A full-bodied and multi-layered affair, it’s what folk would sound like if it departed the Wesley Anne and mixed with the likes of soul or dub. - Inpress magazine


With a mix of jazz, pop and a hint of electronica the result is a sound that familiar enough to enjoy if you stumble into once of their gigs by accident, but different enough for them to stand out against the current crop of artists doing a similar thing. - Electric Skeleton


Delicately played, lonely bass strums introduce this tender track featuring alternating female (Kate McMahon)/male (Stu Hazelman, also on skins) vocals. An undercurrent of drums and keys never overwhelm the singers and when their two voices meet and overlap, the tone is intimate and confessional as if you’re listening through a wall into a private conversation. There’s some inspired rhythms in the instrumental break, which showcases some outstanding musicianship. The other side of this double A-side, Wake Up, has a speakeasy quality and experimental keys that mimic the sound of The Tardis shifting timezones. Elephant Eyes bring something refreshingly understated. - Inpress magazine


A warm and subtle mood piece from the emerging Melbourne band, Elephant Eyes. The twin male/female lead vocals are beautifully paced, slow and purposeful, dancing through the hum and quiver of carefully placed notes. This jazz club meets indie folk sound is lean but lovely. - Beat magazine

Bio

Elephant Eyes came together in the summer of 2011, when the school halls were empty and classes were over. All four members met while studying Music at NMIT in Melbourne. Elephant Eyes combine weird time signatures and synth tones with jazz chords and soul-influenced vocals to create a unique sound where Radiohead meets Joan as Policewoman.
