HEY ELBOW consists of Julia Ringdahl (vocals/guitar), Ellen Petersson (horns/electronics), and Liam Amner (drums). With a background in jazz and an ear for distortion they create eccentric pop music with a big sound.
Adrian Recordings, the diverse label also home to songstress Alice Boman, techno duo Boeoes Kaelstigen and dark punks RA, will release the debut album from Hey Elbow, Every Other, on April 14, 2015.
Formed in 2013, Hey Elbow took its name from an aerobics warm-up exercise they were taught while standing in the audience waiting for a show by The Knife.
With their foundations in jazz and musical education, combined with an interest in noise, improvisation and freedom, they make oddly haunting pop music with a unique and personal expression. None and all of the three members are fronting the band, a democratic philosophy that gives the flugelhorn as much space as the singing, the electronics and the drums.
Atmosphere and weight, emotional charge, beautiful melodies and a minimal restraint in combination with a joyful experimentation production-wise, are all contributing components which make it hard to forget Hey Elbow once you’ve heard them.
