The Ellipsis – Elsewhere

Continuing to earn potent praise and attention at every turn, British outfit The Ellipsis recently released their new video/single Elsewhere. Following on from their rousing previous single Cold Cactus, the new track sees the band’s creativity becoming even bigger and bolder, an attribute which seems to escalate with every release without losing the instinctive catchiness of The Ellipsis sound.

Emerging in 2013, the Coventry hailing band has become a keenly followed live proposition across the UK and an eagerly welcomed source of rousing rock ‘n’ roll through a host of singles around their attention grabbing debut EP Mind In The Sky of 2016. That live presence has seen the band The Ellipsis headline Coventry OxJam in front of 30,000 at the Ricoh Arena and play last year’s Godiva Festival in their home town. Now it is Elsewhere pushing things again, the Darren Lawson (White Lies, The Enemy, Bloc Party, Wolfmother, Placebo) mixed song and its energetically tenacious and imaginatively lit video reminding of the potential and creative imagination within the band.

The song leaps into view on a rally of beats from Alex Bonsor, the guitars of John Connearn and lead vocalist Henry Bristow colluding in a feisty tide of riffs before the latter’s distinctive and ever enjoyable tones court ears with a “boy meets girl” story. There is an air of shadowy intrigue to the song sparked by the brooding basslines of Harry Green, just one hue in the kaleidoscope of essences making up the captivation swiftly working on body and thoughts.

Easily the track is the band’s most eclectic and adventurously layered yet, every listen revealing a new twist and lining in a proposition much busier in craft and invention than it maybe seems upon the first couple of listens. In many ways, The Ellipsis sound and songwriting has come of age with Elsewhere though there is the feeling there is more adventure to come for which anticipation is already ripe.

Heyrocco – Elsewhere

9f38ce25-3fb0-42a8-95bc-37f69ac633e0

It is fair to say that US band Heyrocco wowed the UK with their debut UK tour not so long ago and has gripped a broader expanse of attention through their sounds and releases, especially their Mom Jeans EP. Now with their Soundcloud profile alone hitting over 250k plays over the last six months, the South Carolina trio release new single Elsewhere; the song a potent confirmation of the impressive emergence of the band and a rather tasty appetiser for impending debut album Teenage Movie Soundtrack from which it is taken. The song is a spicy and vivacious dose of angular guitar rock soaked in the distinctive sound which has already drawn comparisons to the likes of Nirvana, Pavements, and Mudhoney.

Elsewhere is a continuation of an already successful tempting of ears and attention through earlier releases and their dynamic live presence. It is fair to say that the threesome of Nate Merli (vocals/guitar), Christopher Cool (bass), and Taco Cooper (drums) has been increasingly finding eager appetites for their dark, nostalgic pop tunes self-proclaimed as ‘Disney Grunge’, since forming around five years ago. Recently the Charleston band as mentioned, has been wooing British audiences on a tour which included headlining a sold out show in front of 1400 people for Club NME @ KOKO. With the release of Teenage Movie Soundtrack looming, the album several years in the making, 2015 is looking another potent proposition for Heyrocco and could not have got off to a more flavoursome start with Elsewhere.

The single is straight into ears with jabbing beats, tangy hooks, and the engaging voice of Merli. It is a start allowing no time for senses and imagination to take a moment to ponder, instead forcing them to greedily devour the lively bounce and almost mischievous character of the song. Within a few further breaths of expressive syllables and spiralling melodies, all wrapped in a acidic spicing, it is easy to see why the band has been matched to those comparisons earlier mentioned, but equally there are whispers of bands such as The Libertines, Arctic Monkeys , and UK’s own newcomers, The Jacques to the song.

Elsewhere continues to dance and flirt with the listener through gradually bolder and more muscular rhythms and the unpredictable but easily accessible nineties seeded endeavour of the guitars. By its close, the single has made the strongest persuasion and bred keen anticipation for the upcoming album, whilst showing Heyrocco as a real feel good proposition with flirtatious shadows that all should consider becoming more closely acquainted with.

Elsewhere is available from February 23rd via Vital Music Group @ https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/elsewhere-single/id958133606?ls=1
