She is currently recording her fourth album in British Columbia.

When you think of Minneapolis' musical legacy, two things probably come to mind: fast, brawny punk-infused rock (the Replacements, Hüsker Dü) and, well, Prince. Even if you expanded those horizons to include alt-hip-hop acts like Atmosphere and P.O.S., you still wouldn't find much in the way of throbbing, Balearic-leaning electro. It's surprising, then, to find out that Elite Gymnastics call the chilly terrain of one of Minnesota's Twin Cities home, especially when listening to "Is This on Me?", a highlight from the duo's Real Friends EP. Then again, if you're going to be making music in such a climate, you might as well arm yourself with a warm pulse, as well as plenty of sunshine samples and high-pitched chimes that twinkle like an ice castle bathed in soft light. As the summer months heat up, "Is This on Me?" somehow manages to feel like a blast of cool air while keeping things appropriately warm.
