Review: Elephant Radio’s new single: Anybody Out There. Released April 12th 2019 – A perfect slice of Indie Rock with an electro twistApril 22, 2019
Elephant Radio are a five-piece pop/indie/rock band from Eastbourne, East Sussex. Freddie (vocals), Joe (guitar), Liam (drums), Seb (bass) and Archie (Keys). Mixing pop with a twist of indie rock they have a loyal fan base, gigging locally, in Brighton and London. Is There Anybody Out There is the latest single to add to their playlist, released on 12th April 2019.
Starting with a sci-fi vibe in comes the drums and bass, guitars revving to join the party. The bass is thumping, and the drums tempered, vocals blast in and the track takes on a smooth pop style. Freddie’s vocals are in your face with an air of elegance. The lyrics honest and blunt, Freddie’s vocals adding a touch of desperate passion, Is There Anybody Out There?
The vocals stop and the drums, bass and guitar become indie rock infused. The drum misses a beat, the guitar blending into the vocals, the drums pick up adding energy to the track. Liam plays with unstoppable energy and the drums fill the track with momentum. The second chorus dips in and I am already singing. Is There Anybody Out There is a punchy catchy track that has you in the palm of its hand after the first chorus, reaching a crescendo of fantastic pop rock as the track comes to an end.
I have seen Elephant Radio live and had the privilege of seeing them up close and personal on The Premium Blend Radio Show in February this year. Is There Anybody Out There is a great live track and a favourite of the audiences lucky enough to have seen it performed. Elephant Radio never disappoint in their live performances, appreciated by the crowd and noticed by the local musos.
After doing a secret gig on April 18th in Eastbourne for their fans and friends they will be playing next at The Brighton Mix-Up Day Two Sponsored by Rotor Videos at the Black Lion in Brighton on May 10th, and 7/7 Nod Ya Head: The All Dayer at The Watermeadow, Fareham on July 7th. Check out their FaceBook page for other future gigs near you.
Elephant Radio are hard working lads and their patience is paying off having done a BBC Introducing live set and The Premium Blend Radio Show. With loyal fans and a passion for music, Elephant Radio are turning heads in the right places. Is There Anybody Out There is a great track, with a great video. Have a listen and go and see these guys live.
