Described as “unpretentious, unadulterated rock n' roll,” Elephants' self-titled debut album is at once loud and energetic, gritty and earnest, melodic and full of “catchy hooks you'll never forget” (The Noise, June 2013). Listen on those-elephants.bandcamp.com to see for yourself.

Biography

Elephants are an indie rock quartet from Boston, MA. Elephants' self-titled debut album was recorded by Trevor Vaughan (of Rival Mob, XFilesX) at his New Bedford, MA warehouse studio and released on those-elephants.bandcamp.com. The album's thirteen songs range from raucous and fuzzy to washed-out and dreamy to bright and poppy. The tracks form “a massive sound... that’s devoid of doom, gloom, and aggression” with a “highly melodic flow” and “catchy hooks you’ll never forget” (Will Barry, The Noise, June 2013). The band's influences include '90s indie rock, garage rock, and punk singer-songwriters.

Sharing lead guitar duties, Ryan Young and vocalist Lauren Garant construct infectious melodies and solid guitar work, while drummer Mike Cashin and bassist Meagan Day provide driving rhythms to complete Elephants' high-energy, high-volume songs. Elephants has been heard on college radio stations including WZBC 90.3 Newton, WMFO 91.5 Tufts University, and WMUA 91.1 Amherst, and seen in Boston Hassle, Boston Band Crush, The Noise, and The Deli New England.
