl act who also went by the name of Elpis. But now, with the two other girls going on to do their own thing, Alexandra is carrying on the work she started with the group and bringing to listeners across the world her own brand of dance music.
The musical style of Elpis and her vocal quality often reminds listeners of top charting artists in the RnB scene, such as Timbaland and Rihanna. The sultriness of her voice is very much comparable to that of Britney Spears on the latter’s single “I’m a Slave 4 U”. Her voice also possesses the cool sexiness of the legendary diva Madonna.
It is that cool sexiness of Elpis that made her one of the most sought-after artists to perform in clubs all over Europe, particularly Germany and her home in Italy. But it is not just her hot and breezy voice that draws in the crowds to watch her perform. The lady is also blessed with a beauty that matches.
Though still unsigned with any major label to date, Elpis is already generating positive reviews from radio listeners in Europe with her single “Probably.” Her new single definitely has the makings of true dance music, with its urban adult contemporary beat blending perfectly with the seductiveness of Elpis’ vocal style. It is also strangely sentimental despite being music with an upbeat rhythm, with its lyrics telling the story of a girl who is probably in love but does not know what to do about it.
A first single “Probably” certainly is, but Elpis is highly likely to throw in more surprises soon. She is currently at work on a full studio album that will be released sometime in the next few months.
“Probably” is available as digital download. Listeners can enjoy it fully by visiting iTunes, Napster, CDBaby, Amazon and MTV in Europe (SE-FI-DK-NO). Station managers can also have their very own radio ID of “Probably” recorded in high quality by Elpis herself. The radio ID is absolutely free of charge. To do this, they only need to email their request to her official website.
