SELF-TITLED EP OUT NOW VIA ARTS & CRAFTS
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES CONTINUE AUGUST 19
“...like an artier version of Metric.” Toronto Star
“Energetic, contagious, dramatic, and euphoric” The Revue
“...the band is raw yet totally developed, and leap onto the scene with something to say. …full of promise for a band on the rise.” Northern Transmissions
“...guitars bouncing between shimmery sweetness and fuzzed-out distortion, as frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche's vocals float atop.” - Exclaim! (On “Voices”)
Today, Hamilton’s Ellevator are sharing the new video for “New Survival” from their self-titled EP, out now on Arts & Crafts.“This song could easily be taken as an anthem encouraging you to shake off your past,” says frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche. “But if anything, it’s about embracing who you’ve been and who you’re becoming and melding those into one.”
The video explores and dramatizes “that duality that exists in all of us,” says director Christopher Brown. “The person we feel we are and the person we are seen as. The person we have been and the person we’re constantly becoming. Our bold stage persona and the quieter one behind the curtain. We uncovered that there is both a tension and a harmony between these two opposing identities. So, this video is also less about abandoning an old identity for a new one, and more about discovering the place where those two identities blend into one."
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).
This year alone, Ellevator has had successful tours in the US/Canada supporting Our Lady Peace, Matt Good, BANNERS, and a stadium show with Cold War Kids, Bishop Briggs, and Arkells. The band heads out on tour this Fall supporting Dear Rouge and Sam Roberts with stops throughout Canada. Full tour dates can be found below.
