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.”

Turn Up The Volume:: I always have been a fan of Rishi Dhir. He has that gift of
writing songs that take you somewhere where you can dream, reflect and meditate.
On this overall excellent EP he does it with a moony psych-pop daisy (M. Lonely), a
racy and invigorating ripper (La Fusée du Chagrin), a melancholic and starry-eyed
gem with weeping guitars (Solitude) and a gloomy goodbye (Adieu).

Psychedelia at its Elephant Stone best. Formidable!
