Rising British rock crew Elasea express a sound that packs colossal riffs, smart arrangements, and layered vocals.
With influences ranging from You Me At Six, Bring Me The Horizon, and Lower Than Atlantis, the Berkshire five-piece are ready to climb as they release their brand new EP, Lesson Learnt, on Friday 17th March 2017 through all platforms.
Consisting of Andy Bradford (rhythm guitar/vocals), Liv Jones (bass/vocals), Calum Radmore (lead guitar), Ashley Haskell (drums), and Braydie Haskell (keyboards, synth and samples), the band take from a wealth of inspiration and have absorbed their predecessors’ influences before adding their own imposing stamp.
In doing so, they now despatch an enthralling sound that is refreshingly accessible and earnest.
Since their inception, Elasea have always been an industrious unit.
In 2015, the alternative rockers delivered their debut EP, ‘Where I Belong’, to much acclaim from the likes of Already Heard, Alt Corner, Toxic and Punktastic, as well as earning support from Rock Sound magazine.
After this debut release, they reshaped their line-up and added keyboard and synths to an already potent sound.
Support shows with the likes of Funeral For A Friend, AllUsOnDrugs, Veridian, and Echoic soon followed, helping to further refine the band’s own live performances, as well as allowing them to cultivate a growing fan-base.
Now the five-some are braced to strike out on their own. The ascending rocksmiths drop their sophomore EP ‘Lesson Learnt’ this coming March, and it greatly surpasses expectations.
Their new video single ‘Breathe’ starts proceedings in spectacular fashion with its eerie beginnings, before hammering out a soaring riff that ideally accompanies Andy Bradford’s emotive voice.
The track highlights the band’s thoughtful texturing with Liv Jones peppering the cut with her alluring vocals and Braydie Haskell’s adept use of synth.
‘Time Stops’ illustrates the quintet’s notable dynamism and shrewd phrasing, not to mention their towering ability to unleash a beast of a hook equal to Ashley Haskell’s pounding drumming.
‘On My Own’ parades Calum Radmore’s nifty guitar work, as well as exploring Bradford’s vocal diversity, as he bellows out Dave Grohl-esque screams.
By the time ‘Walls’ comes to light, which further reaffirms the band’s stature and quality, you should be suitably convinced that Elasea have crafted a record that truly shines.
