Punk rock bombs Elukas proudly presents their latest lyric video for the track “Laika,” taken from their critically acclaimed EP “Loomad Koos,” reissued via Wormholedeath.

“Laika” narrates the poignant story of the iconic space dog, highlighting her innocent journey from a normal existence to the cosmic unknown as she was propelled into orbit in 1957. The song encapsulates the tragic tale of Laika, reflecting on her unwitting heroism and the inherent cruelty of her role in a scientific experiment devoid of her consent.

Exploring profound themes of innocence, sacrifice, and the ethical dilemmas surrounding the utilization of animals in scientific endeavors, “Laika” provokes introspection into humanity’s moral responsibility towards other creatures. The track contemplates the ethical implications of subjecting living beings to scientific experiments without their comprehension or consent.

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.
