BAND BIOS >>>

Elevant
Elevant are a visceral, exciting and smart rock band. Able to blend genres effortlessly whilst always retaining their own sound that can kick you in the gut or softly soothe (on occasion), they spin dark tales of modern day disillusionment. They combine crushing riffs with warped sonic textures and irresistible grooves, all whilst maintaining a knack for infectious hooks. Their new EP has seen widespread acclaim, as well as playlist spots on radio stations such as KEXP and KCRW in the US, as well as others worldwide.

SPQR
Listening to SPQR is like being a passenger in a speeding car, at 2am, with a body in the boot and a driver you’re pretty sure put it there. They’re like a musical representation of the minds of Cronenberg and Lynch, bending a sinister slink to their dirty art rock. The rhythm section of Bex Denton and Jack Sanders provide the foundation for Peter Harrison's freaky guitar colourations and his intensely passionate, crystal clear voice to burrow into your mind. Recently featured in The Quietus, they're 

Gravves
Matching Future of the Left noise and humour to Queens of the Stone Age hooks and seductive sleaze, Gravves are noise merchants bar none. With their debut EP Rattle garnering acclaim and bagging them a host of festival appearances this year, their live ferocity matches the record. They occupy that space where a strange duality of punk fury, alt-rock hugeness and truly infectious songs coexist. Blasts of vicious feedback live alongside a sinister swagger in fantastic songs.

Kapil Seshasayee
Kapil Seshasayee creates avant pop bar none, a sound unlike any other. A one man combination of Scott Walker, Mark Hollis, Bjork, and Richard Dawson, creating something wholly unique. He combines Big Black style drum machine beats with thundering baritone guitar, stunning vocals and and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone. Truly experimental yet still accessible. He was also recently featured in The Quietus talking about his forthcoming concept album about the Indian Caste System.

Pocket Apocalypse 
Pocket Apocalypse are epic and intimate all at once. Effortlessly blending unpretentious post rock grandeur with alternative rock and progressive flourishes, their songwriting is taut and rich with experience, the band playing off each other effortlessly. Frontman Nick Jones' passionate and absorbing vocals can range from a delicate whisper to soaring and melodious and to a righteous barbaric yawp. His and Chris Catterall's guitars intricately weave together, spiralling in tandem whilst in a rhythm section bar none, Phil Dunn (Drums) and Leandro Cuzzocrea (Bass), Lock into unison and lend their songs not only hypnotic grooves, but a craftsman's detail.

Black Pudding
Black Pudding are a garage rock band with a twisted sense of humour. Born from the ashes of Leeds noiseniks Stilts, they filter their righteous anger through a seductive veneer, with a knowing wink and a punk sneer. With a touch of the Ty Segall/Thee Oh Sees thickness to their riffs, The Wytches' foreboding gloom and The Cramps' weirdness, they have everything a growing boy needs. Their forthcoming singles Sci-Fi Si and Tillagio have already been playlisted on KEXP.

Salt the Snail
Salt the Snail are raucous, hardcore inflected punk rock, with their tongues placed firmly in their cheeks, and their mic stands probably in two pieces. With an unbelieveable start to their career, they've managed to play with Fucked Up and The Membranes in their first run of gigs, and are set to release a single with Loner Noise this year.

Federãles
Federales are what would happen if Fugazi didn't take themselves seriously, and had Iggy Pop. Combining Dinosaur Jr style slacker guitar with elements hardcore punk and a devilish sense of humour. On top of that, they possess an electrifying live show.

Bleach Sweets
Born from frustration and boredom, Bleach Sweets are a savage noise rock two piece, their songs bristling with acidic humour and equally acidic feedback. They come on like the bastard child of the Melivns, The White Stripes and Frankie Boyle, but with all nuance removed.

Normal Life EP - Out Now

Happy EP launch day to us! You can now listen to/download/buy the vinyl of Normal Life. A lot of love went into it and we hope you enjoy it x

‘Normal life’ is not something we normally associate with musicians and bands. Elevant, however, are certainly beginning to make the release of challenging and thoroughly enjoyable records look like ‘business as usual’. - Louderthanwar

The Record Label 

Some rather amazing news has befallen us of late. I (Michael) have managed to get a place on a trade mission to the United States of America to meet with a plethora of music industry types, hopefully open some doors to the record label we've been running since the start of the band, Elevant Music Limited. As such, since things are hopefully about to get very interesting, I thought now would be a good time to tell the story of the label so far.

I formed it just a few months after Elevant formed, the plan being for it to be a vehicle allowing us independence, plus having a label lends you a certain clout. The first few months were very much a trial by fire as I quickly had to come to grips with booking tours for an unheard band, which is tantamount to working in a call centre, and the legal minefield of getting all the required contracts and certificates in place. I had from the good people at Ditto Music and Sonic PR, who've helped coordinate releases and press, and generally guided me at each turn. Both of Elevant's albums have since come out on EML.

Where things started getting interesting was upon going to the Sound City conference. Suddenly, from running a label from my front room, I'm talking with the head of music at CBS, the manager of Simple Minds, Savages and My Morning Jacket's booking agent, handing out my business cards, emblazoned Elevant Music Limited - Record Label, Michael Edward - CEO, and was treated with equal respect. I had the good fortune to talk to Viv Albertine of The Slits there and she gave me the sage advice and encouragement that "It's far more revolutionary to start a company and make something for yourself than it is to stand there scowling on stage in ripped jeans like we did in the seventies". The personal is very much political.

What'll happen in the future, who knows, but I know I'll be working my arse off as always, and that's a good thing.

by Michael.

Michael went to the Sound City conference and it was totally worth it 

A lot of musicians might not even think of the conferences that happen at festivals, instead getting excited about planning their route around the musical delights of the weekend, but it's so very worth it. They're an opportunity to rub shoulders with the big players, the movers and shakers, the people with many, many years more experience in the music industry than you.

It helps if you go prepared, and it helps even more if you go with a total lack of inhibition in talking yourself up to strangers. I gave out business cards to everyone I physically could, and got a huge pile of them back. Just from mooching around by the bar, I met the booking agent of My Morning Jacket and Savages, a guy who runs a stage at Glastonbury, the head booker for SXSW, and the head of music at CBS, among a host of others.

If you're a musician, it can be a difficult game to play, as a lot of the time people will assume you want something from them for nothing, so I tended to lead with that I ran our record label, and played as well. This tended to get a bit of respect and piqued their interest more. Generally, I tried to soak up as much wisdom as I possibly could. I learned a lot about ways to try and make money as a musician such as sync deals, licensing your music or image out to brands for advertising, which while once considered "selling out", is now becoming a necessity of trying to make a living as a musician. There were panels on PRS funding, getting onto festivals, how to survive touring abroad, the ins and outs of being a manager, the list goes on.

I was also lucky enough to meet some of my heroes: a drunken and belligerent Mark E. Smith, the king freak Julian Cope, and Viv Albertine from The Slits, who was an absolute delight. Beyond business contacts, if you go to a festival conference, you might just get to witness Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips doing an impression of Nick Cave trying to make it through a festival set with diarrhoea, and really, that's worth it on its own.

VINYL 

We're doing a limited run of transparent green vinyl of Dreamface. Catch is we need 100 pre-orders for it to go to press. Help us out. The link's below x
