Show Alerts: ELEL at The High Watt 1.19

2015 looks like it is going to be the year year for ELEL. With their upcoming debut album to be released on Mom + Pop records and a list of dates ahead of them, it looks like some of the good vibes ELEL has been hashing out are boomeranging back to them. While we might be satisfied listening to “40 Watt” ad nauseum, we’re excited that there is more on the horizon, and we will not be surprised as the rest of the world starts freaking out over them too. The 8-piece are capping off a recent run with lo-fi pop outfit Generationals with a show at The High Watt this Monday, January 19th. –Terra James-Jura

ELEL "40 Watt"

Eight soulful musicians comprise ELEL, the newest band to hit Nashville. Spearheaded by Ben Elkins, they have just come off the euphoria of Bonnaroo to release their first single “40 Watt”.  Magnetizing from its first few seconds and amped up beats, the electric indie pop is anthemic. It emits good vibes and enthusiasm for long summer days. ELEL’s primary influences include Toro y Moi and Beach House, brought to Ben’s attention by his wife Eliska, whose name in turn influenced the band name. After listening to “40 Watt”, you won’t be able to wait until their debut project, Geode. While the project was slated to be released this summer, the date has been pushed back to the beginning of 2015, due to an opportunity to, according to Elkins, "-do it right." -Sammie Spector

ELEL wins Road to Bonnaroo Round 2!

Congratulations to ELEL for winning Round 2 of Road to Bonnaroo this past Monday. Anyone who has caught them around Nashville will not soon forget the spectacle of 8 musicians (or, more specifically, 7 musicians and a very poppin’ Jo Jo Jackson on bass) grooving on stage to their own sexy vibes. The best part about them is that, between the synth and some well-placed hits on a wood block or cowbell, their music would not be too out of place wafting through a hotel lobby or someplace equally inoffensive. This juxtaposition somehow doubles their indie cred. Speaking of duplicates, Nashville’s coolest Muzak band is about to hit the road with *repeat repeat for Iteration Tour 2014, with stops in Austin for SXSW before returning home. “Kiss Kiss” is their latest single. –Terra James-Jura
