Conflictus is a sassy electronic pop song that captures the inner conflict at the crossover point in which the dreamer in you dies and you become a realist in relationship expectations and love. ELKAE explores a heavier side to her electronic soul sound and vocals with this powerful pop track. Conflictus rounds off the story of ELKAEs two previous releases: SOLD the first date, I FEEL – the progression and now Conflictus, the exploration of the mindset as the relationship comes to an end.
