Sounds of 2014 - #13 - Elephant

After stumbling upon them while supporting Chapel Club a while ago now we've been loving their début EP. What's more is that their latest single "Skyscraper" has got the blogging world in a frenzy, generating a lot of buzz around the London duo. Elephant are Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck. A conclusion that songwriting and documentation should only be accomplished by the turn of night, and should never leave comfort and safety of the bedroom.

One thing I love about going to see a great band is that sometimes you strike it lucky with the support acts, and the opening act tonight was no exception. The band in question is Elephant, a young two piece band based in the capital, they play as a 3 piece live due to lots of layers in their songs. They had a very minimal approach when I first heard them on the internet, think of a British version of Active Child!

After releasing some singles and their EP via Memphis Industries (Dutch Uncles, Polica and Tokyo Police Club) they've got a dedicated fan base already. I hear wind of another EP coming out in 2014 and possibly an album. They certainly have their destiny in their hands as the world is once again coming round to the idea of chilled out music with crisp vocals and well produced music. Their latest release suggests their debut album is set to be one of the standout albums of 2014.
