Elder Island  

Carving out a genre-defying space for themselves in our musical landscape, Elder Island captivate with shapeshifting songs. The trio’s sound cherry-picks and transforms elements from genres as diverse as electronica, indie, pop and neo-soul.

When developing their debut album, The Omnitone Collection, the band invited producer Ali Chant (Portishead, Perfume Genius, M.Ward, PJ Harvey) to assist with the development of the album and worked with him to refine the tracks at his Bristol-based studio, Playpen, during Spring and Summer 2018. Released in February 2019, The Omnitone Collection is an extraordinary album boasting ten tracks that are rich tapestries of tiny moments in time, but also sweeping soundtracks riven with ambition. They are songs to lose yourself in and be swept away by, but also to decipher and contemplate.

Singles released from the album have been spectacularly well-received by fans and critics alike, with the evocative ‘I Fold You’ accruing over 95,000 streams in the week of its release, and featuring on Spotify’s Release Radar and other editorial playlists. Other single releases from the album include the funk-infused ‘Don’t Lose’, and ‘Kape Fear’, a percussion-heavy track with an R&B inspired hook.

Refusing to rely on electronic backing tracks or pre-recordings, they create unique and atmospheric live shows where multi-layered beats and melodic broodings stir emotions and never fail to get crowds dancing.
