Floating Above The Water (Live)
Magic Door Record Label
Dreamy and art inspired, New Jersey dream-pop figureheads Elk City bring a new video single made by H. Robert Escurel. Recorded live at Brooklyn’s Union Pool, the video brings a fresh outlook and another page in the chapter-turning adventures of the band. A new album is out, Above The Water LP contains all the recent singles, this feature track, and a lot more. Available on the Magic Door Record Label, this new production puts another key in the hands of the listeners to unlock some wholesome vision food. The group have inspirations ranging from PJ Harvey to 10,000 Maniacs, so we can expect a spectrum of quality that flows from these multiple sources. Formed by drummer Ray Ketchum and vocalist Renée LoBue, the band quickly gained a full line up. With Sean Eden from Luna and Chris Robertson from Feed (a Psychedelic Furs side-project) on the guitars, Richard Baluyut from Versus takes the bass. Elk City has been enjoying the twilight sounds of happy hour since the year 2000. This latest record is, however, a brand new era for the progressive and psychedelic band.
Waves on sonic togetherness range from side to side as the band enchant us with the first few bars. Guitar rises from the mists of sound with a slender drum score to make everything stable. The vocals begin, introspective and gothic tones curdle like shadows at dusk as the resonant band sound rises and falls like gusts of soul-clearing wind. Spellbinding disparity meets utopian sonic presence as the music drips from tilted dimensions into glistening cups held by eager magi. Elements of neo-folk bring a soulful edge as shining lights of tone speckle the Whitby jet backdrop with ever growing stella intensity.

Buoyant and choppy licks open with a swagger of summertime and openness. Vocals enter with a synonymous simulacrum to themselves. Instantly recognisable and hauntingly beautiful, a playful melody unravels over the frame of music that springs up like flowers in a lush meadow. The progression of the music keeps the ball rolling along the wide open lane as trees and minor landmarks crawl by at a snoozy and dreamy pace. Laid back yet invigorating with folky charm, Apology Song from Elk City takes us from A to B in perfect contentment.
