In The Valley Below, the indie rock extraordinaires from released their epic new album in July. “Elephant” is not only catch, it reels the listener slowly. Letting the hook sink has made this band soar. Don’t fight it. They are that good.
“The song and video were inspired by the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, MO. The song ends with the benediction of a soaring gospel choir, which was recorded in the band’s newly adopted town of Grand Rapids, MI and led by local music phenom Debra L. Perry. The music video is a surrealist cinematic endeavor touching on race, religion and sexuality and how we will all end up in the hands of our children.”
Fans are running out of chances to catch them on the road with Tricky, who released his 13th studio album on his own label False Idols via !K7 on September 22. The album will include several guest, including Scriptonite, Francesca Belmonte, Asia Argento, Mina Rose, Terra Lopez, Avalon Lurks, Smoky Mo, and Martina Topley-Bird.
