Manchester four-piece Elephant Trees have just released their latest single ‘4100’. Check the experimental indie cut out below, then find out a bit more about them in WYM’s Q&A.
Where did your band name come from?
“A group of trees in our home town that look like an elephant, they are the first signal of home after we’ve been away. ”
Is there a favourite venue of yours in your hometown and why do you like it?
“Personally, it’s got to be Guiseley Theatre. I grew up doing shows there and my brother got married there. There is so much history in this building and we always have fun playing it. ”
What is your favourite gig you have played so far?
“Definitely Leeds Pride, it was the biggest crowd we’ve ever played to and the best, everyone just wanted to dance and so did we. “
If you had to describe your own sound, how would you put it?
A chaotic sad disco party
Which band would you love to support?
“Florence and the Machine! Girl power and ginger power!”
Elephant Trees are playing the Brudenell in Leeds on the 28th Feb supporting Larkins, and Wakefield’s Weightless Festival on the 3rd August. You can check them out on Twitter at @theeletrees and instagram at @theelephanttrees
