Elevant Announce New EP + Release Video For Forthcoming Single 'Nowhere'
Liverpool Rock trio Elevant are pleased to announce their new EP 'Here Come The Cold Sweats'. Further details of the record will be revealed over the coming months, but for now the band have shared the video for lead single ‘Nowhere’ which is released 27th April 2018 ahead of their appearance at WRONG Festival. The visual marks director James Lyall’s first foray into music videos, and was filmed in Liverpool John Moore’s University TV studio. Subverting the ‘band plays song’ cliché music video (by first of all taking the piss out of that concept at every opportunity), as the song progresses the band’s playing deteriorates into a shambolic mess whilst their equipment collapses around them. The entire video was filmed in one continuous shot, requiring an “excessive amount” of takes to complete. Commenting on the single, front man Michael Edward said: “Although the tone of the video is more sarcastic than that of the song, we thought that having everything fall apart despite our best efforts was a good mirror for the lyrical themes. ‘Nowhere’ was written from a real rock bottom relationship moment coming from the stresses of trying to help and be in love with someone who was going through a bad bout of depression, and not knowing what to do or how you can make a difference at all. It's still fairly emotional to sing it now, and as much as it doesn't read like it, it's probably the closest we get to writing a love song.”
‘Nowhere’ will be available to download on April 27th.
