Hey Elbow (SWE)
Hey Elbow consists of Julia Ringdahl (vocals/guitar), Ellen Petersson(horns/electronics) and Liam Amner (drums). With a background in jazz and an ear for distortion they create eccentric pop music with a big sound. Their debut album Every Other was released on April 14, 2015 by Adrian Recordings.
Formed in 2013, Hey Elbow took its name from an aerobics warm-up exercise they were taught while standing in the audience waiting for a show by The Knife. With their foundations in jazz and musical education, combined with an interest in noise, improvisation and freedom, they make oddly haunting pop music with a unique and personal expression. None and all of the three members are fronting the band, a democratic philosophy that gives the flugelhorn as much space as the singing, the electronics and the drums.
