There’s nothing better than discovering a new band, especially when it comes to Elephant Kind who have launched their new EP ‘Live In London’ today alongside a live video of their single ‘Follow Through’.

The EP was recorded at London’s very own Camden Assembly earlier this year and it demonstrates how the trio have evolved, especially with regards to their sonics and exemplary musicianship.

Certain bands are hard to define, especially if they are akin to a smidge of genre bending, but Elephant Kind effortlessly fuse a delectable and effervescent kaleidoscopic collision of invigorating indie beats, arresting alt-pop, and psychedelic jazz-fuelled vibes .

As well as the dynamic and well-rounded ‘Follow Through’, the EP also includes a new track called ‘It Meant Nothing’. Both of which reflect the new sonic shift that Elephant Kind are pivoting towards.

Despite a focus on bringing in the new, there are also a couple of fan favourites in there too from this year’s ‘Superblue’ EP, and ‘Scenario II’ from the soundtrack to their short film project ‘Scenarios’.

One of the best ways to get better acquainted with Elephant Kind is to go check them out on the road as they are embarking on their first UK headline tour. The gigs take place between October 23rd and October 27th and the band will visit cities such as Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Manchester and London.

The excitement is palpable and frontman and founder Bam Mastro says:

“We’re thrilled to embark on our first ever UK headline tour later this month, and the excitement is off the charts! As a special treat, we’re releasing a live EP to give you a sneak peek of the electrifying energy that awaits.”

Despite being in the industry for ten years and having established themselves as one of Indonesia’s leading bands as well as performing with international artists including The xx and Franz Ferdinand, the band have moved to the UK to immerse themselves in the UK music scene and are already creating quite the stir.

It was a bold move – to leave their home country and in essence start over both professionally and personally. Their relocation and journey has been documented in a new short film which is already making waves for Elephant Kind.

But fortune favours the bold and their gamble is beginning to pay off, the first result being the release of their EP ‘Superblue’, which was produced by Sam Petts-Davies (Thom Yorke, Puma Blue, Warpaint) which is already being picked up by the music press as well as seeing their fanbase grow in the UK.
