ELEL – Animal

Nashville alt-pop seven-piece ELEL shared a new single off their upcoming debut album Geode, which will be released through Mom + Pop Music this summer. The song is called Animal and it has a very dense, glorious sound, made of heavy synths that match the unceasing pace of the track, which already received a spin by the rainmaker Zane Lowe on Beats1. Speaking on it, bandleader Ben Elkins said: “It’s a loud song about a soft moment between two people. I love writing music from my imagination, and sometimes that can be energetic and grand. But my lyrics are usually based on everyday life, which is much calmer. It’s exciting to let those two versions of my reality meet each other in a song like this.
