Exclusive first view of The Elephant Trees debut single

We have an exclusive first view of The Elephant Trees debut single “90 degrees“.

Leeds based acoustic fronted alt-rock band formed in 2015 after joining together for a school project they knew they had something special and just couldn’t stop, they have been writing and gigging together ever since, performing in the final of Centre Stage and Soundwaves.

They have spent their time honing their live show, which has helped them secure supporting roles for Jake Isaac, City of Lights, and Billy Bibby (ex-Catfish and the Bottlemen)

With inspirations coming from multiple genres, this has helped them mould their own unique style, inspirations come from acts such as Biffy Clyro, Twenty One Pilots, Laura Marling and Ed Sheeran, they blend a more acoustic singer-songwriter style with huge riffs and singalong choruses to create a unique and infectious sound.

The band had the following to say about the track:

“It’s called 90 Degrees and is something of a live favourite, for both us and the crowd. It was recorded and produced by Mike Heaton of Embrace, at his studio, and mastered by Tom Woodhead. The video was produced by Declan Creffield; we actually ended up doing it in Martha’s old drama teacher’s house, although you wouldn’t know it. And the clean-up from all the glitter was ridiculous.”
