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

Breaking the summer silence

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 30, 2010 by theelliots

After a well-deserved summer break The Elliots returned to the studio this week. Producer Charles Storm hunkered down with parts of the band to record live strings on seven of the tracks.

The Elliots gazed in amazement as super-string-arranger Mattias Bylund and Charles Storm worked their magic together. Mattias Bylund has created some really cool string arrangements that beautifully compliment the mood of the songs. From big, lavish orchestrations to subtle, lingering nuances that color the music brilliantly.

The strings where played by Mattias Johansson (violin) and David Bukovinszky (cello). These two hard-core professionals worked up a sweat, as the session went on for over ten hours. But with excellent results – hats off for their masterful playing!

After adding a few more vocals Charles soon will start mixing the record. That probably will take a couple of weeks. After that we hope to give you some samples of the new songs…

Thank you everyone who participated so far. All of us are so excited for the future and for all the music to come. We’ll check back with you good folks later!
