Success in the music game—or any other publicly-visible field—often requires women to tailor their appearances and behavior to match gender norms. Booth newcomer Elle Araminta, however, ain’t about to compromise her values for a little money and fame. On her debut digital single, the Northern California native lampoons the Plastic Principles that govern contemporary society. Over the mellow, jazzy sample work of CFO Recordings capo Spends Quality, Araminta showcases versatility to match her satirical wit, switching fluidly been sung vocals and rapped flows. This joint is just a loosie but, if you’re feeling it, you can keep it locked to our front page for all the latest from this talented indie buzzmaker.
