E'LAST Explores Their New Vibe in 'Thrill' and Shares Their Love for Their Elrings

After 10 months, K-pop group E'LAST made a triumphant return to the scene with their comeback single "Thrill" in February, and it was worth every second of the wait.

The new track demonstrates just how versatile the eight-member group is, showing how cohesive they are and how flawlessly they work together, with a striking rock-infused EDM sound and choreography that makes us want to jump to our feet. It's clear they've grown since last year's mini-album, ROAR, and we're looking forward to further exploration of this new, adventurous sound that consistently gets our blood pumping. We got the chance to chat with the group all about the exciting comeback—and their love for their fandom, Elrings—and they shared it all with us in the interview below.
