Never Come Down
Toronto shoegaze outfit Elsa announced the release of EP Never Come Down back in the summer of 2014, and after long, cold months of waiting, it’s arrived. The dreamy textures and fuzzy guitar riffs of earlier effort I Do are further explored here and refined still, with a breezy melodic undercurrent keeping matters from becoming too dour. Sonically stunning throughout and cleverly crafted. Fucked Up’s Mike Haliechuk was wise to sign this quartet to his One Big Silence label. Let’s hope they continue to deliver the My Bloody Valentine-esque goodness on their upcoming full-length (which should come out later this year).
Elsa will throw an EP release party at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on April 25, along with likeminded acts Darlene Shrugg, Wish, and Sahara. Head to Facebook for more info.
