Elephant Stone drop their new EP
Consisting of two tracks, the instrumental "Godstar" and the expansive "The Imajinary, Nameless Everybody In The World." "Godstar" starts with a rumble, a drone, the deep vibrations of a tabla, and distant voices, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of a ritualistic ceremony. "The Imajinary, Nameless Everybody In The World" invites listeners on a journey through innocence, wonder, ego, power, and ultimately, acceptance and transcendence. Echoing the philosophical nuances of Asimov's Foundation, the lyrics explore themes of knowledge, pride, and wisdom.
Rishi writes "For the 'Dawn, Day, Dusk' single, I aimed to capture the essence of life's cycle – creation, existence, and transcendence. Drawing inspiration from Canterbury folk, Yes, Genesis, Black Sabbath, The Pretty Things, and Talk Talk, I wanted to create a connection that resonates deeply with our fans. It's been an incredibly rewarding experience, and I hope listeners will find something special in these songs as they did for me."
Led by the creative vision of Rishi Dhir, Elephant Stone has been composing immersive psych-pop music for over 14 years. With lyrics that address loss, grief, existential crises, and a world in decay, the band's music strikes a chord with listeners. Their latest release, "Dawn, Day, Dusk," builds upon the success of their previous full-length album, "Hollow," and their French EP "Le voyage de M. Lonely dans la lune."
