Elephant, The - The Elephant (LP)
Catalog number: KCR013
Many bands ( and label promo sheets ) may tell us they are different, unique, and are evolving their sound to a new level you have never heard before. This Italian trio in contrast, The Elephant, truly is. The blues and stoner rock ‘n rollers, formed just last year, have even signed a worldwide record deal with Karma Conspiracy, who will release the band’s first full length on October 25th.
“When we listened to the master of this debut by The Elephant, it didn’t really seem to have a band to debut. This year is a fundamental turning point for our label and this album will be another confirmation.“ Says label owner Phil.
Feeding on a sound that is characterized by the combination of two (!) distorted basses, stubborn and obsessive rhythms with their roots in the blues, alternated with alienating and psychedelic atmospheres; it’s especially also this unique voice of singer and bassist Giovanni Murolo, who gives the trio its very special vibes, soul and grooves. The Elephant’s self-titled album is the result of a year’s work, with themes heavily inspired by the poetry of William Blake, Dylan Thomas and Henry Michaux.
