Hey Elbow — Spring Tour 2018
SSC Booking: bit.ly/2F7pA0i
Hey Elbow consists of Julia Ringdahl (vocals/guitar), Ellen Petersson (horns/electronics), and Liam Amner (drums). With a background in jazz and an ear for distortion they create eccentric pop music with a big sound.
They describe a liberating feeling when they started playing together, like finding something that had been waiting to take form. Their creative process is more intuitive than analytical and they don’t limit themselves with thought-out stylistic moves.
Atmosphere and weight, emotional charge, beautiful melodies and a minimal restraint in combination with a joyful experimentation production-wise, are all contributing components which make it hard to forget Hey Elbow once you’ve heard them.
