Following the release of their new self-titled EP out now on Arts & Crafts and successful tours in the US/Canada supporting Our Lady Peace, Matt Good, BANNERS, and stadium show with Cold War Kids, Bishop Briggs, and Arkells, Hamilton band Ellevator share new single called "Dirt".
The band explain the meaning behind "Dirt": "When you make a record, there are always songs leftover. ‘Dirt’ is one of those shimmering hues that didn’t fit the colour palette of our recently released EP. It’s a lusty, meandering ballad about vain attempts to ignore the shame/guilt/weird motivations of your past, and accepting that all that shit eventually comes to light anyway. Songs like this are usually relegated to some forgotten hard drive, remembered only for the 20th anniversary deluxe repressing. We’re releasing it now instead - just our little secret, okay?"
Led by the haunting and ethereal vocals of Nabi Sue Bersche, Ellevator strikes a balance between catchy indie rock bands of the early Aughts (Metric, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) at their best and radio rock hit-makers (Arkells, Sam Roberts).
Good music seems instantaneous: a decisive rush of expression and dopamine. Hamilton, Ontario's Ellevator captures 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.
