INFO: Denmark‘s The Elephants are great fun. Their music is so infused with an uplifting, sunny vibe that it instantly puts a smile on your face. This is Brian Wilson-esque power pop awash in gorgeous melodies, harmonies, backing vocals and quirky instruments.
The Elephants‘ debut album had come out in 2007 to ecstatic reviews all over Europe, in Japan and even in the Philippines. Followed by a string of impossibly great live shows. I fondly remember them blowing away the crowd at a tapete party here at our office in Hamburg just after we had signed the band. The smiles on the faces of the people there was a sight to behold indeed!
