London's Elephant Tree have slowly but steadily gained a deeply reverential fan base since their 2013 inception, through hard work and exemplary studio output. Marrying the sonic density of doom à la Pallbearer with the vivid psychedelia of contemporaries such as Elder, 2020 and beyond is somewhat of a coming of age moment for Elephant Tree as they move from a band in their infancy to magisterial mongers of their world within and outside of genre confines."
My A&R musings aside, it’s safe to say Elephant Tree‘s sophomore outing is high on my list of most anticipated records for 2019. From the couple songs I was fortunate enough to see live in October at Høstsabbat, only more so.
