Today, Ellevator are sharing their latest single “New Survival” and announcing their upcoming tour dates across Canada with Matt Good and Our Lady Peace beginning on March 16. Full tour dates can be found below.
“New Survival” is a song about “leaning into my weakness and letting go of an identity I had been building for so long,” says frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche. “I grew up with people telling me I was special. My knack for writing simple songs was put on a pedestal and treated like a superpower. I was taught that I was a conduit for an unseen force, chosen from the crowd to leave a mark on the world. That responsibility terrified me, and I spent a lot of years trying to live up to other people’s high-hopes. The pressure built up until it broke me, and early into adulthood I began to see myself for what I was: tender, weak, and nothing like the great master I thought I’d be. The song is about finding the person underneath all the noise and learning to live with them, even if I don’t always like them.”

Good music seems instantaneous: a decisive rush of expression and dopamine. Hamilton, Ontario's Ellevator capture that direct hit of immediacy, with a closer listen revealing the meticulous design of their muscular pop songs. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche delivers raw lyricism with quiet power. Her nimble melodies anchor the electric hooks and cinematic timbres Ellevator has refined on countless stages.
Formerly known as The Medicine Hat, the band recently signed with Arts & Crafts and will release more new music in 2018. Details to follow soon.
Ellevator is Mike Boyd, Elliott Gwynne, Nabi Sue Bersche, and Tyler Bersche.
