Elephant – Skyscraper

Elephant

If Elephant’s “Skyscraper” doesn’t put you in a heavenly place, then I just don’t know what will. The London-based duo of Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck capture a grand scheme of sounds that may be what Beach House would sound like if they were going for a more cheery direction.

Moving choir chants pair with Amelia Rivas’ vocals, all echoing over the silky guitar line and thumping bass. It’s a dream-pop combo that is quite reminiscent of our favorite Baltimore act, but it’s too good to hold it against them.

Memphis Industries will release a 7″ of “Skyscraper” on March 25. Last year they released their debut EP, Assembly. A debut album is on the way.
