Growing up in Cupids, Newfoundland, a town of less than 800 people, Elita spent most of her childhood in isolation. She changed high schools frequently as a teenager. Feeling removed from friends, she found comfort in social media, where she began to gain a following on Instagram in 2015 and started modeling.
In 2017, Elita launched her own business designing zines and, a few years later, a weapons jewelry line. That same year, she met her boyfriend, Tim. Although Elita hadn’t engaged in anything musically since she was a teenager, Tim recognized her musical potential and encouraged her to start singing again. The couple recorded a cover of “After Hours” by the Velvet Underground.
With a growing interest in cinematic arts, Elita focused on writing a movie script with Tim (to no success). However, this attempt at collaboration led to them writing their first single, “I Hate Everyone But You” in 2018. Thereafter, Tim concentrated on writing more songs with his bandmates and sending these instrumentals to Elita, who would write lyrics and perform vocals. This collaboration led to the eventual recording and release of Elita’s debut EP, Sick Girl (2019), which was followed by the EPs Blood Sucker (2020) and Anxiety Angel (2021). These projects combined have earned over 30 million streams.
