Des Moines-based duo elison caught our ears with their recently-released single, “Covered Me.” The shoegaze-meets-indie-rock-meets-dream-pop tune is full of tasty guitar tones, a hazy vocal presence, and an impending sense of urgency that inspires feelings of longing and bittersweet realizations. About the song, the duo says:

“‘Covered Me’ is about coming to the realization that, while in a relationship with a narcissist, you don’t really know the person you’re with. That person’s desire to be in the spotlight eclipses all else, even has you questioning yourself.”
