♜ Elder Island
► Köln, Kulturkirche
Elder Island are vocalist and cellist Katy Sargent, bassist and beat maestro Luke Thornton and guitarist and synth master David Havard.
Carving out a genre-defying space for themselves in our musical landscape, Elder Island captivate with shapeshifting songs. The trio’s sound cherry-picks and transforms elements from genres as diverse as electronica, indie, pop and neo-soul. The result is a web of sound that threads poetic lyricism and unfamiliar instruments over a backdrop of electronic elements and synth-heavy dance beats.
Their sophomore album ‘Swimming Static’ follows 2019’s acclaimed debut “The Omnitone Collection”, which has seen the band amass a massive 200 million global streams and over 1 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Elder Island have headlined 60 international shows to date, performing at large capacity venues across the UK and the US including The Roundhouse (London), The Marble Factory (Bristol), Bowery Ballroom (NYC), El Rey Theatre (LA) and The Fillmore (San Francisco). In addition to this, the band have performed alongside Maribou State, DJ Seinfeld, Folamour and SG Lewis.
