Elephant Revival Petals on LP
Colorado progressive transcendental folk quintet Elephant Revival return with their eagerly anticipated new album, Petals (Itz Evolving Records/Thirty Tigers). Formed in 2006, Elephant Revival is known for their thoughtful, literary inspired lyrics combined with an eclectic blend of arrangements performed with traditional folk instrumentation.
The 5 songwriters and multi-instrumentalist's approach is unique and fearless as they create genre-defying, yet highly accessible, music that has continuously evolved into a signature sound. That sound has never been stronger than on their fourth and finest offering, Petals. Guided by the songwriting and haunting vocals of Bonnie Paine and Daniel Rodriguez, Elephant Revival has as much in common with American roots music as it does with indie rock.
The songs on Petals touch on themes of love, overcoming loss and following your own path while remaining connected to others. Bandmates Bridget Law, Dango Rose and Charlie Rose add beautiful harmonies and superior musicianship, creating an ensemble of guitar, fiddle, washboard, cello, bass, horns, pedal steel, mandolin and banjo.
Petals was produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive, Langhorne Slim) and recorded at the Great North Sound Society in Parsonsfield, ME and The Studio at eTown Hall in Boulder, CO.
