Hey Elbow was formed a couple months into 2013 by Ellen Pettersson (horns, electronics) and Julia Ringdahl (vox, guitar) with Liam Amner on drums; adding what was missing. The trio makes dreamy, experimental pop with strong melodies and a massive soundscape. The sound and passion from the members of the trio is found in the totally uncompromising way of expressing themselves in the parts they play. Therfor the music is a third of each member and has been compared to the work of Chelsea Wolfe and Portishead.
Since the band started there has been a lot of rehearsing and recordning demos. During 2013 Hey Elbow played a lot of venues around Malmoe and word spread about the music and the band. In the winter of 2013 Hey Elbow met up with producer Joakim Lindberg (MF/MB/, Double Sun) and together they are recording Hey Elbow’s debut album.
Although nothing has to this date been released Hey Elbow has already supported Au Revoire Simone, Cayucas and Color War and played venues like Vega in Copenhagen, Stora Teatern in Gothenburg and Babel in Malmoe. On the 21st of may Hey Elbow will release their first single Blanca.
Their debut album is to be released autumn 2014.
