Band: ELEPHANT STONE
Who: Montreal based psych-pop outfit led by
singer-songwriter and sitar star Rishi Dhir.

Active: The band formed in 2008 and made 6 studio
albums so far with Hollow as the most recent one,
released in 2020.

New EP: LE VOYAGE DE M. LONELY DANS LA LUNE
Out: 18 February – more info here.

“The EP follows the band’s previous album Hollow, and continues the themes
of destruction and survival from a personal aspect, as M. Lonely comes to realize
life in an imperfect world might not be so bad. Sung entirely in French, a first
for the English-speaking band, the EP is dubbed a love letter to the band’s
French-speaking fans around the world.”

New single: LA FUSÉE DU CHAGRIN

Dhir: “The song is about M. Lonely boarding a rocketship to the moon… so I felt that
the music should be high intensity, while also ebbing and flowing with the journey. I am
sci-fi obsessed, so, as in the past with ‘Andromeda’, I included a snippet of audio from
NASA for the intro and the middle section – maybe you can decipher the morse code?”

Turn Up The Volume: After a 5-4-3-2-1 countdown this rocket blasts into space with supersonic speed. No looking back, full steam ahead, pushed by a banging drum/bass beat and crazed guitars. Somewhere in the middle, it’s time to reload the batteries and start all over again fueled by swirling synths et les dernier mots de M. Lonely.

Psychedelia at its mind-dazzling best.
Un coup de poing formidable!

Join M. Lonely into space, right here…
