Rave reviews for “Love | Decay”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2011 by theelliots

“Dark, moody, hard and honest. The new album from this Gothenburg band has something for everyone. I myself am in love. I give it my highest rating, a five. Finally.”
5/5 —  Christoffer Nielsen, Västerviks Tidningen

“Though there is no doubt that The Elliots can easily fill an arena with their awesomeness, but where the band really excels is in their quieter offerings.”
—  Will, Tympanogram

“The Gothenburg band The Elliots uses the same kind of lush and emotionally charged effects that built The National’s pop historical sadness on High Violet.”
4/5Philp Enestubbe, Smålandsposten

“A dramatic duet with Swedish chanteuse, Camela Leierth, lead single When Evil Happens is a particularly nice slice of this noirish pie.”
—  Richard Morgan, My Old Kentucky Blog

“On ”Love | Decay” they melt together influences from The Cure, Nick Cave and U2 into their very own version of atmospheric pop music.”
4/5 — Andreas Jakobsson, Upsala Nya Tidning

“…this is something special. The emotional songs and melodies are magical.”
Magnus, Kentuckyseven

“The music sounds larger than the band, at any level, but even though I have heard all these melancholy sounding tools used before I like the sound of grown men revelling in their teenage angst.”
3/5Johan Lindqvist, Göteborgs Posten

“There aren’t enough of these songs these days, so i grab them whenever i can. See what you think.” — Stephen Marshall, The List

“…the majority of songs are nice pop songs with a slightly darker undertone…”
4/ 5 Peter Alzén, Gävle Dagblad

“The Elliots’ ability to juggle their dark juggernauts with more radio-friendly efforts, and occasionally interweave the two, is one of their strengths and will be one of the reasons for Love|Decay’s future success.” – Mike Mineo, Obscure Sound

“The Elliots’ vocalist Petur Olafsson has a bass voice that gives me hot chills. It sounds like U2, The Killers, Coldplay and sometimes even like Nick Cave.” — Jessica Svefors, Skivkoll

“The songs are at their best in the backseat of a taxi on a rainy autumn night in a neon-glittering metropolis where everyone seems to have given up. Alternatively, very early one summer morning down at the water’s edge when the air stands still and the clouds are reflected in the water.” –Robert Ryttman, Zero Music Magazine

Hooray! Today “Love|Decay” is officially out. You can download it at iTunes, Amazon, Napster and other places. Or even better, buy it tonight at our release gig at Sticky Fingers, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Here’s the last track we will let you have a sneak listen to. Enjoy.

Countdown part 4: Never Let You Down

Posted in Uncategorized on June 9, 2011 by theelliots

Time for a darker, heavier track. A sweeping anthem about lost friendship.

Countdown part 3: Desolate (L´Étranger)

Posted in Uncategorized on June 8, 2011 by theelliots

Todays tune: A soaring indiehymn with lyrics inspired by a novel by Albert Camus. Don’t forget to come to Sticky Fingers, Gothenburg, on Saturday and hear it live.

Countdown part 2: Search and Disbelief

Posted in Uncategorized on June 7, 2011 by theelliots

The title is inspired by Iggy & The Stooges “Search and Destroy”. But while Iggy throws out screeching, adrenaline-ridden rock’n’roll about war and destruction in the name of total conviction, this melancholy song from The Elliots deals with uncertainty and the lifelong search for truth.

Countdown part 1: Hold On

Posted in Uncategorized on June 6, 2011 by theelliots

Starting from today we will start a countdown to our live gig on Friday. Every day we will post a new track from The Elliots new album “Love|Decay”. This is the starting track called Hold On.

Please tell us what you think!

The Elliots new album “Love|Decay” out June 10th

On their new single, “When Evil Happens”, The Elliots cooperate with singer/songwriter Camela Leierth. The dramatic duet indicates how the band’s new album “Love|Decay” will sound.

Together with producer Charles Storm, The Elliots have developed a darker, more atmospheric sound. The new songs get their potency and melodies from American indierock, but classic English Britpop from the eighties and nineties also influences the band.

– At first, we wanted the record to sound like REM’s “Automatic For The People”. But the material took us in other directions, says singer Petur Olafsson. Our arrangements tend to get more grandiose than we originally plan. But there are also some songs on the record that are stripped down to only vocals, piano and strings. The record as a whole sounds like a hybrid of Nick Cave and The Killers.

The name of the new album relates to the realities of long-lived-in relationships, the bonds that tie so tight they either save you or choke you. The record deals with the band members’ life situations – the time when suddenly your past effects life just as much as your future possibilities.

The Elliots’ first album “Bullet for Pretty Boy” was released in early 2008. Five of the songs from the album have been in the U.S. series and movies such as “Melrose Place”, “Kyle XY”, “Veronica Mars”, “Moonlight” and “American Pie – The Book of Love”.
