Elukas drops the official video for “Vein”

Prepare for a sonic explosion as punk rock discovery Elukas drops the official video for “Vein”. This power-packed track is part of their EP “Loomad Koos”, scheduled for re-release through Wormholedeath.

In their music video “Vein”, the band showcased an unwavering DIY spirit, working with a short budget. The video’s direction was skillfully handled by their bassist, Alan, who was eager to explore his talents as a music video director. Impressively, all the daring stunts featured in the video were executed by their nearly-semiprofessional stuntman, who also happens to be the band’s lead vocalist, Karl.

The song itself delves into the theme of addiction, and the band wanted to convey that message visually in the video. Even if the lyrics might not be crystal clear to all their listeners, Elukas hopes the video tells the story in a powerful and visual way.

Experience the punk-rock revolution as Elukas unleashes “Vein” on the world.

In the fall of 2021, Elukas began as a 5-member punk-rock band with a focus on creating their own music. They played their first concert on March 25, 2022. In May, they recorded 3 singles at Sinusoid Studio and held a writing camp at the drummer’s summer house. In late summer, their original bass player left, and singer Karl took on bass duties. In the fall of 2022, they released three singles at monthly intervals. “Ajurünnak” gained recognition on RockFM and Raadio2. Due to an injury, Alan filled in on bass and later joined permanently. In February, the band recorded their debut EP “Loomad Koos”. The single “Vein” (April 7, 2023) made it to the top 5 best new rock songs by RockFM listeners. Most recently, Elukas graced the stage at the Barbar Feast 2023 festival, where they kicked off the event as the opening act. They also rocked the crowd at the Heavy Music Estonia Showcase Day 2023.
