Last autumn, singer-songwriter, actor and activist Elsi Sloan quickly rose to the attention of a larger audience with the lead role and the theme song of the French-Finnish film Heartbeast. Simultaneously with the film’s release, Sloan recorded their first solo album. Sloan, who rapped in French in the movie, released their versatile debut album sung in Finnish, “Pakko muuttua”, in February 2023. With Elsi Sloan’s multi-faceted debut, the lyricist, who observes their surroundings in many ways, combined elements from rap, folk, spoken word and art rock in their unique pop music. Elsi Sloan is a luminous performer who breathes through improvisation.
