About Hills like Elephants:
Hills like Elephants are ready to make themselves visible to you. The band, which has been breaking new ground in the San Diego scene, are ready to unleash their perfect brand of indie pop onto the masses. Releasing their first single titled “Invisible Ink,” Hills Like Elephants are ready to invade your headphones. The extraordinary track is filled with thumping drum beats, carefully picked melodies, bright and resonating pianos and singer Sean Davenport’s dreamy yet upbeat voice. A little bit blues, a little bit Pavement, Hills Like Elephants seem to have the perfect blend that will immediately catch your ears. After all, that is what they have set out to do and they seem to accomplish it flawlessly.
About Maren Parusel:
The gorgeous and synth filled album was created out of the ashes of disaster for Parusel in New York City last year as she had her instruments stolen. Though this was actually a blessing in disguise, what came of her sound is a revamped style of guitar-driven tones, synths, and the ability to take on the world. Exactly what you have been waiting for.
With a voice reminiscent of Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino, with a dose of pop flare thrown in, Parusel brings every piece to life. The finished product can be described as a polished and danceable collection of dreamy tracks with bandmates Eric Brozgold (drums), Josh Cass (guitarist), and Chris Hoffee (bass) in tow.
