Review – Elephant Stone

Album: Ship of Fools (LP)
Release Date: September 16, 2016
Genre: Indie Rock

Elephant Stone, are a trio hailing from the Montreal area, who formed in 2009.  Members are, Rishi Dhir (singer/bassist/songwriter/sitar), Miles Dupire (drummer/backing vox) and Gabriel Lambert (geetar/backing vox).

I quite enjoyed my listen to their new music being released this fall by Elephant Stone, this being their fourth full length LP.  I discovered many influences throughout the album, some songs giving me reminders of Depeche Mode, other’s of Sloan.  They also create a very unique sound mixing several influences into their own cocktail. The use of the sitar in music always pulls me in, it gives such a beautiful layer to the songs.  Listen and you will see!

I enjoyed the song “Photograph”, it felt like it had a Beatles influence.  My other favorite was probably “See the Light”, it had a happy trippy vibe, that makes you want to get up, dance and sing along.

I’m glad that I was able to discover this band through Canadian Beats, because they have definitely gained a new fan!

Come October they are heading out for some shows in the USA.  Keep an eye on their website and get out to see them if you can.
