Liverpool’s experimental three-piece, ELEVANT are set to release their eagerly awaited new album on their own Elevant Music Limited imprint on the 4th of March 2016.
‘There Is A Tide’, released on CD and available to download, is the band’s third long player and follows their eponymous debut from 2014 and last year’s ‘Dreamface’ release. Recorded and self produced at 3rd Planet Recording Studios in Liverpool, the album was engineered by Kyle Western and mastered by Pete Maher (Jack White, Patti Smith, Scissor Sisters). Without doubt their most complete set of songs to date, the new collection features eleven brand new tracks and includes the recent singles‘Again’ and ‘Audience’.

The Elevant line up of Michael Edward (guitar / vocals), Tom Shand (drums / piano) and Hannah Lodge (bass / organ) haveover 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. Effortlessly twisting a pop hook to their post punk, psych and krautrock sound to great effect, there is an energy and vision that sets them apart from their contemporaries.
