Fledging Glasgow band GARDEN OF ELKS have played only one show to date. Their Facebook page has received only sixty ‘Likes’ as I write this… that’s how new they are! (This will soar for sure- especially if you give the page a quick visit here!)
But the trio are no strangers to the music scene in Scotland. Niall plays guitar in the noisnik duo of Bronto Skylift and Ryan plays with Glasgow punk / hardcore band No Island. (Drummer Kirsten is totally committed to this particular project!!)
Musically, this track sort of falls somewhere between the two afore-mentioned bands, I’d say. It’s hard-edged and very bass-driven but still melodic and even a little bit quirky!
The band came together in August this year and by the end of their first month together they has recorded their debut double-A-sided single, ‘This Morning We Are Astronauts‘ coupled with the as yet unannounced ‘other track.’ This mysterious ‘other song’ will go public next month in the run-up to the official launch date of 19th December.
There are plans for a second release early in the New Year.
