Elements of Style

Elements of Style


Music that will make your ears scream for joy!


A powerful pop foursome from West Bend, Wisconsin, Elements of Style is a breath of fresh air in the crowd of repetitive modern music. Creating an alchemy of 20th century music, the band presents a sound that is just as original as it is enjoyable.

Formed in 2001 as a cover band, Elements of Style used these songs as influence to their early music. After the departure of some of the early members, the final lineup was completed in 2004 with the addition of bassist Jeff Paulus and guitarist Tom Casper. After winning studio time in a local contest, the band started recording their debut LP in late 2004. Released in the summer of 2005, the freshman release of the band presents the poppy fun of their early music.

Over the next year, the band quickly matured their sound and progressed greatly as both musicians and songwriters. Playing with such acts as Maritime (ex.Promise Ring/Dismemberment Plan) Ivory, The Spill Canvas, and Burbank Cartel (ex. Alligator Gun), the band has also gained somewhat of a following from the Indie-rock crowd.

In January of 2007, the band entered the studio once again for their follow-up album, entitled "Whisper Ship/Rage Cage". The album brings forth the band's more developed sound, drawing influences from everything from house to classical to rock while keeping true to their pop roots. Produced by guitarist Iver Hillman and mastered by Trevor Sadler of Mastermind Studios, the album is seated for a Summer 2007 release.
