Elephant, the London duo comprising Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck, can finally reveal details of their debut album.
Set for release on Memphis Industries on April 29th and titled Sky Swimming, the album is a seductive, night time delight of a record, all trilling keyboards, swooping melodies, broken hip hop beats, looped strings and Amelia’s uniquely curved vocals.
Highlights include current single “Elusive Youth” plus last year’s sensational tracks “Skyscraper” (a bonafide hit in France) and “Shapeshifter,” Sky Swimming is a fibrous collection of songs about relationships – their own included, which broke down during the making of the album – hazy memories and twisted dreams.
The album is available for pre-order from the band’s site at www.thisiselephant.com with an exclusiveSky Swimming T shirt and instant download of “Elusive Youth.”
They’ve also put together a mixtape of tracks that helped inspire them during the writing of Sky Swimming, available to stream here.
