Liverpool three piece Elevant have released a new single Hide it Away as they announce a tour which comes to Chester next month.
Hot on the heels of their third full-length album, 2016’s There is a Tide, Elevant condense their sound to its essentials on Hide it Away and push away from the grungier sounds of their earlier output, sharpening the hooks and tightening the rhythms.
Here drummer Tom Shand and bassist Hannah Lodge deliver a slinky yet unhinged post-punk groove, both weird and danceable, while frontman Michael Edward weaves inbetween, adding dashes of sinister psychedelic colours and crooning seductively.
To mark the release of the new single, the trio will take their live show on the road, coming to Alexander’s in Chester on Sunday, September 4.
The Hide It Away single is the latest release on the band’s Elevant Music Limited label which frontman Michael Edward set up just over a year ago.
The fledgling imprint recently released the debut single from Oxford’s Too Many Poets in January 2016 and are set announce some exciting new signings in the coming months.
The Elevant line-up of Michael Edward (guitar/vocals), Tom Shand (drums/piano) and Hannah Lodge (bass/organ) have over the last two years combined their love of My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, St Vincent, Bauhaus, Tame Impala, The Melvins and Portishead to create something very special.
